University Politics

Mathematics: Max Reinhardt

Physics: Nadine Nussbaumer

University politics is mostly about standing up for the students opinions and wishes while maintaining contact with the departments. For the former we have the help of our university politics committee, which gets together a couple of times per semester to discuss current/pressing topics. In the VAMP, you can usually find an article explaining the recent developments and our plans for the future.
If you want to stand up for your fellow students and/or you have some ideas that we could implement, don't hesitate to contact us at or come to one of our committee meetings!

Culture (from the Latin cultura 'processing', 'care', 'agriculture') refers in the broadest sense to everything that man himself creates, in contrast to nature that he has not created and not changed. In contrast, Helman refers to culture as a narrower term, namely a system of rules and habits that govern human coexistence and behaviour.
Thus, the department of culture is responsible for simplifying living together during studies. While other departments are there to improve your grades, we sometimes have the opposite effect. But you will have fun at various events during your studies, from foundue to chess tournaments to Halloween parties and the "Käfergrill". We actually have an event for almost everyone, whether you like gastronomic events, skiing or parties, or want to shine in Jass. Read our newsletter regularly to make sure you don't miss anything and if you are super motivated, you can come to culture meetings to plan your own events or to help out with other events. We are happy to see you here and there :)


Leonard Knirsch The board member for IT is responsible for all technical related topics.

The communication department is mostly responsible for the regular distribution of the VMP newsletter (every two weeks by e-mail) and the VMP's online presence, in particular through our Instagram page. (Follow us here) Another important job is advertising the multiple events the VMP has to offer to you. This includes designing posters, which can be seen on multiple channels, like the screens in CAB, the aforementioned Instagram and our own website. Lastly, the communication department looks after the office, keeps it in presentable shape for guests during our office hours.

tl;dr: Communication department is responsible for connecting the VMP board and the VMP members.
