"It has been a fulfilling two years for me so far. I have met new people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds and made lots of good friends.
As an international student, I do feel welcomed and have a strong sense of belonging to the university. Outside the classes, I have taken on different volunteer positions and joined student organisations that allow me to get to know South Australia better."
