weekly report


Dear IT students,
this Thursday spring will officially enter our lives (despite the neverending rainy mood of Gothenburg…) as well as we’re taking our first steps into this year’s conclusion. As you may know, nominations for next year’s Göta and its sections board are still open so you can run to be elected and carry on what Göta strives for in order to improve all your students’ lives. In the meantime, we sincerely hope that our everyday work will bring its results in the near (and remote) future to make your stay here in the IT faculty as enjoyable as possible. But hey! We’re still far from being gone, and there’s still loads of things to go! Take a look at all our recent and coming stuff!

your friendly neighbourhood IT section’s board: Verena, Johnny, Alena, Snezhina, Stefano

6th Board Meeting
Our last board meeting took place in Heaven (yeah, you read it right) on Friday. Aside from sacred issues and stuff, we had time to talk about planning a kick-ass Kickoff event for next year, a kick-ass Kickout event in June, as well as Verena’s trip to meet Austrian Student Unions this weekend so we can exchange ideas about organization and management. A kick-ass meeting, definitely.

Workshop about Excellent Teachers
On Thursday March 14th your board members went to the lovely Ågrenska Villan at Johanneberg to discuss about what it takes to be an excellent teacher. It’s been a useful and inspiring meeting where we had the possibility to brainstorm different perspectives from us students and professional teachers about what pushes (and pull) beginner and expert teachers to pursue excellence, and what excellence should mean.

Wanna join us for the next workshop about collaboration with external organisations in April (and - let’s be honest - have an awesome lunch)? Then write to us at for more info!
