After a long weekend, its time to get back to business :)
You enjoyed great Easter time with your family and friends and went crazy on the chocolate eggs, but now you have another week ahead of you to plan for….THE SUMMER. Wait, don’t forget we’re talking about “business” in the summer, meaning also a bit of work combined with a bit of fun.
The Association for Latin American Affair (ALAA) in Lund has just the right event for you.
Why stay in Europe when you can go somewhere more exotic for your dream internship? If Latin America sounds as an amazing idea to you as it does to us, then you have to join us this Wednesday in ALAA:
This is an event organized in association with AIESEC and Svalorna Latin America aiming to help you get an idea of what this experience can mean to you and also help you get started. Join it for an inspiring discussion, ideas, dreams and opportunities, together with great fika.
See you on Wednesday at 7:00pm in Lunds Samhällsvetarkår (Paradisgatan 5S, 223 50 Lund, Sweden). Bring your friends!

- aluminum foil
Here is what you do:
- slice the banana on one side
- put small pieces of chocolate into the slice

If you love music as much as we do, then you shouldn’t miss the Tivoli Fredagsrock. From 13th of April on, the Tivoli park in Copenhagen is having a concert each Friday night featuring many famous Danish and international singers/bands like “The Storm”, “The Cardigans” and “Medina”, playing everything from Reggae to Pop and Dance. It’s a great way to discover new music and enjoy the Nordic spring/summer. The best thing is: it’s cheap! You only pay the normal entrance for the park: 95 DKK for a day ticket (before 8pm) or 260 DKK for a season ticket. As the Fredagrock concerts are always very popular, make sure to be there in time. We recommend you to spend a nice day at Tivoli and then enjoy the concert in the evening, warm ups start around 19h and the concerts at 22h. Got to Tivoli Fredagsrock to find more information and Spotify playlists. Enjoy!

Probably that’s what Bob Marley would say to students :P
Just when you’re expecting everything to blossom and to have long walks under the sun, it’s actually time for hard studying. Well, to make it easier for you we thought of providing some tips of good study places:
Alpha I building- Scheelevägen 15B- at the ground floor you can find computer rooms, tables which are great for group work, as well as private rooms where you can study in silence. While the group work places also have a view towards a nice garden, the individual rooms are preferred by some students due to their “lack of sky”- you have no connection to the outside, so all that is left is to FOCUS! :) This is of course if you block your Facebook account for a while. What is great is that, compared to the libraries, you can enter the building whenever you want and stay for however long you wish (of course you need your student card with your code to enter the building after certain hours and on weekends)
LUSEM library-Tycho Brahes väg 1,in EC1- this is a good place for group work, at the first floor of the Economy Centre; however, even if there are also many places for individual study, it can get a bit loud sometimes, from the group discussions you can hear from downstairs or from all the students who come to borrow a book. Also, you can only enter the library within certain hors, according to the week day:
Monday: 10:00 - 20:00
Tues - Thurs: 08:15 - 20:00
Friday: 08:15 - 18:00
Saturday: 10:00 - 14:00
LTH Study Centre- John Ericssons väg 4- this is a very good place for both groupwork and individual study. On the ground floor you can find two silent rooms: one to the left you where you are allowed to bring your laptop and one to the right, which is for reading only. However, this place can only be used between certain hours:
Mon-Thurs: 08:00 – 20:00
Friday: 08:00 – 17:00
Saturday: 10:00 – 15:00
Sunday: 10:00 – 16:00
Main Library UB- Helgonabacken- this is a very nice spot for studying either alone or in groups. You can book group rooms easily here: http://www1.ub.lu.se/externt/apps/bokning/meny_eng.cfm
If you get hungry or thirsty in between, you can go downstairs to have a coffee break. In the café they have as well special lunch breaks where you can choose from different salads. The study areas are huge, but you need to be early, because it’s always packed, as it is so popular. Tip: If you have any questions how the whole library system works, just ask at the desk and they will explain you how to search books, journals or articles or how to make requests and gather material.

As you know, Göteborg ist one of the most beautiful and vibrant cities in Sweden and full with friendly people. It’s a definite must-see! Our personal favorite “sight”: Café Husaren and its XXL Hagabullar – allegedly Sweden’s biggest kanelbullar. The café is located in the oldest (and one of the loveliest) part of the city called Haga where Göteborg was founded in the middle of the 17th century. Today, it is famous for its small alternative stores, beautiful houses and the relaxed atmosphere. Make sure to check it out!
As we all love Sushi but don’t always have time to prepare it by ourselves, we went on a quest for the best Sushi restaurant here in Lund. And we found it – Ra Epok (Swedish for “Raw Epoch”).
This cute and unique restaurant follows its philosophy to use only local Swedish fish such as trout, walleye or cod, meaning that they do not use any fish on “IUCN Red List of Threatened Species”. The Sushi is prepared next to the customers and a delicious soup is offered while waiting for the fresh Sushi. The prices are very reasonable and therefore this restaurant is quite busy during lunch- and dinnertime. Try it - you will be impressed!
