The Alumni Network Viadrin@lumni is by no means first interesting after graduation. To the contrary, we have made it our priority to promote dialog and networking between current students and Viadrina alumni.
We are the Amnesty International University Group at Viadrina. We participate in campaigns and actions within the framework of Amnesty International - the world's largest human rights organization - and also organize our own human rights events. Everyone is welcome, no prior legal knowledge or the like is required.

The Christian Student Fellowship is a group of Christians, mainly Viadrina students or alumni, from different nations and denominations. What unites us is our desire to learn more about God.

In the winter of 2005, the Unicef University Group formed in response to the catastrophic tsunami. Since our founding, we work to collect donations and to make the public aware of children‘s' problems, and we work closely with the Frankfurt (Oder) Unicef chapter. By means of a benefit concert, athletic events and projects in local schools, we successfully collected funds for Roma children in S.E. Europe; our most well-known project is most definitely the run/walk for charity, which was recently held on the island of Ziegenwerder for this cause. Our primary task is the formation and implementation of charitable donation campaigns. We look forward to working with interested individuals. Here is our contact information:

ViaFrankfurt is actively involved as a university group at the European University Viadrina. Our work focuses on the politically occupied committees at the university, such as the student parliament. Here we stand up for a strong political center and actively fight against extreme right-wing as well as extreme left-wing positions. We see the key to a lively and diverse university in the many initiatives at the university. These are the heart of our Viadrina and their support is an essential concern for us. ViaFrankfurt is therefore the real representation of the initiatives in the political bodies. Furthermore, we would like to actively improve Frankfurt's location factor and see the university as a central point for this.
Viamag is the student magazine of Viadrina University. On the self-run blog and on social media, articles on politics, feminism and news from Frankfurt (Oder) are published. Anyone who is interested in writing is welcome to participate!
ViaMUN is Viadrina's Model UN group. We have made it our goal to impart the students and citizens of Frankfurt (Oder) with a differentiated view of the United Nations. To achieve this goal, we organize events including the annual "Viadrina Model United Nations", in which we simulate the work of UN committees in a type of mock convention.
The University Orchestra "Viaphoniker" is always looking for instrumental support (pun intended!). Rehearsals are held once weekly during the semester.
