What is the Science Students' Ball?
The Science Students’ Ball is UTN’s most elegant event of the year. It is a ball that has traditionally occurred every second year since 1985. Since 2020 the ball will occur every year. At the Students’ Science Ball, students, professors and union officials sit together to enjoy a fantastic three course dinner. During the evening several toast and speeches will be held along with entertainment of high quality. The Pedagogical award and the Medal of Merit will be awarded. The Pedagogical award is given to a lecturer who has impacted the students during the year and is nominated by the students. The Medal of Merit is given to a person who has done important work for UTN. The evening ends with an after party. Unfortunately, the Students’ Science Ball of 2021 was cancelled due to Covid-19.
The ball pub
The ball pub is an event that occurs before the actual ball. Usually it takes place in the middle of January at Uthgård, where you can buy delicious food, eat and socialise among candlelights in the winter darkness. If you are lucky, you might be fortunate and get one of the first places to the ball, since the pub usually is the occasion when the ball tickets are released. On top of this, you often have the chance to win a fine price in the pub quiz
