Music led the students from Campus Falun down to the Magasinet after a morning of breakfast, registration and student information.
On Monday it was once again time to welcome new students to Dalarna University. The day was full of activities that started off with breakfast and a small information fair. In Borlänge, students were given the chance to get a photograph of themselves wearing folk costumes. A bit of match-making was also on the cards, as well as the chance to join the local innebandy team and to win gym passes.
Registration took place in the corridors at which time students received a bag full of interesting goodies while they found out more about their programmes before lunch was served.
Folk Music Led the Way
A while later in Falun, students gathered with their peers outside the main campus building before setting off as a procession towards the building known as Magasinet, where students were welcomed with some drama sketches, a speech delivered by the Vice Chancellor Marita Hilliges and some uniquely choreographed dance. Then it was time for mingling. A number of students continued with the activities by taking part in an organised barbecue.
A busy day requires a good breakfast! Coffee and cheese sandwiches were on the menu in Borlänge.
Region Dalarna's project Stanna i Dalarna (Stay in Dalarna) put on a dating service at the mini student fair in Borlänge. Some 70 students jumped at the opportunity to find a future friend or even love interest!
Erasmus students from many different countries are looking forward to learning more about Sweden.
There were a few nervous looks being shared prior to registration.
Vice Chancellor Marita Hilliges welcomed the gathered students at Magasinet in Falun. "Don't forget to have fun!" she reminded everyone.
