The Weinheim Seniors Convent (WSC) is the umbrella organization for corps at technical colleges and universities. The WSC currently has 60 corps at 24 German university locations. The corps in the WSC wear color and stand by the scale. The WSC and its member corps advocate the principle of tolerance. Membership is not tied to a specific nationality, skin color or denomination. Only males are accepted. Around 1,600 students and around 8,000 working academics call themselves Weinheimer Corps students.


The WSC is an association of individual corps as direct members of the umbrella organization. These are grouped together in local senior citizens' conventions at the university town level , which must consist of at least two corps. At university locations with only one corps, this has to join the SC of a neighboring university location. Corps of geographically close, neighboring university locations such as Freiberg and Dresden can also form a joint SC. The following senior citizens' conventions exist in the WSC:

With these structures, the WSC differs from the Kösener Seniors Convents Association (KSCV), which is an association of local SC. In the KSCV, individual corps can also form an SC at a university location. Because of these different structures, the local SCs have a less important role in the WSC than in the KSCV.


The WSC is led by the annually changing suburb. The WSC's SCs take turns performing this task in a fixed order. An on-site corps is then elected within the SC, which takes over the management of the WSC and provides at least the first on-site spokesperson. This is supported by the 2nd and 3rd on-site speakers and the strip conductor as well as by the committees of the WSC and the old men’s association WVAC (see below).

The main tasks of the suburb are the representation of the WSC externally and the management of the association internally. The on-site speakers are required to visit as many SCs as possible during their year in office and to hold the association conference. The organization of fencing seminars, the collection of statistics about the association as well as the bundling of the university policy interests of the SC and the Corps of the WSC are among the tasks of the suburb.

The statutes of the association and the corps belonging to it exclude a general political mandate , so that neither the association, nor the senior citizens ' convention , nor the individual corps comment on political questions in the non-university area. Like the KSCV, the WSC only conducts very cautious public relations work. This is essentially limited to self-presentation for the purpose of recruiting young talent.


In the history of many Weinheim Corps, mergers, relocations and renaming play a major role.

From the foundation to the First World War

Application of the SC zu Freiberg for admission to the WSC (1873)

The association was founded in Frankfurt am Main on April 7, 1863 by ten corps at the TH Karlsruhe ( Franconia , Bavaria , Saxonia , Alemannia ), the TH Hannover ( Saxonia , Teutonia ), TH Stuttgart ( Teutonia , Rhenania ) and the ETH Zurich ( Rhenania ZAB , Helvetia ) as a “General Seniors Convent” (ASC). The name Weinheimer ASC or Weinheimer SC first appeared in 1867. It has been used exclusively since 1875. Weinheim has been the association's meeting place since 1864 . Since then, the annual meeting of the WSC and its sub-organizations has been held here every year on the Ascension weekend. Dissatisfaction with the organization and the desire for an association of the corps alone at the technical universities led to a temporary dissolution of the WSC in 1883. In the following year 1884, however, the association was renewed by the corps at the universities of Stuttgart, Hanover and Braunschweig. The Senior Citizens' Convention in Freiberg and the SC in Clausthal were only resumed in 1902 and 1905. With the accession of the Polytechnic SC at the Technical University of Munich (1912), the SC zu Breslau (WSC) (1920) and the Danzig Senior Citizens' Convention , the collection of the corps at the technical universities in what was then Reich territory was completed. The WSC had become the lobbyist for all corps at these universities and the mining academies.

Weimar Republic

In order to be able to act on a broader basis on the question of the impunity of the scale, the WSC joined the Allgemeine Deutscher Waffenring (ADW) in 1920 . This should bundle the interests of the established connections in a suitable manner. Under the national and greater German impression of the First World War , the General German SC Association was created in 1921 , a special purpose association of the KSCV and WSC. The management switched between Berlin and Munich. A central theme was the efforts of the Rudolstadt Seniors' Convention to expand from veterinary to technical universities. Since the Rudolstadt Treaty of 7./8. October 1922 did not change anything, it was resolved again.

