Corps Austria is a member of the largest fraternal organization of Corps from Bad Kösen and Weinheim, which form the elite amongst student fraternities. Corps are the world’s oldest form of fraternity, and the only ones without national, religious or similar orientation or principles. They accept only male members and engage in academic fencing. Some of the most influential fraternity members who shaped the economy as well as society have come from and continue to come from within our circle. Corps expect the highest standards from their members, especially concerning personal stength and enagement. Finally, based on their fundamentals, Corps are capable of building new bridges.
Corps impose the highest standards upon their members
We appreciate our community of diverse nationalities, ideologies, religions, and academic pursuits. As the only Corps in Germany’s largest metropolitan region, we combine big city living with student traditions in a sophisticated interpretation of fraternity life.
