Activities for Växjö / Kalmar, Sweden

Students are paired with a buddy—a Swedish student mentor—who helps orient them to the university, city and surrounding area. This serves as a nice way to integrate into the local community.

Students also are able to participate in other university activities, student organizations, and sports and will have access to the library and computing facilities. International student organizations in both Kalmar (ESN, Erasmus Student Network) and Växjö (VIS, Växjö International Students) frequently organize Swedish themed social events to give students from abroad a taste of the culture. Each semester, there are a number of holidays and festivals to enhance your experience.
