From October 12 to October 14, the Cambridge University German Society – an association of alumni and friends of the British elite university living in Germany – holds its Annual General Meeting on campus. Among other points on the agenda, aims of the meeting are to recruit future Cambridge students and to discuss possibilities for cooperation with Jacobs University.

October 11, 2012

Guests are inter alia Andrew Noble, the British Vice Ambassador Sir Leszek Borysiewicz, Vice President of Cambridge University as well as Sarah Squire, President of the Hughes Hall College at Cambridge University and Chairwoman of the Kurt Hahn Trust, an organization to foster Anglo-German understanding. In addition, fifty Cambridge Alumni are expected to attend.

One highlight of the meeting is the “Dies Academicus” on October 12, during which Jacobs students and other interested prospective students are invited to find out about study and research opportunities at Cambridge. As part of "Dies Academicus 2012", Edward Vick of EVS Translations will talk on "The arrogance of English. Why English rules the world." So far about thirty Jacobs Alumni also hold a Cambridge degree.

All participants of the Annual General Meeting are also invited to the charity concert "Piano to Forte" hosted by Jacobs students on the October 13 at the Campus Cinema.
