I liked the Welcome Weeks because it was a great opportunity to meet amazing people from all around the world and make new friends.
Student from Brazil
I loved all the events and the main reason is that all of the events were well structured and very informative. […] Though I'm not in Aachen yet, I can say now that I know RWTH and Aachen city already.
Student from India
Most of the events reminded me of the ones I have at my home university, so it made me feel a really warm welcome and also like home.
