We are a group of (mainly) students engaged in helping international students feel at home far away from home and providing them opportunities to get to know new people and their new environment. Besides this, we promote the idea of going abroad among local students.
Most of us study at TU Darmstadt but we also have members from the Hochschule. The majority of our team members got to know ESN during our own exchange semester abroad. When we came back to Darmstadt, we wanted to do the same - giving back the support we recieved during our exchange.
Others experienced a lack of such an organisation, so they want to give exchange students in Darmstadt the support they would have wished for during their own semester abroad. And some of us didn’t do an exchange (yet) but got to know ESN through friends or flat mates and decided to join
We all work on a voluntary basis. To discuss current issues and plan events our team as a whole has regular meetings. Moreover, we work in committees (Event, PR & Communication, Partnership, Website & IT) so that our members can get involved more easily. Since the very beginning of ESN Darmstadt our team has been constantly growing and developing, which we are very proud of. If you're interested and want to experience some internationality even being here in Darmstadt you can join the team - we're always happy to welcome new members.
If you are an exchange student coming to Darmstadt and joining our events (or our coffee hour), do not hesitate to contact us!
We are always happy to help
