During the first weeks of each autumn semester, ULS (Ultuna student union) arrange welcoming weeks for new students. The pace during the weeks is often high and there are a lot of activities that are all arranged by our union functionaries (a functionary is a student who works voluntarily at the Union). It is an inviting atmosphere on campus and it is very important to us that you as a student feel welcome and safe.

The welcoming weeks start on Thursday 25th of August and end on Saturday 10th of September. These weeks are full of activities and elements that enrich student life, and help you get on your feet in your new student city. As a new master’s or exchange student (also called a minion), you will get to know other students, and the traditions associated with Ultuna Student Union and the university.

The welcoming activities are there for you as a new student to have the opportunity to meet other students within and between the years and between the programs. It is a perfect opportunity to make new contacts and have fun at the same time. The welcoming activities also include an introduction to the campus, the Union and the university. Here you will not only meet sponsors and functionaries from the Union, but also has the opportunity to get to know representatives and organizations from both business and the municipality.

Master Committee and International Committee

Arranging the welcoming activities for master’s and exchange students are us in the Master Committee (MC) and the International Committee (IC) of the Student Union. The former committee is responsible for the welcoming of new master’s students (both Swedish and international), while the latter is responsible for the welcoming of international exchange students. During the welcoming weeks, we collaborate and hold joint activities so that master’s and exchange students have the opportunity to get to know each other. We also collaborate with two other union committees (Fadderiet and SMK) during the welcoming weeks.

Dinners during the year

During the union year, the union's "Klubbmästeri" organizes dinners. These are very fun events where you eat good food under more controlled conditions and get the opportunity to hang out with Ultuna students. Depending on the academic event in question, different clothing requirements apply, usually a suit. You will receive more information about the dinners during the Welcoming Weeks and in the future, keep an eye on the union's social media!

Traditions at Ultuna

Ultuna Student Union is an old union (90 year celebrations coming up later this year) with great ancestry, but do not let this scare you. Of course, much will be new and unfamiliar, but you will learn quickly. Our traditions include everything from dinners and festivities, to more subtle things. The most important thing to know is that the traditions are here to improve our time at Ultuna.
