ESN Bern consists of around 30 volunteers, who try to make the stay of the incoming students in the canton of Bern as unforgettable as possible. We offer a variety of services, such as a buddy system, many different cultural events, adventurous trips, parties and the language exchange project "Kafejo de Lingvoj". These activities should help exchange students to get to know the universities better as well as the city of Berne, the whole country of Switzerland and last but not least to get in touch with locals. ESN Bern unites the University, the University of Applied Sciences and the College of Education of Bern.
We are directly subventionned by the Bernese institutions of higher education. ESN Bern collaborates with different companies. They provide us financial and material support, so we can offer affordable events for incoming student.
The current board consists of three members: Stefanie Zehnder (Co-president), Barbara Germann (Co-president, LR) and Amanda Züllig (treasurer).
