The students had prepared 20 tables with dishes from their home countries and also served information to the interested visitors.
"We spent all day yesterday getting ready for the international day", told the students satisfied with their achievement.
Around lunch time people gathered to admire and taste the different dishes. The International day was also a great opportunity for Swedish students to ask their international peers about what it is like to study at their universities. The event continued with afternoon tea and language café in the Student Union's new premises the Kårner and in the evening an international movie night followed.
The goal of the event was to present a meeting place.
"We want present the international environment and diversity at the University", explains Kristin Podssuweit, international coordinator, who is very satisfied with the event.
