Full house at the Audimax:

Professor Schäfer, aka actor Dieter Mann, welcomes first-semester students of Mathematical Economics. What seems like the normal start of a lecture is really the shooting of the film “13 Semesters”, later to be showered with accolades. For several weeks, a renowned production team and famous actors populated the “set”, filming the student comedy on the TU Darmstadt campus. About 1,400 students appear in the film as extras.
