International Day, IDAY 2015

International Students Association (ISA) – Linköping University welcomes you to celebrate the 10th International Day (IDAY) on 10 April, 2015.

International Day or IDAY is the biggest international student festival in the region and was first celebrated in 2005. This year we celebrate our 10th anniversary and promise lots of festivities! During the last International day, IDAY 2014 we had more than 21 countries being represented by students studying at Linköping University. We are looking forward to an even larger and successful event this year. Everyone associated to Linköping University including employees, faculty, research personnel and students are welcome to represent their culture and traditions from their respective countries.

IDAY consists of two parts. During the exhibition, people from all across the world will represent their country at a stand in a fair like atmosphere. The guests can walk around and marvel at the many stands – featuring traditional clothes, food, dances, games, music and much more. ISA sponsors each stand, so we will pay you for all the expenses you have for putting up your stand.

Tell us what you think about LiU!

Between February 17th and March 13th LiU and the Student unions will send you an email with a questionnaire. The reason? We want to find out what you think about your work environment here at LiU.

The questionnaire contains questions about education, equal opportunities for all students, student influence and services, but also about practical issues such as study areas and student kitchens. The questionnaire is sent to your student email. Answer it by email, the Student portal or Lisam. It only takes 10 minutes and you can complete it on laptop, mobile phone and tablet.

In the last Student Questionnaire, more than 8 in 10 students were satisfied with life at LiU. But there were things that could be improved. That’s why we installed projectors in all classrooms, built four student kitchens and study areas with room for 289 students. Read more about improvements, response rate and student interviews: www.liu.se/sq.
