Fachgruppe Englisch

Each year students of English choose the board (Vorstand) of the Fachgruppe English. Our official duties consist of university politics, but we also organize get-togethers, parties and other activities around the English Seminar.


When there are decisions to be made at the English Seminar, students have a right to participate. The FG Vorstand is kept up to date on all goings-on at the seminar, mainly through the Departementsversammlung (meeting of all Modern Philologies) and the regular staff meetings at the English Seminar.
We also hold general student assemblies once a semester where all students meet and have a chance to voice their concerns. During these meetings we also re-elect new FG Vorstand members. Since all students of English are automatically part of the Fachgruppe this is really the place and time for you to come and hear news about the things going on at the seminar and to discuss any issues you might have.
As of June 2016 our Vorstand is made up of the following people:

President: Alexandra Grasso
Vice President: Emily Harries
Communications: Julia Brosi

Leisure activities

In the past we've organized a number of parties and events. Regular movie nights are one of our most well-known activities. Our yearly summer barbeque has become very popular and we were very proud that so many people came to it this summer 2012. Halloween parties are also becoming a regular yearly event.
To keep up to date on our activities, please visit our blog and/or our facebook page.
