I. First day of Classes
You can find the course schedule on the website at this link. For this coming week, we have arranged for one of the PAs to take you to class:
Lunch near Canisius Kolleg
The general public is welcome to grab lunch on the 4th floor of the Nordic Embassies housed in the sea-foam green building located at the corner where the 100/200 busses drops off. Their cantina is open to the general public beginning at 1pm. This may be particularly attractive for students in Prof. Boes' class who have class back-to-back on Thursday with Prof. Della Rossa.

III. Travel Registry (Action Required)
On free weekends when we don’t have program excursions, you are free to travel to other German and European cities. However, you are required to submit your travel plans, so that in case of an emergency, we know where you are. Please submit your travel plans by this coming Wednesday at this link. If you plan on staying in Berlin during our free weekends, please still submit the form and enter “Staying in Berlin.”
IV. Apartment Cleaning Schedule
All apartments will be cleaned once a week, and at that time your towels and linen will also be changed. It is important that you remove all personal belongings from your bed, and that you take out all trash and pick up the apartment the night before. They cannot clean if the apartment is full of clutter.
Thursday: Granados, Rodrigo, Mompou
The first cleaning is this coming week.
V. Upcoming event
We have an exciting event this week. There will also be some mini excursions, which the PAs will announce in a
1. Visit to Reichstag (German Parliament Building)
An amazing behind-the-scenes tour of the German parliament building. Something you don’t want to miss.
Date: Wednesday, May 29
Meeting Time: 5:15 pm
Meeting Place: Outside apartments
Tour starts: 6:30 pm
N.B.: If you have a language class at Canisius Kolleg, please take the 100 bus directly to “Reichstag/Bundestag,” since that is only a couple stops from the school. You will meet the group there rather than going back to the apartments.
IMPORTANT: You must bring your passport. You will not be able to clear security without it.
On this site, we will be posting weekly announcements with important information regarding program events of the respective week.
