Our university is lively and unique, that is what we think! But why is that so? What can graduates of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences tell us about their years of study? How did they live their student lives in Lucerne? And above all: How did they succeed in entering the job market? Find the answers to all these questions in our alumni-portraits.