Nazi era

In April 1933, the WSC submitted in a Potsdam confession to the leader of the German liberation struggle and expressed its determination to join “in lockstep with the German nation”. At the 1933 Weinheim conference, the WSC's active and senior gentlemen's association called for a connection with the KSCV. The idea generator was supposedly the spinning room , the old-man-senior-convent Hanover. Under pressure from the DC circuit , the Corps were all associations in the struggle against the National Socialist German Students' League . At the same time, the RSC tried - for decades in the struggle for "academic" recognition - to expand with all its might. Such intentions were alien to the WSC. As agreed in the 1921 agreement, he wanted to limit himself to technical colleges and mining academies .

“While the KSCV kept its identity, the WSC became the catch basin for the Rudolstädter SC and individual corps of the Naumburger SC. Since the general assembly of the WSC had already largely got rid of its rights in 1933, the association was a matter for the association leaders. "

Decided by these (National Socialist) association leaders on March 25, 1934, the association was an "amalgamation of the climbers", namely the corps at the (non-university) technical , veterinary and agricultural colleges and universities of applied sciences . Their spearhead was Hans Heinrich Lammers , a member of the Miltenberger Ring . The incorporation of the 27 Rudolstadt Corps brought the WSC and its senior convents major problems (some of which were not solved until the 1950s). The appearance of Rudolstadt's individual corps at universities also brought conflicts with the KSCV.

It passed

  • pure Weinheimer SC in Karlsruhe, Stuttgart, Braunschweig, Freiberg, Aachen, Danzig and Clausthal
  • SC with WSC and RSC corps in Dresden, Berlin, Munich and Breslau
  • Weinheimer SC with assigned corps in Hanover, Darmstadt and Berlin
  • Rudolstädter SC in Bonn, Halle and Leipzig (each with three corps).

“Now there was a Kösener-Weinheim togetherness not only in Berlin and Munich, but also in Bonn, Cologne (where the Guestphalia belonging to the Bonner SC was located), Halle, Leipzig, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Marburg and Breslau. Although the Central and East German university locations Halle, Leipzig and Breslau ceased to be corps locations after the end of the war, the WSC acquired corps at the Kösener seats in Kiel, Heidelberg and Göttingen as the legacy of the dissolution of 1934/35. The situation was chaotic until 1953 because individual SCs exercised SC rights during the re-establishment and could thus have corps renounced. "

- Herbert Scherer

Finally, the temporary end for the WSC came in the winter semester 1935/36: at an extraordinary meeting of the WSC on October 20, 1935, the resolution of the WSC was resolved. Many corps continued to exist as comradeships in the NSDStB, but from the point of view of the time it was no longer possible to live with students in the future. Because of a formal error in the compulsory dissolution, the WSC was bought again from 1936 to 1938; However, since most of the corps had already been dissolved or were in the process of being dissolved, the work during this "gallows period" was very limited. In 1940 the liquidation of the WVAC was completed.

From World War II to today

In the post-war period in Germany , the WVAC declared its compulsory dissolution from 1938 null and void. As a result, the WSC was revived in 1949 as the umbrella organization of the German corps, especially at technical universities. The first association meeting of the old men’s association WVAC after the Second World War took place from May 18 to 21, 1950. After an initially sought union with the KSCV had failed, the WSC was reconstituted in Weinheim on May 23, 1952. Only at the local level was it possible in one case to promote the unification of the two associations on a permanent basis. In Munich, the Munich Senior Citizens' Convention was formed with 11 corps from the KSCV, 7 corps from the WSC and one corps not belonging to any association. A WSC corps from Munich ( Rheno-Palatia ) had converted from the WSC to the KSCV in anticipation of an imminent Germany-wide unification. Rheno-Palatia is therefore the only Kösener corps whose coat of arms is attached to the gate of the guard castle. The WSC has been linked to the Kösener Seniors Convents Association of Corps at the universities by a cartel agreement since 1955 . As early as 1921 there was a special purpose association with the KSCV. Under the name of the Allgemeine Deutscher SC-Verband, there was cooperation in questions of university policy and in questions of student attitudes towards the corps. In general, there were discussions in many corps after the Second World War about maintaining or abolishing the fencing of lengths. Some saw it as an educational and selection tool worth preserving, others saw it as an outdated relic of a bygone era. Discussions deepened in many corps in the 1960s and resulted in numerous associations, including corps, abolishing fencing. This led to the departure of the Corps Bavaria Karlsruhe , one of the founding corps of the WSC, in 1965 . Despite some disputes - also within the corps themselves - the vast majority of the corps stuck to the scale principle. After the so-called reunification , WSC corps were re-established at four university locations (Dresden, Freiberg, Magdeburg and Greifswald) in the new federal states. The Corps Saxo-Borussia Freiberg was the first WSC corps to be restituted in the new federal states after reunification . In October 2017, together with the bodies of the Kösener Seniors Convents Association, an application was made for inclusion in the nationwide directory of intangible cultural heritage .

