Be Grateful For Swedes Bearing Gifts

Not all Swedes are blond, but all Swedish university students belong to a guild for their particular major. The guilds are provided spaces that they remodel into meeting areas and lounges, some of them are very, very nice, with kitchens, bars, banquet tables, and great views!

Each major/guild has its own distinctive cap. They are all the same style but the color varies by field of study. The cap in the photo above is for the School of Technology and Society, Malmö University, Malmö, Sweden. Malmö is in southern Sweden across the Øresund from Copenhagen. I have a cap. It was a gift from Anders Hedlund and Anders Roos. The following link is to a series of pictures about the Swedish students and the Cap. I had them on another site but decided to move them to the blog. I will post a permanent link in the right column. Our friend Moni is probably the only one of you who has seen these.
