Freshers’ Week During Freshers’ Week, new students address a current social challenge and become familiar with campus life and their fellow students. Each year, the Freshers’ Week welcomes all new students and engages them immediately in challenging global issues. In 2015, 1,400 new students worked in groups and dealt with the topic “Outlook Switzerland – risks and opportunities”. In 2016, the new students worked on the interdisciplinary, challenging and complex topic „Swiss retirement provision risks – a campaign challenge“. In this challenge, they created a campaign for 18-25-year-olds to raise awareness of providing for retirement. Keynote presentations and background information supplemented the work, which the presenting partner Helvetia Insurance Company supported.
