Master freshman in ZH

Hello englishforum

I'm a 23 years old male from Greece and I have already spent two (kinda dreadful) weeks in Zurich. I will be doing my master in physics at ETH and I'm totally disorientated at the moment (at least I just found a place to stay). I see that newcomers arrange meetings and I'd love to take part at any of them and meet people in situations similar to mine. I'm kinda shy to start asking myself, so if anyone would bother sending me a message, I'll be happy to reply. And btw, is anyone interested in the Wild Beasts concert?

Welcome to the Forum.

Have a look at the Social Events Calendar and remember that a lot of people on here were once new and didn't know anyone: Check out something which appeals to you - sports events, food, or whatever, click in the relevant field to say that you'll be there and then just listen for folk who are talking English.

Yo fellow physics masters student! We should try to arrange some kind of get together or party with a bunch of us, maybe go down to the union at ETH (if there is one?) and get to know other Masters students? Concert sounds good

Re: Master freshman in ZH

@Longbyt, I know that sounds easy for most people, but I always had trouble socializing at a new place. Thanx for welcoming me btw , @DK01 I've already contacted the Mathematics-Physics Verein but I can't really think they could be of any help. We could meet some time at the Uni and plan our next steps there

Re: Master freshman in ZH

Thanks a lot for the warm welcome! I can't find the thanks button, so I'll have to spam a little more. Well, if anyone's interested in meeting new people, let me know and I'll inform you of our "meeting" with DK01. Cheers all

Re: Master freshman in ZH

Hi divine_host,

woo another Masters student! So it looks like the meet-up might be taking place this weekend (somewhere..) If you are interested then that would make 4 people interested so far, plus any more we can get over the course of this week

Dave
