What did you learn at ZU that is useful to you in your everyday work today?

"...Now, I have to say at the outset that my everyday work is currently sociological research; I'm currently sitting on the completion of my dissertation.
But in this sense:

Always read the original and don't let up, even if it gets tough.
Seek personal contact and ask questions.
Don't be afraid of titles - even professors are learners and seek an exchange.
The arts provide important methods and approaches to observing and questioning society.
Studying an extra semester never hurt anyone."

When I look back on my ZU days today...

"...I see a university under construction whose strength was definitely in improvisation. I was one of the first Master's students and there were seminars that we could hold in the lecturers' offices because of the small group size. That was a coffee round and intensive workshop in one, and you learned just as much from your fellow students. Today, the structures are certainly a bit more 'established', ZU is now also a real "university" ;-) Nevertheless, I hope that a piece of this improvisational culture has remained at ZU, even at the new campus!"
