Who are these crazy people?? - We are the fantastic board of ESN Karlsruhe ;)

If you have any questions or problems just contact us via mail, facebook, phone call or just in personal :)




Hey, I’m Cedrik and I study chemical engineering at KIT. For me participating in ESN is like an exchange semester but at your home university. Well, apart from organizing the events yourself :D But seriously, the wonderful people you meet from all around the world and the fantastic memories you make are extraordinary. Whenever I help with an event and speak with the participants who are happy to be there, it’s rewarding. That’s why my drive is to create the opportunity for exchange students to experience a brilliant semester abroad in Karlsruhe. 

Funfact: I can fall asleep in an instant.

Hey, I'm Franzi and I study industrial engineering at KIT. When I came back to Germany from my semester abroad in Tallinn in 2022 I became a member of ESN, organized the O-Phase and then joined the board. After having an incredible Erasmus semester myself (thanks ESN Taltech IC ❤️), I would like to make the same possible for all incomers in Karlsruhe. 

Funfact: I'm (a little) in love with soccer and Formula 1.

Hey! My name is Nena, I studied Computer Science at KIT and I‘m from Iran. 

I started off as the Partnership Manager of ESN Karlsruhe and later founded the Safety Team before joining the Board.

For me, ESN is more than meeting new people and cultures. It‘s helping new students find their place in Karlsruhe, giving them a great time and helping them out when they need it.

Funfact: I love 3D printing/modelling and gaming in my free time.

Hey, my name is Calvin and I’m studying mechanical engineering at the KIT. I’m half German and half French. I spent two years in Metz, as part of an Erasmus and a double degree program. I can’t quite say I was to a foreign country for my Erasmus, thus I look forward to meeting erasmi from all over Europe in Karlsruhe !

Funfact: I sound like Chewbacca when I yawn
