Success for Light in the dark

Published: 1 December 2017

Each morning in December and in early January, marchalls are lit at Luleå University of Technology. This will allow students and staff to feel extra welcome to the job and lessons during the darkest days of the year.

–This is really nice and the saffron buns are really good! said Javier Pérez-Escariz, Computer Science at Luleå University of Technology.

On December 1,  by tradition,  a torchlight procession, singing Christmas carols, takes place along Regnbågsallén and the university serve Lucia buns and hot coffe. Over 200 students and staff came this year to listen to Christmas carols and to have coffee and saffron bread and, like previous years, this was something that really attracted many exchange students. It was really nice and people enyoyed the moment. It was only - 5 degrees outside, the ground was covered with snow, the marshalls shone all over Regnbågsallén, a fire was heated, the coffee was hot, the saffron buns freshly baked and the Christmas songs incredibly nice.

There were probably many who, thanks to this, got a good start to the week's last working day or school day and they were reminded that it soon will be Christmas and therefore soon will be brighter days.

At all Campus in Kiruna, Skellefteå, Piteå and Luleå, marchalls are lit during December.
