About theme weeks
The theme week week is an event organized by students to help celebrate the diversity of students that exists at University of Borås. It gives students at the University a chance to learn about the cultures, traditions, and ways of life of other countries. It also gives the students who help arrange the week a chance to identify with their roots and show off their heritage. If you and some other countrymen are interested in organising your own theme week you should contact douglas.washburn@hb.se to receive support and advice.
