Welcome to the Alumni-Network!
Friedensau Adventist University feels a particularly strong connection with its former students, who have shared in and helped to shape the history of Friedensau. So keeping in touch with alumni and hearing about their experiences is very important to us, and the alumni network helps us to do this. The aim is to maintain the connection that alumni have with each other and with the university – for a lifetime.
To stay in touch with us in the future, you have different possibilities:
- Facebook: Alumni Friedensau
- ThHF homepage/Alumni
- Further usage of your e-mail account for the next 6 months
With leaving the university, you automatically become a member of the alumni network. That means you will receive news from us on a regular basis.
Do you know our yearbook series? After a longer break, we published two yearbooks – one for the academic year of 2014/15 and the other one for 2015/16. On approximately 100 pages you can get an impression of the highlights of the academic year by many pictures und short texts. Even if you could not take part at the graduation weekend, the weekly „Meeting under the Word“, the music events and weeks of reflection, in the StuZ – take the opportunity to have a look on these familiar places and events in our yearbook as our alumni. The only thing you need to do, is to tell us your recent mailing address or the changes of your address. Then you will receive the yearbook at a special price – unfortunately not for free. It will cost including postage only 6,50 EUR.
Therefore, remember: every year a yearbook of Friedensau Adventist University at a special price incl. postage.
You may know the class reunions of primary school or highschool. You want to meet your friends. Therefore, it is good if not a single class is meeting but also those of the former years or those who joined the university after you. We organize meetings for our alumni and we will invite you on time. You can already mark a date in your calendar: probably beginning of June 2018 we will have an alumni meeting here in Friedensau.
So remember June 2018 in your calendar.
Use of the document shipping service of the library for free
What does document delivery service mean? Medias which cannot be borrowed like e. g. magazines will be sent in excerpts as a copy. How does it function? (1) Choose a medium out of the catalogue of the library (https://vzlbs3.gbv.de/DB=11/), (2) send your request including the shelfmark via e-mail to ">. Condition for this service is the membership in our library – for you as our alumni absolutely no problem. Normally, charges will be raised for the delivery (up to 9,50 EUR)– it does not matter if the document is sent by e-mail or by postal service – further charges for the postal service will be raised additionally. For our alumni this service is for free up to 20 copies (every new copy in the A4-format will cost 0,15 EUR) but there is one exception: we will charge the postal service and the packaging costs of medias in compact shape (e.g. books).
Discount 50 % for books ordered at the ThHF-Bücherwaage via Amazon
What does it mean for you? If someone indicates that he/she is a member of our alumni network during the process of buying at the library‘s Amazon-Shop „Bücherwaage“, we will check it first. As soon as we have the confirmation, the customer gets a discount of 50% on the price, the flat shipping rate remains the same. It is a procedure which is also for customers who are registered students of our university. The amazon shop which is operated by the university’s library offers medias of many different genres: christian literature, adventist books, general topics, illustrated books, novels, children’s books, guidebooks, antiquarian books (E. G. White, Conradi etc.) – just like the motto: used, favourable, valuable.

Every year, on the day of graduation, many pictures are taken. We have a professional photographer who takes pictures with his professional equipment. All alumni of the appropriate year have the opportunity to ask for these photos. If you want to receive the pictures of your graduation, please send an e-mail to ">. We will send you a link within two to three weeks by which you can see and download the pictures.
