On Thursday 14th September, Gothenburg welcomed approximately 800 new students during a welcoming ceremony at the Museum of World Culture organized by Student Göteborg.
Student Göteborg arranged a fully-packed evening where new students got the chance to participate to many activities. Live music with the band Slowgold and DJ Lovefuck gave tempo to the evening. Student could even attend a dance performance from The Göteborg Opera, screenings, workshops, exhibitions, and much more. All in all, it was a successful event.
“We are proud and extremely pleased to present such a wide and interesting range of content on our welcoming ceremony. We had new activities this year with screenings from Draken Film, Ted Talks, popup store from Emmaus and many exhibitors as well as two conference delegates. It almost felt like Student Göteborg had its own festival!” said Nathalie Bödtker-Lund, project manager at Göteborg & Co for Student Göteborg.
Gothenburg welcomes around 13.000 new students each semester. Student Göteborg has organized welcoming activities and created meeting places among national and international students since 2006. Student Göteborg is a campaign from Göteborg & Co Trade and Industry Group in collaboration with the University of Gothenburg, Chalmers and the student unions.
