Studentenmission in Deutschland Erlangen [SMD Erlangen]
The SMD Erlangen is a Christian university group and as such we want to be a contact point and meeting place for all students at the university who are interested in the Christian faith and thereby bring them into conversation in the context of the university. For example, we ask how faith and science can be reconciled in lecture hall lectures with expert speakers or discussion groups. In general, our meetings deal with topics of faith, life and studies. We also organise joint activities such as leisure activities, excursions or celebrations.
