Today we welcomed our new students to Uppsala University with a traditional reception in the university hall. For me as the Vice-Chancellor this is one of the highlights of the semester. I still remember the feeling when I was a new student at the university, the excitement mixed with some uncertainty about how it would be. You have a great time ahead of you!
Hosting today’s reception was meteorologist and climate lecturer Pär Holmgren, a former student and now honorary doctor at Uppsala University. In addition to musical entertainment, the president of Uppsala Student Union, Fredrik Pettersson, and Curator curatorum, Kristina Melin, among others, also welcomed our new students.
The reception was broadcast online, and is available here.