Internal association policy

District politics like the Kösener Corps is rather unusual in the WSC.

Friendship cartels


Five-member corner on the Wachenburg (around 1910)

The Fünferbund is the largest association of corps within the WSC and therefore has a special position within the umbrella organization. At the meetings held on the occasion of the WSC conference after the Wachenburg was built between 1913 and 1930, the five-member union had its place on the central panel of the ballroom. The Fünferbund stipulated, among other things, which corps members of the Fünferbundcorps had to associate with when they changed university. The last revised list in 1929 established the following corps: Dresden - Teutonia, Freiberg - Saxo-Borussia, Aachen - Montania, Danzig - Borussia, Clausthal - Borussia, Breslau - Montania, Darmstadt - Rhenania and until 1954 Munich - Rheno-Palatia. After 1980 the traffic lists were no longer drawn up. In the castle tavern of the Wachenburg, since its inauguration in 1909, the five-member corner has been located to the right of the entrance, which serves as a meeting point for members of the Union and is decorated with their color. The five-man union includes Corps Franconia Karlsruhe, Rhenania ZAB in Braunschweig, Stauffia Stuttgart, Slesvico-Holsatia Hanover and Saxonia-Berlin in Aachen.

On March 12, 1863, 26 days before the Weinheim Senior Citizens' Convention was founded, Franconia Karlsruhe and Rhenania Zurich, now based in Braunschweig, entered into a cartel that has lasted uninterrupted to the present day. By concluding a friendship agreement between Franconia and Rhenania, which had meanwhile been relocated to Aachen, on the one hand, and Stauffia Stuttgart and Slesvico-Holsatia on the other, the Fourth Alliance was founded on July 4, 1874. In the friendship agreement, it was agreed to proceed jointly in questions of the WSC, to support each other in emergencies by handing over corps boys, corps lists (lists of corps members), CC reports (reports about personnel changes in the corps such as admissions, dismissals, appointments) and important ones Communicate resolutions to the local senior citizens' convention. In the summer semester of 1892, the Alliance of Four concluded an interview with Saxonia-Berlin after the corps of the Berlin Seniors' Convent - the corps of the Technical University of Charlottenburg - had become full members of the WSC on January 1, 1892. On June 2, 1897 the League of Four was dissolved and on the same day the League of Five, consisting of the corps of the dissolved Four League and Saxonia-Berlin, was re-established. Following the admission of members of the Free Corps Saxonia by the Corps Saxonia-Berlin on May 10, 1930, which some corps viewed as a violation of the principle of not expanding the five-member union, the five-member union initially ceased to exist, while the cartel between Rhenania and Franconia continued. In 1964, an employment contract was signed by all five corps of the former five-man union and in 1980 the five-man union was re-established by signing a new friendship agreement.

From 1907 to 1928 the WSC built its own conference and meeting place in Weinheim according to plans by the architect Arthur Wienkoop Saxoniae Karlsruhe . The Wachenburg , a modern hilltop castle above Weinheim, should also be a structural symbol of equality with the KSCV. The inauguration of the Wachenburg took place at the 50th foundation festival of the association in 1913. The memorial, an essential part of the castle, was inaugurated in 1928 and expanded in 1963. It commemorates the thousands of Weinheim corps students who lost their lives in the field in the wars of 1866 and 1870/71 as well as the two world wars. The castle and the associated site have been owned by the old gentlemen's association WVAC since 1964.

Weinheim conference

The highest body of the WSC is the Ordinary Weinheim Senior Citizens' Convention (oWSC), which traditionally takes place on the Friday after Ascension Day and on which every corps has a seat and vote. The motions submitted to this convent will be prepared for the last time on the occasion of the council of elders taking place the day before and discussed with the applicants prior to discussion and coordination. The Association of Old Men (WVAC) also meets for its general assembly on Friday.

