Siegen is in the North Rhine Westphallia state in west Germany. The good thing about schooling here is that with a Semesters fee you can travel within the whole of North Rhine Westphallia without paying.
More well known towns in my state are Cologne, Bonn, Dortmund, Dusseldorf and Essen. Frankfurt though in another state is also only 2 hours away.
I travelled to Cologne 2 days ago and I really loved it there. It's got the big city feel which is lacking in Siegen.

Though Siegen is small(ish), I think I will enjoy my stay here. There is a little of everything and its got the right environment to help me concentrate on my studies.
Right now, I am searching for a permanent place to live and I have done a few house viewings. Without a contract, you cant get much done around here. You need a rental contract to register at the city. You need the city registration to apply for a resident card. You need a resident card to apply for jobs. And yeah I would like to work.
Lectures havent started yet,so for now I am just spending my time getting things done and meeting up with some people I know here.
The weather is a bit chilly at the moment but I am gradually getting used to it.
