Swedish students know how to have fun

by Rita Kristjansdottir, '05

Banquets, parties, barbecues: The Swedes at HPU know how to relax between studying and other academic work.

As a new semester started, the Swedish Student Association welcomed all of its members to a fun and entertaining BBQ at Ala Moana Beach Park.

The event was held Feb. 7, and SSA provided food and entertainment for new and old members. The event started with the famous game Brännboll, which is similar to baseball.

The members also brought canned food as a fund raiser for HPU’s food bank, which was created to help students in need of food at our University.   

On Feb. 15, The Masquerade was the second spring semester social gathering sponsored by the Swedish Student Association. The party was held at the newly opened Royalton Nightclub. More than 200 people came to experience a night in the dance light. The most popular part of the night was when the Swedish DJ Stefan Nilsson, also an SSA board member, played good oldies from the ‘80s and ‘90s as well as Euro disco. He definitely made people shake it like a Polaroid picture.
