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.
