In 2011 you - the Alumni of Heidelberg University - had two good reasons to come back to Heidelberg, the romantic heart of Germany: the 625th birthday of your Alma Mater and the 15th anniversary of Heidelberg Alumni International.
From June 24th till June 28th 2011 more than 300 Ruperto Carola Alumni from all over the world met in Heidelberg to celebrate!
Dear Alumni and dear Friends of Heidelberg University,
dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
Ruperto Carola, the oldest university in Germany and your Alma Mater, is celebrating its 625th birthday in 2011. During the Jubiläumsjahr, the University will present its wide spectrum of capacities and simultaneously give impulses for the further development of the University by a manifold range of events.
With the Festwoche in June 2011, members, friends, patrons and alumni from all over the world will celebrate together its University. At the same time, lecturers, assistants and students will provide our guests and Heidelberg's citizens an insight into research and study.
For you - our alumni - we offer a special programme in line of the Festwoche, to which I would like to invite you warmly. With joy and pride, we take 625 years of Ruperto Carola and 15 years of Heidelberg Alumni International as occasion for the Alumni-Jubiläums-Tage 2011. Come back to the Neckar, brush up your memories, meet friends and acquaintances and enjoy the atmosphere of Heidelberg's summer. A manifold and interesting programme is waiting for you.
Be warmly welcomed in Heidelberg!
Prof. Dr. Bernhard Eitel
Rector of Heidelberg University
