And if you know that others keep you in mind if you are not well, it is easier to stay home,” says Anna Karlsson-Bengtsson.</div> <h2 class="chalmersElement-H2">Anna’s and Catrin’s three best tips to get a good start at Chalmers and in Gothenburg</h2> <div><strong>1. Join the welcome activities.</strong> CIRC (Chalmers International Reception Committee) will offer you a lot of events and adventures to join. Select the ones you are interested of and respect others who might not want to join. Include each other and take the chance to make new friends.</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>2. Explore the city of Gothenburg.</strong> Ride a bike, join the tram race or rent an electric scooter and get to know the city. Take a trip to Röda sten and look at the amazing views. Take the boat over to Lindholmen, swim in Delsjön or in the sea. Gothenburg also has one of Europe's most beautiful botanical gardens, where you can enjoy a picnic. Eventually you will find your own favorite place!</div> <div><br /></div> <div><strong>3. Get familiar with campus.</strong> Grab a ‘phadder’ and ask them to show you the best place to study. Remember that you do not have to sit where you usually have lectures. At Chalmers there is something for everyone, look at the union's website and on the Student Portal and discover associations, experiments and everything you can take part in.</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Stay safe, have fun and above all – welcome to Chalmers!</div> <div><br /></div> <div>Text: Johanna Fasth</div> <span style="background-color:initial">Photo: Anna-Lena Lundqvist​</span></div>Wed, 14 Jul 2021 00:00:00 +0200
