Class of 2020/21

Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg said goodbye to its graduates on 23 October - not in face-to-face attendance due to the Corona pandemic, but with a live stream lasting a good hour. The virtual party offered a mix of talk, music, comedy and personal retrospectives. Guests included university president Hartmut Ihne, the Bonn improvisation theatre "Die Springmäuse" and the band 1st Class Entertainment. The recording is available here.
