At the X-Weeks Kick-Off event on 2 March the Department of International Affairs welcomed the new exchange students and introduced their most important contacts at the Department.

For the first time exchange students received personalised welcome packs in which they found, among other things, TU or Darmstadt-themed puzzle pieces.
