On February 27, Dickinson-in-Bremen went to see Werder Bremen play against Darmstadt 98 (an ascender from the second league). Let’s say, the game was a little unfortunate – only a draw of 2:2… But we had fun nonetheless!
For the last couple of seasons, Werder has been having a somewhat bad streak in the German league called Bundesliga: Right now, we are on the so-called relegation spot, which means # 16 of 18 teams. The last two teams will be directly relegated into the second league (in exchange for their top two), and the 16th will battle the 3rd of the second league. Of course, we do not plan on doing that, but stay in the first league for sure. After all, Werder Bremen has a long history and tradition in the Bundesliga and is, in fact, the second best team in the all-time table!
“Lebenslang Grün-Weiß.” The green # 14 is our beloved Peruvian striker Claudio Pizarro.
On February 23, 2016, the University of Bremen proudly presented its Yearbook 2015 and celebrated it with a reception. Since the focus of this yearbook is “cooperation,” it highlights Dickinson College as one of the most esteemed partners and as an example of very fruitful cooperation. Please find the article on the Dickinson Durden Bremen Program here:
Additionally, a film was presented at the reception, which entails interviews with the most important partners of Uni Bremen – and Dickinson is featured here as well, in interviews with the student Madison Alley, with President Nancy Roseman, former Rector Wilfried Müller, and head of the International Office, Annette Lang (starting at 6:15):
