Nolle-P well underway
A few weeks ago, Campus Valla was pretty much deserted. But now the students are back. On Monday 25 August it was time for the new students at the Faculty of Health Sciences to start Nolle-P – a two-week period of welcome events.
Students at Arts & Sciences and Educational Sciences have already started. Last week it was time for the Institute of Technology’s traditional Nolle-P activities. Hundreds of new students and peer students marched solemnly toward Campushallen where they were welcomed with entertainment including an impressive stage show featuring a number of sections.
Now it’s Monday morning and outside Nationernas Hus in central Linköping the footpaths, lawns and benches are packed with students. For new students at the Faculty of Health Sciences it’s almost time for assembly.
Evelina Åkesson and Emilia Broström are sitting on a bench outside Nationernas Hus. They are new in the nursing programme at the Norrköping campus. For them, Nolle-P started last week.
”We’ve made our own hats, got to know the other students in our class, done cooperation exercises and a trashy dinner party. This weekend we’re going to the München Hoben beer festival and a fancy dinner party.”
Not far away, next to the cathedral is a group of peer students. Rebecca Bodiroza (left) is a senior peer student. She takes care of the new students in Linköping, where Nolle-P kicks off today.
”We’re having several dinner parties, we’re going to show the students around and we’re arranging a Nolle Olympics where students from all the programmes at the Faculty of Health Sciences will compete in various events, including a tampon race.”
All students at LiU have two weeks of Nolle-P, parallel with lectures and classes.
