Hallands nation was founded the 15th of October 1928, when a group of students decided to free themselves from Göteborgs nation. In memory of this glorious day, we are celebrating Hedviggillet, Halland Nations own birthday party, in the middle of October each year. Traditionally, students were required to be members of the nations whose area one came from, but this requirement is now a days gone. International students are also free to choose whichever nation they desire. Hallands nation started out with around 80 students but has now grown to a little less than members.
Halland nation is the nation for everyone. We have a mix of students from all faculties and it’s easy to become a part of the community. We have Studentlund loveliest pub atmosphere with more than 35 beers from around the world and approximately 24 brands of whiskey. On Wednesdays, we organize Pubquiz or show Champions league depending if there is a game on. On Fridays the cellar turns in to ‘Klubb 3′ with three bars and a fantastic range of drinks, cocktails and layered shots.
The ’Activity and well-being Committee (NATU)’ arrange social activities every second Tuesday and our sport committee [Spårt] provides sample sport activities every Thursday. They also organize Korpen-teams (for fun) in football, floorball and volleyball.
During the year, Hallands nation has a number of major festivities such as Novischfesten with the other Torna-nations in September, Hedviggillet in October, Bockbalen (the nations own ball) in March and Kvalborg in May.
On a day to day basis, Halland Nation is run by the Quratel. There are currently four full time employees, students just like you, who have now taken a sabbatical from their studies for a year. The Qurator has overall responsibility for the nation and leads The Quratel. The Proqurator economy is responsible for the nation’s economy and the Proqurator social has the overall responsibility for all activities in the basement, that is, a bar and kitchen operations. The Notarie is responsible for issues regarding studentcards, the nations paperwork and is also responsible for the marketing activites.
The Nation wouldn’t exist though without the Förmän and their workers. As a member you are welcome to join any of our committees or to try out working with a Förman in the kitchen or a bar.
