As an international employee at TU Graz, the welcome center team has been a great resource in helping me get adjusted to life in Austria. They are always incredibly helpful and informative, and are quite knowledgeable with all my concerns about living abroad. In addition to offering instructive events about topics important to living in Austria, the monthly get-togethers and excursions have been amazingly fun. Thanks to them, I have been able to make new friends, to get to know more about Graz, and to really feel like I can call Austria my home.
