Spring is here! And even in Sweden we go to the beach =)

Wow, what a weekend! Although today was unfortunately a lazy, rainy sunday, yesterday had a lot to offer. Not only was it the finals of the Eurovision competition in Malmö, which probably many of you watched, but also student life had some fun things to offer! Luckily, yesterday was super sunny and warm – hopefully a preview of what the … Läs mer

Valborg! Getting up at 5.30 to celebrate spring =)

Tuesday morning. 5.30 am – my alarm is ringing. Not for an exam or job interview or similar. No! So is the alarm of circa 27.000 other students. Where other people go to bed after having gone out at night, we all got up to party and celebrate Valborg. Traditionally, the 30th of April – Walpurgis Eve, is celebrated as the end … Läs mer

The art of asking the right questions – or – Doing research part 1

No matter whether you are a bachelor, master or no student at all – we always have to ask questions. To teachers, fellow students, and well sometimes even to random strangers who have some knowledge about a subject that we are interested in. I have been doing this recently, and will do so throughout the following months, in order to … Läs mer

Bunnies, Eggs and Witches – On Easter in Germany and Sweden

Hi everyone and happy Easter! After having spent last year’s Easter in Sweden with my boyfriend’s family, I decided to return home to celebrate this year’s Easter in Germany. And of course, this allows for some fun comparison of the different traditions. Now, with my cultural glasses on, totally absorbed by German culture, Swedish Easter traditions seem a bit funny. … Läs mer

We want you! Come study with us!

Sweden, 15h of March 2013 – the application period for bachelor programmes starts NOW. Yesterday was open house at Campus and hopefully you have been there to learn more about Service Management?!

Good to have in every student’s CV: extracurricular activities!

Vote for me to be a FUM!   Being a student is of course not just all about reading books, taking exams or group works. One of the best things about studying is the great amount of extracurricular activities that one can engage in.

Aren’t we all ‘compost-modernists’? – Combining environmental concerns with intense travel

Acknowledgedly, many of us today share some sort of “green values” and a concern for our environment. We bike to school or work, recycle our waste and maybe even have a small compost in our gardens. But many of us also love to travel, which clearly has been promoted even more through low-cost airlines and flights that cost us 0,01€ … Läs mer

Being your own boss – or – the challenge of finding motivation

Hi everyone! The last few weeks in my student life have been rather monotonous – I was reading a lot (though less than planned) of articles for my master thesis, which is my big project at the moment. And even though we are having some sort of schedule for this semester, it means that we are rather our own bosses. … Läs mer
