History of Kalas
Kalasmottagningen has been arranged for 11 years, each time as an ending of the welcome ceremony at Linköping University. It began in 2005 as an initiative by the municipality of Linköping and Norrköping in collaboration with Linköping University, and has since then evolved to what it is today. Every year it is LHC's home arena that has been the place for Kalasmottagningen, and it has been like that since the beginning to the present time.
A traditional Kalasmottagning contains a student association fair and a business fair, a stageshow with a speech from the principal, the municipality and the student union, musical performances with our amazing student orchestras and groups, and at last a concert with an afterparty. The concert is a colourful ending of Kalasmottagningen as well as a joyful beginning of the studies at Linköpings University!
