Kalas historyShow/Hide content
It all started in 2005 on the initiative of Norrköping and Linköping municipalities, together with LiU. The Kalas event was then – and continues to be – the culmination of the welcome activities for new students at LiU. The programme always includes: an extensive fair at which student clubs and societies, together with companies, present themselves, a stage show with speeches and entertainment from clubs and societies, and an action-packed concert with top-quality performers!
