What did students do at this statue?

Ragging or hazing

The Dom Square has frequently been the site of ragging and hazing rituals by the student unions.


A special connection with the statue: 'tickling' John of Nassau.

And other boisterousness...

But it was not always just for the fun of it

Sometimes students had more serious reasons to gather around the statue. Like here on 14 December 1994 when students were protesting against cutbacks and a rise of tuition fees.
