A new group of students from Qingdao arrived in Paderborn a few days ago – just in time for the new DSH courses starting in the winter semester 2015/16. Thanks to the dedicated support of the „Association of Chinese students“, the new arrivals mastered not only the marathon through various offices and agencies, starting at the city administration to the bank and finally their registration at the university. Despite the tight situation regarding student apartments, experienced fellow students managed to organize a room in Paderborn for each one of the new students. Following a formal welcome by Dr. Josef Noeke, Karina Rohlfing and Lin Jian provided the new students with important information about studying and living in Paderborn. During the following tour of the city and a quiz, the group learned about the history of the peacock and the holy Liborius.
