When we promise you something, it breeds hope. If we can keep our promise, your trust in us grows. After two years of this Corona marathon, we are again at the beginning of a semester. Have we finally made it through, we ask ourselves. Can we promise you that we will be able to finish the spring semester with face-to-face classes and additional digital offerings? We share your hope and are doing everything we can to keep our promise and build your confidence.
