Student life in Sweden is extraordinary - especially because of the Nations. Not only a place to party and hang out, but also one that gives its volunteers the chance to network and enjoy great experiences in a friendly environment.
Do you know how Nations are managed? Have you ever heard of a “Qurator”?
We interviewed Magdalena Stadler, Qurator of Hallands Nation, who will give you insights into her life as “Head of Hallands“. Taking a year off her studies to get more involved in this, she explains her experiences and the challenges it took to get where she is today.
See you in Hallands nation tonight? :D The best place for Friday night!
Oh, and stay tuned cause we have a delicious post for you later.
Lund’s student life is unique! Why? Because of all the different Nations offered to students. But what is a Nation?
In a nutshell….
it’s a restaurant where you can get cheap food, it’s a cafe where you can have fika or brunch, it’s a pub where you get cheap drinks, food and often live bands, it’s a club where you have dance floors, DJs and nice (cheaper) drinks, it’s a student club doing different social activities (e.g. sport) and it’s also a student housing where you can rent a room (if you are lucky). Students are working voluntarily for the nations – you should try it as you will have a lot of fun, meet new people and also get food/drinks/free entrance to the club etc.
A further speciality of Nations are „Sittnings“, which are formal events including aperitif drinks, a three course meal, snaps, wine, beer and lots of traditional Swedish songs, toasts and speeches AND a great party afterwards. Usually Sittnings have a certain theme or motto and the students are encouraged to dress accordingly. Every student in Lund should join a Sittning at least once, it’s an awesome experience! (You will read more about Sittnings in our next blog post!)
Yesterday evening we checked out Hallands Nation, which is one of our favourites here in Lund. It’s the nation for everyone without a certain music or customer profile. This Nation has one of the best and cosiest pubs here in Lund (old library style), including a great atmosphere and one of the largest beer and whisky varieties (35 beers from around the world and 24 different kinds of whiskey). The drinks are very cheap (beer SEK 25) and students also get good food (main course & desert for SEK 45), also try the Nachos (SEK 15).
The pub is open every Wednesday (Pubquiz or Championsleage night) and Friday. On Friday, Hallands Nation also turns on their dance floor and opens their famous club at 10pm, serving many different drinks, cocktails and layered shots. The club is always quite full so be there at around 9.30 / 9.45 to avoid a long queue at the entrance.
Tip: NO club entrance fee if you have dinner at the pub or if you manage to enter it before 9.30pm.
It’s Sunday morning, your fridge and your tummy are empty and you are still hungover??? Or do you just wanna meet your friends and have a nice day start?
We have the ultimate solution for you! Go to Hallands Nation and enjoy the delicious Sunday brunch there. It offers you a great buffet with a variety of food, like nice salads, delicious pizza, homemade bread, fruits, waffles or yummi cookies. Vegetarians will also find enough food ;) And for only SEK 40, it won’t hurt your wallet.
Tip: be there at 10.45 to avoid long queuing - brunch is served until 1pm
