The “Arbeitskreis Ausländische Studierende (AKAS)” in English Working Group Foreign Students is a group of foreign and German students of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. We are an initative of the Student Council, the DAAD-supported Local Erasmus + Initiative (LEI) and cooperate closely with the International University Center Alexander von Humboldt. For our fellow students, we see ourselves as contact persons.
We would like to promote the integration of foreign students at the university as well as the exchange between foreign and German students. One focus of our work is the cultural support of foreign students. We do organize various events, such as the Festival of Cultures, Excursions and much more. Foreign students can make an active contribution by presenting their home countries, their culture or the history of their country during the International Corner or International Evenings. Of course German students are also welcome to participate and organize events together with us or simply make new contacts.
WG Big Band – Wood’n‘Brass
Where we are there is music, and where there is music there we are.
In our Big Band we play many diverse genres of music. If you are looking for classic Jazz, Funk, Soul or Rock, you are at the right place!
Since 2015 the Wood’n’Brass Big Band gives a home to all musicians, who are willing to play in a group. Generally we are cast as a classic big band in the style of the 30s and 40s. Whether trombone, trumpet, saxophone or guitar, big band experience or not, we are always in search of new members.
We rehearse every Wednesday 7.30 pm at the Lessingbau (E014). If you are interested in joining us, or booking us for an event, please contact us. Of course you can also just come to our rehearsal.
We will be happy to hear (from) you!
Drachenhort | DnD, board games and much more!
The Drachenhort is the role-playing and board game club of the Stura Freiberg. But the thing is much less bureaucratic and stiff than it sounds. We also see ourselves less as a working group but as a community.
The Drachenhort has been existing since the winter term 2000/2001 and since then we try to offer a platform to all fans of unusual parlor games. We want to give the old chaps the opportunity to find new players in Freiberg as well as to introduce newcomers to the different game systems. The one or the other enthusiastic Drachenhort member has already found a new hobby and of course new friends this way. The AG Drachenhort meets weekly on Tuesdays and Fridays at 7pm in the Barbarakeller in Nonnengasse 22.

Ensiferra ad Freiberg | Middle Age Enthusiasts
Hail thee, fellow Medieval Enthusiasts!

We are an open-minded company of knights, vikings, and warriors from other cultures, dedicated to historical life. Our focus is historically correct fighting with sword, axe and shield. However, we like to revive camp life including medieval cuisine and handicrafts, as well. You′re rather interested in music and jugglery? We may be Your platform for that, too! We look forward to make the Middle Ages come back to life in any manner.
Did we catch You? Just join us!
You may find us each Monday, 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., in the student house “Alte Mensa”, ground floor.
The only basic requirement for participation is Your interest in the european Middle Ages, nothing more. For fencing training however, basic protection consisting of long pants, sturdy shoes and padded gloves is mandatory.
AG Feminismus 30/70 | Feminism
Feminism 30/70 is a committed group of people, living and studying in Freiberg, that tries to make visible the gender inequality we face nowadays. In order to do that, we organize monthly presentations or meetings (since May 2018) focussing on specific aspects of sexism, which negatively affect women and men on daily basis. Our activities are open to the public and we hope to affect as many people as possible.
We invite you all to join our group or join us in our activities.
AG Grubenwehr | Mine rescue team
In general, the mine rescue team is the combination of fire and rescue services in mining industries. This voluntary association of members receives special training to be able to respond to various scenarios. The mine rescue team is called when special events occur that can only be resolved with special equipment or experience. These include events such as finding missing persons, an underground fire, or providing care to injured persons. The aim of the AG Grubenwehr is to further educate ourselves in the field of rescue and to get to know the procedure in extreme situations at every level. For this purpose, we want to study and practice in different fields such as the basics of first aid, how to proceed in movement patterns, rescue scenarios underground or staff work and experience them for ourselves in exercises. At the same time, we want to create an exchange between semesters, courses of study and faculties, which also grows together through joint sports activities. We want to create an understanding of the procedures and processes that many students are confronted with in the raw materials industry. In addition, we want to represent the connection to mining and the miners. There are no requirements regarding semester, degree program or gender. However, one must have the ability to work in a team, be reliable and also enjoy sports and exertion. If you are interested and have any questions, we will be happy to help. With a thunderous “Glück Auf!” The AG Grubenwehr.
MAKI – WG (Manga Anime and Japanese Culture Club)
MAKI-WG offers a forum for anime, manga, and Japanese culture enthusiasts and those who aspire to be one. Since its founding in 2014, the club has met every Wednesday to discuss the latest episodes, news and other topics in a cozy atmosphere.
The meeting starts at 20:00 in Barbarakeller, Nonnengasse 22. There are regular presentations to give the members a deeper insight into anime or Japanese culture related topics. We play games like Mahjong, Shogi, Go, and western games alike, but we also appreciate new game suggestions.
Our club travels to the Leipziger Buchmesse as an annual event and occasionally to other conventions in the vicinity. We always enjoy meeting new people!If we sparked your interest, we invite you to be our guest
AG Umwelt | Environmental Activists
An environmentally oriented university – that is the goal of the AG Umwelt. Our projects are based on a broad range of topics, including energy, raw materials/resources, food and nature. The “nature” of the events are correspondingly colorful. These include, for example, action days, lectures,
excursions and work assignments. The work of the Umwelt AG is enriched by cooperation with region
al associations and companies. Does all this seem too serious to you? Far from it – we also have a lot of fun. One example of this is the freshman weekend at the beginning
of each winter semester. You are interested in en
vironmental topics, you have ideas and suggestions and you want to have fun implementing projects? Then we would like to invite you to join the Umwelt AG.
When: every Wednesday 6 p.m.
Where: BBB (Link: https://teach.informatik.tu-freiberg.de/b/bal-tjx-xqm-fu6)
AG QueErz | LGBTQ+ Community
We are the LGBT*QIA+ group of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. We want to expand the queer range and be a contact point for students.
Do you want to socialize and engage for the LGBT*QIA+ community? Are you interested in presentations, discussions and critical events all about queer issues?
Our goal is to create a safe and discrimination-free area, where you can comfortably sit together, but also get easily
informed. For more information write to us via mail or instagram.
We are looking forward to meeting you!
Telegram group: https://t.me/joinchat/DpTqmkpeV3KKrQ2zt1yc6A
VocaVox is a student vocal group dedicated entirely to a cappella singing. Founded in April 2012 as a small ensemble, our membership has grown quite a lot. Our repertoire includes 4- to 6-part sets of pieces from a wide variety of styles. Thus, in addition to classical works and church choral literature, we also sing folk songs, pop songs, vocal pop pieces, and original arrangements of titles that we like. In our rehearsals, which take place once a week in the Alte Mensa, we not only rehearse and practice seriously, but also have a lot of fun. We have already demonstrated our skills on various occasions, including the Student Days, the Bergstadt Festival and our joint Christmas concert with Jazz2Go. We can be reached by e-mail at
firstname.lastname@example.org or via our
Facebook page www.facebook.de/vocavox at any time.
