The university management of Chemnitz University of Technology invites to the Hartmann hall to celebrate the new winter semester 2017/18. Due to the good partnership between Chemnitz University and the Chemnitz basketball club NINERS, for the first time, the venue of the NINERS will be used as event location for the matriculation ceremony of the university. The invitation is addressed especially to all students, employees, alumni, friends, and partners of the university. The ceremony will take place on October 5, 2017, at 5 p.m. The entrance opens at 3.30 p.m. to give visitors the opportunity to use information offers – for example, the presentation of student initiatives and other exhibits.

After the welcoming speech of the University President, Prof. Gerd Strohmeier, the guests await a colorful program: Aside from greetings from the City of Chemnitz and the “Student_innenrat” of Chemnitz University, there will also be an interview with Chemnitz University employee Joseph Heß, who swum 620 kilometers in the Elbe River within twelve days. The event is framed by cultural and musical work of the university orchestra Collegium Musicum e. V., the university choir, the TU Big Band, ballet from the Chemnitz Theater, and the NINERS cheerleaders.

All new students will also receive a trendy university shirt, a welcoming package with several vouchers and free tickets of a value of more than 500 euros, as well as attractive presents.
