This orchestra was a big event on campus and in the whole of Linköping that lasted for four days. Students from all over Sweden and even Finland came to Linköping to play in concerts, parades and socialize on campus where a big festival area was built. It was nice to see all those students enjoying to play music together and the happy atmosphere was once again something that showed me how special the student life in Sweden is. The best part of SOF was that every day parts of the festival could be visited without paying an entry fee and there was a big parade in the city on Saturday that went from the city center up to Gamla Linköping that everyone could attend :). For me as a German girl who comes from an area where carneval is celebrated this felt a bit like home as we use to have those parades once per year for carneval. So after two years Linköping felt as much home as never before.
