On these days, you will get the grand tour of the Campus, learn some fun facts and hopefully pick up some Chalmers jargon by the end of the tour. Come and find out more about the places where you can grab a quick lunch, buy good coffee, buy your course material, find a quiet place to study or cool off after a long day.
Most of you probably need to buy some basic stuff like furniture, blankets, pillows, cutlery and so on. If you need to get things at IKEA or just want to join the crowd, you are welcome to join us! Participate in the IKEA challenge by taking the pictures of you and your Phadder group in IKEA. Be creative and go crazy!
It is a city tour that will make you to explore Gothenburg with your new friends while solving riddles, doing funny bonuses and taking lots of pictures. This will make you earn points and friendly competition with other Phadder groups while doing some fun things around the city.
It’s time to bowl! With settling in Chalmers, Phadders will take you out in the city of Gothenburg and show you some of the awesomest bowling alleys where you can bowl the night out with your new friends and have a great time.
Trip to Flea Market
Have you ever seen lot of cool stuff at a single place for the cheapest? Yes or No, Feel free to shop with us at one of the Gothenburg’s cheapest markets where you can find almost anything and everything. Apart from Ikea and other big stores, these places are definitely ones to visit.
Partying is fun, but what about parting in a train wagon!! In Chalmers you get a cool wagon just for fun, so come and join the party…It is one of the most fun party venues on campus, the Train Wagon. This is the first train party of the semester and it is a Chalmers tradition, so make sure to get a ticket soon!
Some of our activities require tickets. This is because of the limited amount of people are allowed in the venues. There is a fee for these events, but it is important to know that as a committee of the Student Union, our purpose is not to make money from these events, so what you pay is to cover the venue rent, food, DJ’s, etc.. More Information about the ticket selling are given during the reception period.
Are you ready for an otherworldly laser battle? During this event, two teams will fight to the last shot in an exciting arena spanning two floors. Over the 30 minutes of battle adrenaline level will be soar sky high and reflexes will be put to the test!
It’s one of the most appreciated “non-traditional traditions”, which people and students in this country have grown fond of. Every Friday, some pubs and restaurants have Afterwork specials with a free buffet and happy hour prices in the bar.
What is a Sauna?
Well, a sauna is basically a small cabin which has a heating facility. This enables the cabin to have raised levels of temperature, usually in the order of 70 – 90°C. We must mention that Chalmers owns one of the biggest wood fired saunas in all of Scandinavia. This monster can seat up to 60 people at the same time!
So, What is a “Sauna Trip”?
For this trip you will leave from Chalmers on a bus and travel about 45 minutes to a beautiful lake called Sandsjön, East of Gothenburg. The Sauna sits on the very edge of the lake, so you can swim as well! The Sauna is in a cosy cabin that has a kitchen and dining area with a fireplace.
After you get there, you will have fun playing some games and chopping wood for the Sauna, after which you will be able to get ready to get into the Sauna which will probably by now be nice, hot and ready for you! Once you are done with the Sauna, we will serve you some snacks or the very famous SWEDISH FIKA in the dining hall where you will be able to eat, sing, drink and be merry until it is time for you to leave!
Games and Sports Night
During this event you will have access to numerous board and team games from the CIRC office and to the motion hall in the student union building. It is a good occasion to pass the time together and to meet more students while playing and having fun.
Wouldn’t it be awesome to be able to taste food from all over the world while also showing off famous food from your home country? The international dinner is your event then! Every participant cooks and brings a few portions of food that is specific to their own nationality. This then turns into a buffet of food from all over the world!
Additionally, we will focus on socialising and more unique parts of your country, so use the open stage and sing traditional songs or just tell famous jokes that just don’t work in English.
Info: Please be aware of allergies and food preferences while making your food and if you can substitute an ingredient to another one that more people can enjoy, it would be much appreciated! Also please note that due to restrictions, this is a non-alcoholic event and any kind of alcohol is not permitted!
They say that all good things must come to an end, and so it is now time for the Spring Reception to also reach its official end. We hope to do this together in one last gathering we call the Finale, where we get to look back on the weeks that have been and the things that you guys have done and experienced. Hope to see you there!”
