Minister for Science opens MISU Sommerfest

Munich, 08/07/2012

On Monday last LMU held its annual reception for the students of the Munich International Summer University (MISU). The Bavarian Minister for Science, Dr. Wolfgang Heubisch, was on hand to welcome the international guests.

The only spoilsport was the weather – to begin with, it rained cats and dogs. However, the MISU students refused to be put off and were determined to enjoy themselves. Even Dr. Heubisch was infected by their high spirits, and cracked jokes about the weather. And he also reminded the party guests to be sure not to miss the many attractions that Munich has to offer during their stay in the city.

This year’s International Summer University is the fifth to be held at LMU. As before, during the summer months, some 500 students from 80 countries will visit LMU to take part in the various Summer Academies on offer. This time around, the program lists subjects ranging from Electronic Media to Environmental Sciences to Nanoscience, and covers the whole gamut from Natural Sciences via Social Sciences to the Humanities. The students also have a varied spectrum of sporting and leisure activities on their agendas, including excursions to Berlin or Salzburg, exhibitions and visits to the opera.
