Donate your old shoes
During the introduction it’s usually popular to take a swim in Sjön Sjön and since you can find a lot of things in the lake it’s important to wear shoes. If you have any old shoes you no longer want the Fös will happily take them so the new students can wear them when taking a bath! Size och condition of the shoes doesn’t matter, we’re very grateful for Everything! There will be a coffin in the Hilbertroom from Monday 20/5 to Thursday 23/5 where you can put them. Thank you!
Hugs from the Fös

Truth of the Week
As a complete Eurovision geek, I am feeling very disappointed today. Last night, was the grand final in the world’s biggest music competition, Eurovision Song Contest, and I was very hopeful for Sweden to win. John Lundvik did an amazing performance however, the competition was quite hard this year. And since Sweden have won six times already and the last time was 2015 and 2012 before that, it might be good for someone else to win. Don’t get me wrong, the only thing I want is for Sweden to win but the risk is that all other countries loose interest if one country is superior. Look at what is happening in the World cup for cross-country skiing for example. Norway, Sweden or Russia win 9 out of 10 times and the audience in the rest of Europe is getting smaller and smaller.
We want Eurovision to continue to bring Europe together. It is an amazing and incredibly entertaining phenomenon. Once a year you get to experience so many different cultures and hear music you would never get the chance of hearing otherwise and I love everything about it. It is a positive force in the world and I hope it lives forever!
Speaking of Europe, it’s the election to the European Parliament on Sunday and everyone must make their voice heard. Don’t forget to vote.
