Minister President Armin Laschet Member of Alumni Network

As an alumnus of the University of Bonn, Armin Laschet, Minister President, joined the Alumni Network at the opening ceremony of the University’s 200th anniversary year.

In his speech, the Minister President said: “The University of Bonn radiates far beyond the city, the region and the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. It has acquired an excellent international reputation and plays an essential role in science and research. The attractiveness of the University of Bonn is also reflected in its appeal to students and outstanding researchers: the list of alumni reads like a ‘Who’s Who’ of politics, culture and science.”

Minister President Armin Laschet studied law and political science at the Universities of Munich and Bonn and passed his first state law examination in 1987.

Since 2007, the Alumni Network links 15,000 former and current students and employees at the University of Bonn. Through its services and offers and its specialized and regional groups, the Alumni Network provides many opportunities for keeping in touch with the University of Bonn and for networking both at professional and regional level.
