Fun Day is back!

On September 23, 2023, after a 5-year hiatus, we were delighted to welcome the JFKS community back to our campus for Fun Day.

Classes, departments, activities, and clubs provided food, drinks, games and more! All proceeds went to the booth providers and the Verein!  A special thank you to the Music department for organizing the entertainment program in the café. And a HUGE thank you to all the Verein volunteers for organizing this great event!

Our JFKS Alumni booth reported that the Class of ’94/Abi ’95 was the most represented class at FUN DAY.
