Before each new semester, the Student Union in Sundsvall (SKS) arranges an introduction week for the new students on behalf of Mid Sweden University. The aim is to welcome and introduce all new students to Mittuniversitetet, Sundsvall and student life. During the introductory week, various competitions and events are held in cooperation with line associations and other actors to get to know other students. An inspark usually includes games, plays, parties, singing, fireball and dancing. There are no exact rules for how an inspark should be run, but each city and university has its own version of an inspark and there are different traditions within the different programmes. In Sundsvall we focus on fun activities to get to know other students both new and old, learn how studies work at Mid Sweden University and the city of Sundsvall.
Often, romping is associated with embarrassment or doing things against your will. We would like to stress that this is NOT a description that fits our park. What's important to us is that everyone has fun and makes new friends. At the activities and events you can of course choose not to bring alcohol or have it. Non-alcoholic options are always available. Many people wonder what to wear during an inspark - there is no special dress code for new students and when there is, events reveal everything from immodest clothing to fine dress. Those who arrange wear overalls in different colours where depending on the colour you belong to a particular society. The Student Union in Sundsvall delegates the responsibility during the event and you can always talk to one of the following:
Generals plan and execute the inspection and they have the responsibility on the ground to ensure that everything runs smoothly. This is also the responsibility of their respective association.
Mentors act as helping hands and can answer most questions and are made up of students who are already studying. Their primary task is to make you, the new student, feel welcome and have fun.
It can feel like a jungle of new information and things you don't know before the inspark, that's why there is an inspark guide for all new students. The inspark guide contains all the useful information you will need. The Insparks Guide can be found here [insert link to Insparks Guide]
If you have any questions about the inspection, please contact the SKS, Major General, Generals or Cadets !
