Join us on Thursday, September 12 for our annual Back to School event. We’ll have games set up in the Cambridge Public Library’s park, right across the street from our swissnex Boston location. Alumni Chapters, Swiss social groups, and friends face off against each other and compete in five disciplines before enjoying refreshments, introductions and networking in our space.

You can find a tentative list below:

  • Jenga
  • Ping Pong Double
  • Croquet
  • Corn Hole
  • Sudoku

At registration, you will be asked to pick, create, or be assigned to a team, or if you prefer, you may attend the event without participating in the games. You will meet your team members at the event and collectively decide who will compete in which discipline.

Following the games, we’ll have a brief awards ceremony with prizes for the top teams, a quick introduction to the swissnex team and the opportunity to learn more about the various alumni chapters and social organizations in the area.

The goal is to introduce and reconnect alumni (and current students) of Swiss universities, researchers and professionals with ties to Switzerland who are new to the Boston area with Swiss Alumni chapters and social groups. And also to provide the local Swiss community with a chance to reconnect after the summer holidays. Participating organizations include:

  • ETH Alumni New England Chapter
  • IHEID Boston Chapter
  • UniZurich Alumni and Friends
  • HSG Alumni Boston
  • SwissLink Boston
  • EPFL Alumni US East Coast
  • Friends of Switzerland, Inc (FOSI)
  • More to be announced!
