International Student Reception – What a Whirlwind!
By: Tetiana Poliakova
This year, a crisp and sunny Sunday afternoon in mid-October brought us little more than just perfect weather for a walk and gorgeous scenery for Instagram-worthy pictures. October 13th was a special day with an incredible afternoon full of new faces, fun speeches, tasty fika and plenty of exploring. But wait, what is this grand event that I’m talking about?
Every fall, the City of Stockholm hosts an event to welcome all international students to their new student city. 2019’s event was not an exception, and we had such a blast.
Tickets are distributed for free on a first-come, first-served basis. Look out for more information from your university when the time comes!
The event is held annually at the Stockholm City Hall, which normally only can be visited by booking a guided tour.
Around 500 international students are invited to the International Student Reception each year.
Includes fika and mingle in the Golden Hall.
Followed by a pub evening at the Nobel Prize Museum.
