The Durden Dickinson Bremen Program Is Back!

Like most exchange programs, our Dickinson-in-Bremen program had to be suspended since last year due to the pandemic. But there is a silver lining on the horizon: We are planning to re-open this fall! We are more than excited to welcome the first group of Dickinsonians back in Bremen in October 2021. Currently, our staff is in full preparation to create a rich and attractive program for the winter semester. We cannot wait to meet our students in person and hopefully see those red Dickinson chairs on the campus of Uni Bremen not so lonely anymore! 🙂

Bremen was rated as the most bicycle-friendly major city!

As reported by the Frankfurter Allgemeine newspaper, the German Federal Minister of Transport, Andreas Scheuer (CSU), awarded the most bicycle-friendly cities in Germany according to ADFC, the General German Bicycle Club. Here, Bremen leads among cities with more than 500,000 inhabitants, ahead of Hanover and Frankfurt.

For this ninth city comparison, the bicycle club examined 27 aspects such as acceptance as a road user, public bicycles or the feeling of safety. Around 230,000 people took part in an online survey. “I want cycling to become energy, enjoyment and joie de vivre much more often again,” said Scheuer.
