In celebration of the anniversary week in early May, there will even be one film every day. Benedikt Plank, Head of the film club, talks about the plans.

For TUMstudinews, they answer questions about their time in Zambia and tell us why they first had to look for their tools there.

    A full schedule, appointments and little time to rest – for many, that's what the semester is like. In Freising, there is now a new possibility to get away from it all for a while: the "Meditative Isarweg" along the riverbanks. Between the Korbiniansbrücke and Savoyer Au, there are nine stations that invite you to take a break. The concept was developed by TUM students.
