Corona Tips


„Corona pandemic“, the word of the year 2020 in Germany – nobody wants to hear it anymore. The situation affects us all and especially young people suffer from the restrictions. That is why we’re working on providing you with information and tips here so that you can survive these times better:

Together with friends

If we cannot be together in person, then we’ll just meet digitally! For example like this:

• Play Monday painters together

• Win in Urban-rural-river

• Guess who is it

• Watch a series together on Netflix

• Watch Youtube & Co at the same time

↑ How about e.g. a try-not-to-laugh challenge?

Draw a picture together

• Let your favorite Pokémon compete against each other

Meet new people

Here are a few digital offers where you can meet new people:

• On the Study’n’Social server over on MatterMost students can chat and videocall each other, make private groups and join weekly events every wednesday from 20 o’clock to 21 o’clock. No registration required!
For April, the event schedule is:

• April 7th: Play „Werewolves“, moderated by Enya and Alex

• April 14th: Game Night with Kim and Hannah; we’ll be playing „Skribbl“ (monday painters) and „Codenames“

• April 28th: Cooking Night with Enya; we’ll make potato chili stew with fried polenta stripes. The recipe will be online in time on the server and on our social media.

• The social counseling of the Studierendenwerk regularly organizes many different events to meet people online

Without boredom

The pandemic has taken many activities from many of us. Without a goal and without a hobby it quickly becomes boring – and we spend the months in front of the TV or in front of Netflix. If you are looking for new occupations or just want to try something new, here are a few suggestions:

• Learn an instrument (for many you can find free tutorials online)

• Try out recipes

• Refresh or expand language skills (for example with the language courses of the AStA, Duolingo or Memrise)

• Read a good book

• Learn handstands

• Try or practice painting and drawing

• Craft something

Learn something new online

• Bild a pillow fort
