The Fadder festival is all about getting to know fellow students, lecturers, the university and Stavanger.
As a new student at the UiS you will be warmly welcomed by those who know the university best – the not-so-new students.
«It has taken us a while to come up with good, alternative solutions for this year’s Fadder festival, and we are very proud to announce that there will be a week of Fadder fun for all students during the first week of the semester. Not bad considering the strange and uncertain corona times that we have and are still experiencing», says vice president of Fadder, Anne Helene Thorvaldsen.
The purpose of the byddy programme Fadder is to allow new student to settle in both socially and academically at the uni, and to get out and about in the town centre.
Smaller groups, many events
After the official semester opening Monday August 10, it is time to kick off the Fadder festival. For the rest of the week, many of the events and activities that are part of the Fadder arrangement will be carried out as they normally do, but with fewer participants and at organized time slots.
«In keeping with the infection control measures imposed by the Norwegian government, several activities will take place at the same time around campuses and in Stavanger, such as concerts, excursions, bowling and lots of fun outdoor activities», says Thorvaldsen.
