Ilmenau is what you make of it - this slogan is almost legendary at the university. Indeed: the clubs, specialist initiatives and committees at the TU offer an almost inexhaustible range of ways to get involved alongside your studies or to pursue your own interests. UNIonline asked students on campus what they have found for themselves.

I was already involved in a few clubs during my time in Ilmenau and joined the bc café in my last semester to help out at the bar. Working at the café is a great balance for me besides my bachelor thesis. You spend a lot of time with nice people and it's very uncomplicated. We also plan cool events outside of the café's opening hours together with the other clubs. One of the highlights for the café in the summer semester is the DJ Café, which happens outside some days when the weather is good. Since this semester will be my last summer in Ilmenau, I'm especially looking forward to spending some quality time with all my friends from the café.
