ESPACE Christmas party
The ESPACE Christmas party held every year gives students and faculty a chance to take a break from a tough semester and share stories over traditional German "Glühwein" (hot spiced wine) and Christmas cookies. This year was no different, and all guests enjoyed viewing the "homeland" pictures that some first semester students brought to share.

ESPACE Annual Excursion to the Geodetic Observatory in Wettzell, the Bavarian Forest
Each year, the first semester students go for a two days excursion to the Bavarian Forest. Seminars are organized as well as a guided tour to the Geodetic Observatory in Wettzell. It is also a good opportunity for the first semester students to get to know each other better.

Annual ESPACE International Food Festival 2012
On Thursday, April 12, ESPACE held its 4th annual International Food Festival. The get-together gives ESPACE students a chance to mingle outside the classroom and share a part of their home country by brining a dish native to their homeland. This year, food and drinks were brought from countries as diverse as Kasakstan, the USA, Colombia, Panama, Germany, Russia, Austria, and Turkey. The food was delicious and a good time was had by all (see pictures below).

Say cheese! Students enjoyed a chance to spend time together at the well deserved semester break get-together.
