New to Zurich (20-something American)--Finding friends?

Hello everyone,

I recently moved to Zurich just 4 days ago and found out about this website from one of my roommates and thought I would introduce myself! I'm a 20-something female starting a PhD in a STEM field at ETH. I listen mostly to classic rock and vocal jazz/soul. My hobbies include writing, travel, outdoors activities (hiking, kayaking, camping, etc), photography, scuba diving, astronomy, and wine tasting! My most recent ventures have included teaching English at a Tibetan monastery, getting my cold water diving certification, and camping for a week in Banff (Canada).

I'm hoping perhaps this post will lead to some new friendships--I've already caught myself wishing I knew someone in Zurich/CH besides my advisor (even if he is a really great advisor). So please if you'd like to meet for coffee or something message me on here and I'll reply

Hi and welcome to Switzerland. There is some interesting diving in Lake Zürich, visit these guys if you feel up for it they are very nice, speak a bit of English and dive every Tuesday evening then go for Pizza afterwards: scubaviva.ch

I know, I know. Check out my post history--you will see the resident's permit drama that has unfolded before me this week. I actually started to tell you about it, but then it became this huge rant. I might have deleted it because it sounded....slightly whiny.
