Ylva Fältholm about the first 100 days:
I feel very much welcomed and everyone has been most kind and helpful.
I am very impressed with the University’s education and research. Now, I am looking forward to developing its activities during the years to come together with all the competent and committed members of staff whom I have met.
Actually, this impression corresponds to my first one, but it has been strengthened. I really feel as if I found the right university.
