First HAUS Philadelphia Chapter Gathering

You are invited!
Universität Heidelberg is looking for former students, exchange students, professors, researchers and friends to build its American HAUS (Heidelberg Alumni U.S.). After forming the national Alumni organization, we are now starting Regional Chapters in different areas of the country.
Whether you spent a semester, a year or even graduated at Universität Heidelberg, you are invited. All friends of Heidelberg are also welcome at the very first official gathering of the Heidelberg Alumni U.S. (HAUS) Philadelphia Chapter on Saturday, March 13, 2010. Some very active Alumni from Philadelphia planed an interesting and fun day.

We will meet at 10 AM at The Barnes Foundation (300 North Latch's Lane, Merion, PA 19066-1729),
one of the finest collections of nineteenth and twentieth-century French painting in the world.

Followed by a no-host lunch and the opportunity to talk, catch up and network at
1 PM at City Tavern in Old Philadelphia (138 South 2nd Street @Walnut Street)
and a tour of Philadelphia from 3-5 PM.

This will be a joint event with the HAUS New York Metropolitan Chapter.
You will get the very latest news about Universität Heidelberg and you will have the chance to network or reconnect with other former Heidelbergers from the Philadelphia and New York Metropolitan area. We will discuss the upcoming 625th anniversary of the university in 2011. And most of all, we look forward to hearing YOUR ideas for the HAUS Philadelphia Regional Chapter!

Please buy your ticket for the Barnes Foundation for the March 13, 2010, 10 AM time slot at or by phone: 610.667.0290 as soon as possible. Please feel free to join us just for lunch and/or the tour of Philadelphia if you would like to pass on the museum.
Please R.S.V.P by Monday, March 8, 2010 to
and please indicate which parts of the agenda you would like to participate in.

We realize that for some of you Philadelphia might not be exactly in your neighborhood. But we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about the closest Regional Chapter and encourage you to stay in touch and give us your e-mail information. We love to hear from you at For more information on HAUS please go to
