The begin of study is the begin of a new period of life. Many freshmen at a university experience a time of dramatic changes like a new habitation, a new circle of friends, a new way of life, a new level of responsibility for the own life a new kind of learning, as well as a sometimes unfamiliar circadian rhythm. FreshUP addresses these challenges with an interactive online game to become familiar with the new university and the new city. In addition, players may work in teams to solve the FreshUP game tasks and get to know  their fellow students.
