The nations of Lund are nothing without all the volunteering students that help out to make the university years a bit more fun than they would’ve been otherwise. All of our activities at Sydskånska are run by volunteering students, and becoming active in a nation is one of the best ways to meet new friends and do something fun in your free time.
Here at Sydskånska you can work with serving, cooking for both cafes, the pub and three-course meals, serving cocktails during our clubs, photographing or creating content for the nation’s graphic design to name a few things!
Work at Sydskånska!
We always need more students who want to be active in the nation.
