New at GH Nation

Welcome to Uppsala! Welcome to GH Nation!

As a new student in Uppsala, you will be called Recce which traces back from Latin and simply means new student. We have several events organized especially for you!

In the beginning of every semester there is a period called Inskrivning or registration, where we are open several hours every weekday just to answer all your questions or to help you become a member. Our International Secretaries and Recceförman or other active members of the Nation will try to help you settling in to Uppsala.

At the Inskrivning, you will be able to buy a GH-package which includes the tickets to the Reccemontagning and the Reccegasque as well as some GH merge.

At the Reccemottagning, GH Nation will present itself together with all its societies which organize some fun games and competitions. This will be wrapped up by a two course dinner with some speeches by the Curators and the Inspektor.

The Reccegasque will be your first gasque where we will be explaining all the weird traditions of Swedish formal events and the first time you can use your songbook and get a hang of the traditional songs!

The registration period at Gästrike-Hälsinge Nation opens at the beginning of the semester and we will give you the dates for both events as well as more information at the registration.

GH registration will have the following opening hours:

    • Monday, Wednesday and Friday: 11:00 – 15:00
  • Tuesday and Thursday: 15:00 – 19:00

Please bring an ID and a proof of registration at Uppsala University or SLU
