In addition to what you have read about this Student Council on our website so far, we have great news for you:
You can participate!
If you are wondering what you could do at the Student Council and what would be the benefit of spending time at the Student Council in addition to your studies and leisure time, let us tell you!
You already know how you want to join? Excellent! Take your next step here.
What you can do at the Student Council
The Student Council activities are divided into several units and appointees, university politics, as well as the organization of events.
Of course we are always interested to see new faces and helping hands in all these areas!
Units and Appointees
The Student Council has several units and appointees which are responsible for various specific tasks. Did you ever want to know who actually makes these questionnaires that are distributed during lectures? Are you interested in 3D printing or working at a real classic printing press with ink and plates entirely without digital technology? No problem, our printing unit has both! And we have many more units.
You can find out what the different units do exactly on the below pages:
- Computer Unit
- Printing Unit
- Finance Unit
- Garching Unit
- University Politics Unit
- impulsiv Unit
- Information Unit
- Study Introduction Days Unit
- Script Unit
- Survey Unit
- Event Unit
One of our most important tasks is to represent the students’ interests in various committees of the departments and to give them a voice. To this end we have representatives in many committees, including the Department Council and Public Funds for Higher Education. For some of these bodies, you have to be elected by the students at the university elections, and to others you can also be sent as a delegate directly.
If you want to contribute by representing the students’ interests in the department or want to get a deeper understanding of the decision-making processes at the university, this may be the right activity for you!
More information on university politics can be found on the University Politics webpage.
Since Garching unfortunately does not offer too many things to do for student recreation, which is why the city has gotten the affectionate nickname Garchosibirsk some time ago, we try to bring the campus to life at least now and then with our own events.
That’s a lot of work, which of course doesn’t handle itself. Starting with the planning and organization of the event, including all kinds of formalities and operation of the booths on the evening of the event, there are many things that need to get done.
If you wish to help us with that or even have your own idea for a new great event, we look forward to your support!
Why you should get involved in the Student Council
Since you will get neither credits nor money for working with us, of course the question arises what would be the benefit of you joining.
First of all, we have to say that the work for the many services that we offer to students and work in the various committees does not get done by itself. They will only exist in the future, if we always find new people who want to contribute to it.
Since you probably have already benefited knowingly or unknowingly in your study program from the work of the Student Council, this is a good chance to return the favor and do something for your fellow students. You can also take responsibility for things and gain practical experience that your study program will not offer you.
Above all, it is a lot of fun to be an active member of the Student Council! This is partly due to the great atmosphere in our team and the many exciting experiences that you probably would not get anywhere else like that. Have you ever tried to see whether you can win a soccer table match with a 6 bar compressed air nozzle or placed a steak on the grill right behind the faculty building after you finished your work? Or did you ever want to see how the first-years on the Study Introduction Days Trip wake up to the harmonic sounds of a melodic death metal band at a comfortable volume level?
Since you may have become curious, we will tell you in the next section how you can join us.
