Student products

There are a lot of unique products for student life at both polytechnics and universities. Below you can read a little more about the various products.

The student overall is something that is mainly used at student parties. Usually, it is university and polytechnic students who use overalls. Often it is an easy choice to put on the overall at various student events – it protects the clothes from getting dirty and you don’t have to spend any time choosing an outfit.

The student overall is the best way to recognize your fellow students. In fact, the overalls can be considered a factor that brings all students together. Overalls are usually worn during silliz, student parties, and other fun events. You can buy your own overall from your student association, they will also be able to respond to all questions regarding overalls.

On the overalls, students often collect fabric patches, or overall patches, in memory of various events and other students they met there and exchanged patches with. The color of the overall and the logo of the educational institution or association on the back reveal where and what subject the person is studying. There are a whole host of myths and traditions surrounding the student overalls, for example that the overall must never be washed unless the owner wears it and so on. In some circles, part of the overall trouser leg is exchanged with their partner.

The overall is then decorated with fabric patches, so-called overall patches that you get in connection with sitzes and various events you participate in. You can also buy different patches from the student union or the student associations.

If you want, you can buy a songbook from your student association which you then take with you to sitzes. You can also bring a pen so that your table mates can write a little greeting for you. But do not worry if you do not have a songbook, on most sitzes song sheets are also handed out so you can easily sing along anyway!

Couleur are the ribbons worn by the members of various student associations, for example nations, faculty associations or student unions. The ribbon is often used with the association’s insignia and medals.

For a dress suit, the ribbon is worn diagonally across the shirt chest or folded over the lapel for a suit jacket. For a dress, it is worn in a bow. Rules about how many ribbons may be worn and which ones vary between different universities. Usually, up to three different bands are allowed, which are worn mainly at annual parties. All regular ASK members, former ASK members and the student union’s honorary members have the right to wear the ASK couleur.

Couleur comes from French, meaning colour in English.
