Hiking the Upplandsleden – By Lauren

One fun activity to do in Sweden is go hiking. Recently, my student nation organized a trip to hike part of the Upplandsleden. The Upplandsleden is a trail that goes all over the Upplands province. We hiked the first section of the trail, a ten-kilometer stretch from Sunnersta to Moralund. It was a fun way […]

Adventures through southern Sweden – By Pau

What a better way to enjoy Easter break than travelling? From March 28 to April 3, I joined my French friend to a trip to the south of Sweden (mainly Lund), where we toured around different places. I never expected this region to be so beautiful and different from what I am used to see […]

Snapphanefesten – By Rhianna

One of the benefits about being active at the nation is that you get to meet students from other Universities that are connected to your nation through ‘friendships’. Every nation in Uppsala has ties with a select set of ‘friendship-nations’ around the world and travel there for specific celebrations or festivals. It’s easy to forget […]

My first taste of Swedish Football – By Arindam

‘What a great day for football, all we need is some green grass and a ball’ The above quote by the legendary Bill Shankly perfectly summarizes the emotions of a hardcore football fan in Sweden. Though getting a football (the real one which is not played using hands) anytime in the year is never a […]

Getting Around Uppsala – By Lauren

Unless you wish to spend the whole semester in your student corridor, you will need to familiarize yourself with your transportation options in Uppsala. The city center is relatively walkable and easy to navigate but other places are less realistic to reach by foot. Cycling is likely the most popular form of student transportation. An […]

Chasing the Northern Lights – By Kanishk

Aurora Borealis is Latin for “The dawn of the north”. Aurora was a Roman goddess of dawn and Borealis in Greek means the north wind. Moving out from your home to another country is such an enriching experience. You get to know about different types of cultures, food, diversity and scenic beauty. So to begin […]

Unexpected “treats” from the supermarket – By Pau

I’ve been in Sweden for almost three months now. I consider myself pretty familiarized with how daily life in Sweden works: I’ve got a routine, I know what and where to buy the things I need, I know how to dress according to the weather… But it is in the most unexpected moment when you […]

Class trip to Dorset – By Halie

“What are you doing in the UK?” the border patrol officer asked me as I handed him my passport. “I’m on a fieldtrip with my Paleobiology class from Uppsala University,” I replied. The officer dully and sarcastically chuckled “thrilling” in response before stamping my passport, handing it back, and yelling “next!” to the long line […]

Women in Tech – By Audra

March 8, 2018. International Women’s Day. A day dedicated to celebrating the achievements of women of the past, present, and future. How did I spend the day? Well, it all began back in January. I saw a Facebook event for something I never heard of before – WIT Stockholm. Women in Tech Stockholm, #WITsthlm2018, was […]

What to do in Fjällnora? – By Paulina

I have never been a fan of going outdoors and doing activities like hiking and camping. Nevertheless, it seemed ridiculous for me to keep this mentality when I arrived to Uppsala (it has been almost two months now!) and discovered that it is surrounded by beautiful forests. I decided that I should step out of […]
