Upcoming Events

After the success of the Bamberg Buddies program—a special German-American-Canadian student program—over the last ten years, we are very excited to start the summer term 2023 with new events. The idea of these events is to bring those of you interested in cultural exchange together with our university’s incoming North American exchange students, who are very happy to meet their peers from Bamberg.

Bamberg Buddies Barbecue

In July, the Bamberg Buddies will come together for the annual Bamberg Buddies Barbecue – take this opportunity and join us!

The idea is to help our American and Canadian students to feel even more at home here, and to make new friends.

This year, we would like to celebrate Independence Day with a great barbecue. On Tuesday, July 4th, at 5 p.m. we will meet at Jahnwiese for a fun barbecue – potluck – picnic evening. The idea is that everyone will contribute something to our barbecue:

  • we bring the grill – you bring your own meat/ alternative barbecue fare (because tastes are different)
  • we bring barbecue sauces, bread, beer and water – you bring sides, salads, desserts, and other drinks (because we like diversity)
  • we bring games – you bring your own cups and plates (because we care about the environment)

In order to help us calculate, please sign up on our foodlist and send an email to bambergbuddies.amerikanistik(at)uni-bamberg.de.

We will organize an alternative venue in case it rains. Please check our website and Facebook for updates.

The American Studies Team and the Team of the Englische Sprachpraxis are looking forward to seeing you all on July 4th!
