Mission of University Sports

Sports classes at Magdeburg Otto-von-Guericke University and Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences cover sport in all its organisational forms. Our classes and offers are designed for all members affiliated to the academic institutions mentioned above.  
 
The core of university sports is physical education of our students. As an integral part of studies, physical education is optional. On basis of a large variety of activities, doing sports at university is diverse, free from pressure to perform, and supports the possibility to socialise.  
 
Taking into consideration aspects of age, ability, and interest, it is our utmost mission to offer our academic affiliates the possibility of doing sports, and thereby contributing to their well-being.

As the development of mind is inseparably connected to the development of physical endurance, strength, coordination and flexibility, the offer of university sports is designed according the motto "mens sana in corpore sano". However, our lifestyle has changed significantly during the past years, and is effected by onesided stress (e.g. desk work), as well as by pressure to perform and deadline pressure. Who has not ever suffered from the ubiquitious stress and resulting exhaustion? By offering diversified sports activities we would like to counter these problems. All students and staff of Magdeburg Otto-von-Guericke University and Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences are more than welcome to get fit for everyday's life and do something good for their body and mind with professional guidance.
