Students and staff, and even the weather, showed itself from its best side and welcomed the high school students. Including a trio from Sandbackaskolan in Arvidsjaur who all had further studies in their plans and they liked what they saw.
– It is a very nice university and it's great that there are so many programmes to choose from. The staff and students seem dedicated and the campus is very nice, I've got a good impression. I will not continue with further studies right now, but rather to first find out what I really want to read, says Maja Lindström.
– I have thought of applying for an engineering programme. Environment and Water and also Wood Technology was interesting to learn more about, says Sebastian Dagman
– I will apply for the nursing programme at Luleå University of Technology. My impression of the day is positive, it looks nice and it's a great atmosphere, says Edvin Lundmark.
Madelene Berglund had with Sofi Waltare coordinated the planning of the open house. She was very pleased with the event.
– It has been great, everything has proceeded well and it seems that people involved are satisfied. I got feedback from Tim Foster (teacher and student recruiter at the university) who thought it was a "super-successful Open Day", says Madelene Berglund.