On Saturday morning, the Weinheim Corps students commemorate the dead members of the association at the Wachenburg memorial with a ceremonial memorial service. In the subsequent ceremony in the ballroom of the Wachenburg, corps students from the two umbrella organizations KSCV and WSC, who knew how to combine outstanding academic achievements with great dedication to their respective federation, were awarded the Klinggräff Medal of the Stifterverein Alter Corpsstudenten eV.

Affiliated Organizations

Weinheim Association of Old Corps Students

The old men of the Weinheim Corps are organized in the Weinheimer Verband Alter Corpsstudenten eV (WVAC) . At the beginning the WSC was a pure association of active corps, for the first time from 1877 old men were invited to the association meetings in Weinheim. The WVAC was only founded on March 26, 1903, on a decisive initiative by Aute Bode , at that time under the name Weinheimer Altherren-Verband (WAHV); the name was changed in 1928. The WVAC is led by a board that is re-elected every two years. In contrast to the suburb of the WSC, there is no fixed order of the local WVAC, rather there is a free composition of a board team, which is up for election at the WVAC general meeting.

Archive and association journals of the WSC

The WSC association archive, founded in 1930, is located in the Institute for Higher Education at the Julius Maximilians University of Würzburg .

From 1895 to 1921 the WSC published the Corpsstudentischen monthly papers as an association magazine. In 1922 they were renamed WSC Messages . From 1932 to 1935 the old title was reverted to before the dissolution of the WSC also meant the end of the association magazine.

In 1953 Die Wachenburg was created , which after merging with the Deutsche Corpszeitung (DCZ), the magazine of the KSCV, was published initially under the title Der Corpsstudent and since 2000 under the name CORPS - the magazine . It is published quarterly in Bad Kösen (ISSN 1615-8180).

Once and Now , the yearbook of the Society for Corps Student History Research , appears annually and is available in bookshops.

Foundation Association of Old Corps Students

The Stifterverein Alter Corpsstudenten is a registered and non-profit association based in Würzburg. The senior gentlemen's association of the Weinheim Senior Citizens' Convention joined the association in 1991. It supports young corps students who have achieved exceptional study results and have demonstrated above-average social commitment. The Donors' Association for Old Corps students has been awarding the Klinggräff Medal since 1987 . The medal was awarded in Würzburg until 1993, and since 1994 it has been awarded alternately at the meetings of the Kösener Senioren-Convents-Verband (in Bad Kösen on the Rudelsburg ) and the Weinheimer Senioren-Convent (in Weinheim on the Wachenburg ). Since the founding of the Stifterverein, 130 award winners have been awarded the medal (as of the end of 2012).

The medal and a current endowment of € 4,000 are awarded to young corps students who make their way through

  1. exemplary corps activity,
  2. outstanding academic performance and
  3. committed service to the common good


Association for corps student historical research

The Association for Corporate Student History Research is an academic history association dedicated to university and student history. The focus is on the history of student associations in Central Europe. With almost 1,300 members (June 2017) it is one of the largest associations of its kind. With two members of the Corps Cisaria , the WSC is represented in the management of the Association for Corps Student History Research.

Relationships with other associations

The WSC is a co-founder of the Andernach working group of the mensurist associations (AGA), which was established in 1951 . Since 1955, he has also been linked by a cartel agreement with the Kösener Seniors Convents Association (KSCV), to which the corps at the traditional universities belong. This contract enables corps students from both associations to become members of corps of both associations. From the 1950s the WSC was involved in university politics and in the Convent of German Corporations Associations (CDK). After a scandal at the ceremony of the corporations in 1998 in the Paulskirche in Frankfurt , the WSC left the CDK in 1999. In the opinion of the two corps associations KSCV and WSC, the German fraternity had too great a negative influence on the event. The corps therefore decided to no longer cooperate with fraternities. This was expressly justified by the fact that there are too close personal and ideal connections to right-wing extremist and nationalist ideas in the ranks of the fraternities. Only with the Coburg Convent (CC) as the third obligatory association do the so-called "three-association talks" still take place at the local level, in which the respective issues are clarified. Any further collaboration with the CC is currently not considered. For some years now, mutual visits have been taking place with representatives of the American fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon . Their organization differs significantly from the German system. Nevertheless, there are many things in common, especially when it comes to the point of honor and questions of political and religious tolerance.
