Arrival Day kicks off the new semester

The spring semester in Lund kicks-off with a new Arrival Day for 500+ exchange students. We took the opportunity to meet a few of these news students. All a bit jet-lagged but mostly excited about all the opportunities to explore a new part of the world and many new friendships.
