After months of uncertainty and lengthy negotiations with the VGN on the subject of the Deutschlandticket as a semester ticket and regular updates, the Semesterticket working group can finally report concrete results. As of May, the additional ticket will be “convertible” into a Deutschlandticket free of charge, which will be accompanied by some changes in the availability of the ticket. You can read more about this in the article on the Semesterticket.

The Rudolf Wöhrl Auditorium at the FAU Medical Faculty is currently in the news because of the discovery that Rudolf Wöhrl joined the NSDAP and the SS early on. The student representation is of the opinion that it is unacceptable for an auditorium to be named in this way and that a renaming is required. The FSV Med is currently collecting suggestions for a new name for the lecture hall. If you have ideas of your own, you can find more info about this in their Instagram post and submit your suggestions here.

During exam week, campo was, unfortunately, undergoing maintenance/updates. While we welcome improvements to the platform, this should not be happening during exam periods and especially on weekdays, as a lot of exam-related information and exam cancellations go through campo, some of which require several working days’ notice. We have already contacted the university about this and asked if it would be possible to avoid updates during this time in the future – unfortunately with limited success. Speaking of the future and exams, we are also in contact with the university regarding AI (specifically chatbots like ChatGPT) in teaching at the university.
