If you are starting an application-oriented course of study at the Hochschule Kaiserslautern, you will surely have a lot of questions. The organizational matters are clarified within the first few days or weeks, but can still cause some confusion. The programme is specially adressed for female students in fields of study where womens are underrepresented. The programme "Check In" is the first of its kind.
Mentors who are further along in their studies can help with this. If you are also looking to exchange ideas and network with other STEM students across all of the campuses, then mentoring first-year students will be perfect for you. On the one hand, mentoring provides an insight into the structural aspects of studying: Study planning, classification of faculty and university structures, task planning, and time planning. On the other hand, it also gives you the chance to network and to participate in group activities and personality training.
