New students flock to the first-year students’ welcome event
Welcome to FAU
Students face a number of changes when starting university: new life, new friends and a new city. In order to help new students settle in at FAU this winter semester, FAU President Prof. Dr. Joachim Hornegger invited them to the official welcome event on 14 October in the Heinrich Lades Halle in Erlangen. Students were not only able to grab one of the popular blue FAU bags, it was also the perfect opportunity to find out a lot of useful information all about student life. More than 50 stands gave the new FAU students an overview of the various services available at the University such as the University Library, the Computer Centre, the Language Centre and the Sports Centre. A number of student initiatives, Student Services and various foundations also advertised their services.
Here are a few tips to help you settle in:
- The magazine frisch! an der FAU – a guide for new students offers links, top tips and information about studying at FAU, and a lot more besides. You can pick up a copy at several different locations throughout FAU.
- You can stay up to date with the latest news from the University via FAU’s social media channels.
- The FAU App makes it easy to access the services you will need to use the most at FAU.
- You can find explanations of terms used in University life in our Student A–Z.
