The students' initiative Gemini offers different activities for exchange students at Pforzheim University.
One of these activities is the buddy program which matches one german and one international student. The german student is there to help the exchange student with his/her first steps in Germany and Pforzheim (search for accommodation, pick-up from the station, buying a SIM card and so on...) and to support him with all kinds of problems and questions throughout the semester. Naturally personal contact and shared free-time activities are a welcome side effect.
