RYD

The most popular residential area for students in Linköping is Ryd. At first sight, especially during the first weeks in Linköping, Ryd can be a maze. It might take a couple of weeks to get used to, but without realising everyone identifies Ryd as their spot in Linköping.

Although we all live in Linköping, Ryd can be considered as a micro-city within Linköping. It is actually surprisingly easy to spend long periods of time without leaving Ryd, besides for going to uni.

So what can be found in Ryd?

Ryd centrum with Hemköp, a hairdresser, a bike shop, a flower shop, two restaurants, a pharmacy and more.

A doctor and a dentist.

A gym.

A forest for running, football fields, basketball and volleyball fields as well as barbecue places.

And of course many flats. Corridors usually consists of 8 rooms, each with a private bathroom. Kittchen and living rooms are shared, but they are very big and if everyone takes care of it, there are no problems.

I really enjoyed living here and I hope you will too 🙂

Linköping’s Sports Association!

Hello all! Today’s topic is about sports at LiU.

I consider myself a very active person, so I really appreciate to have the opportunity of playing some sports, meeting people and essentially to have fun outdoors. Linköping University has associated the LiU AIF, or in English, the Linköping Academic Sports Club.  This association is divided into several sections offering different types of sports. Currently, they are offering football, floorball, tennis, squash, swimming, basketball and handball.

All the organizations are run by students, so they are really dynamic as well as flexible. After speaking to them they are really keen on hearing about new ideas.

So, are you interested in playing sports? Are you maybe even interested in starting a new sports organization? I leave you a link to their website: https://www.svenskalag.se/liuaif

I will definitely give a try and write about it in another post!  🙂

Attending a Master Thesis presentation

Master thesis defense

June is here! Which means summer and vacations are really close but… first there is a toll that we have to pay. For most of us, it is the exam period. But for other people, the ones about to graduate, it is time for the defense of their master thesis.

I have some friends in this situation, so today I went to one of their presentation to show support. It is a really interesting experience for students that will take part in a program. Speaking to an audience can be scary for some people, so the more prepared you are the better.

How is a master thesis presentation in the engineering faculty? 
First of all, the examiner introduces the speaker or speakers and the thesis topic. Apparently, you can do your Master thesis at the engineering faculty by yourself or with a partner. After it, the students present their thesis in about 20 minutes. Once the students have talked about their work and the stress is released, it is time for the opponent group to ask questions. These questions lead to some open discussion where the audience can ask questions.

I would fully recommend you to attend to a couple of master thesis presentation during your first year, it will be very useful for when it is your time to do your own project

Good luck with your studies!

Linköping – a little history

Posted in: Allmän on 8 June, 2017 by Lisa

Linköping

Linköping is part of Östergötland in the south of Swededn and the next city is Nörrköping. Linköping has about 105000 inhabitants and it’s kathedral can be seen from afar.

The name of Linköping can half be explained by the latter part “-köping”. if you know that the k before an ö is spoken “shhh”, you already realise that it resembles the word “shopping”. This implies that there was a market in Linköping, which gave the place it’s name. Once you know this, you will see many cities with the ending “-köping” in Sweden

Linköping is an important city in Sweden, as it homes LiU, our University, and Saab aircraft industry and technology and software industry, which offered many jobs and let Linköping grow a great deal in the last century.

I hope you enjoy this brief introduction and even more so living here 🙂

queuing

QUEUES

This is something you will notice quickly here. Queuing for everything and everywhere. Well especially for party tickets. Some very few events are so advanced, you can buy the tickets online until they sell out. However, this is maybe part of the tradition? I am not sure. But either way, you will queue here more than you have ever before. And when you queue it will be in very ungodly times like 03-07 in the morning. Outside. Yes also in winter. So the best thing to do is get some sort of shift system working with your friends and also take turns in buying tickets, as you will be allowed to buy four at a time.

Also bring some hot drings and blankets during winter, and nonetheless, this is part of the experience, so have fun, stay warm and see you there 🙂
