The student initiative “Internationaler Kreis der Carl Friedrich Gauß Freunde e.V.” (Gauss Friends) was founded in 2008 and was initially characterized by the passion of the students for mathematics and the enthusiasm for the genius Johann Carl Friedrich Gauss.

But soon, a new interpretation of the famous mathematician, astronomer, geodesist and physicist from Braunschweig took place: as a symbol of the sciences, and not only as a mathematician but also as a linguistic genius Gauss represents the cultural unification of science. As the “host of science”  Gauss brings together international students and the citizens of Brunschweig at the Gauss House.

Through the cultural diversity of “Gauss Friends” represented in its team, the resulting intercultural competences, for example through the different languages ​​and cultures, can create an interaction that promotes an open-mindedness towards foreign cultures in a friendly atmosphere.

Various activities at the intercultural meeting place “Gauss House” (Güldenstr 8, 38100 Braunschweig), such as international country evenings, plays, excursions, language “Stammtische” and cooking workshops, help to build an international bridge between culture and science.

The motto is: We do not have to understand everything, but we all can have fun together.
