Anniversary Party – 30 Years PIM &CEMS Club

2015 – The PIM&CEMS Club proudly celebrates its 30th anniversary this year. The official celebration of the anniversary took place in the afternoon of Friday, 13th of June: the club had invited former board members and other alumni of the past years to take a boat ride on the Rhine on the PureLiner. As the PIM&CEMS clubs’ donation of this year is addressed to the non-profit organization CARE, they offered some insights on their operative work to support refugees, which was followed by a poetry slam with popular poets from Cologne. Afterwards, our guests enjoyed the boat trip along the skyline of Cologne while having dinner and catching up with old friends from university. Afterwards, the venue was opened for students and company representatives who were invited to join the PIM&CEMS summer party. Themed ‘Venetian carnival’, the summer party on the PureLiner hosted more than 600 guests who celebrated the 30th anniversary until the sun rose again over the Rhine.

Human Kicker Cup 2015

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary the PIM & CEMS Club organized a Human Kicker Tournament on campus - the sporty fun Highlight of the year! Besides the fun factor, the event aimed at collecting money for Nepal through revenues and sponsorships. So, on Thursday 11 June 2015 with 30 degrees and sunshine 14 teams fought passionately for glory, honor and a trip to Paris! All participants and spectators enjoyed chilled Kölsch and a BBQ, the DJ's from Reinecke Fuchs created a great atmosphere with chilled electro beats till long after the end of the tournament. All in all our event was successful: 200 participants had a lot of fun and sponsorships and flourishing Kölsch and Bratwurst Sales enabled us to collect 1400 Euros for Nepal.

Rotation Dinner 2015

Once again, we organized our well known Rotation Dinner this summer.

While enjoying an exquisite dinner, they were able to get in touch with L'Oréal, KPMG and McKinsey all in one evening. The very interesting companies, the great location and the relaxed atmosphere is what has made, and makes the Rotation Dinner one of our most popular events in the year.
