The end of an era – the Friday Club: State of Mind is approaching its end.
Dear students, the rumor you’ve heard is correct. Värmlands nation has its very last Friday Club: State of Mind this semester. More specifically, we have the last club on June 2nd.
But every end is a new beginning and we are currently working on a new fresh and better club, ready to be presented to all students in the fall of 2017.
Don’t worry, there is no way that we would end such a long going tradition without bringing something new and better to the world. After all, what would Uppsala student life be without Fridays at Värmlands?
The club has been around for over 50 years and many students, old and new, have at least once visited the Friday club during their time in Uppsala. There have been many different versions of the club at Värmlands over the years and ‘State of Mind’ is undoubtedly one of the more successful versions of the Friday club. ‘State of Mind’ has also been around for 7 years, which is a much longer time than a club is expected to survive.
For a long period of time there have been talks about updating the club and we started working on this project in 2016. However, the real work started in the spring of 2017 when a club group, consisting of four people, was elected by the management team. The task of this group is to launch a new version of the club which undoubtedly is a difficult task considering that the club has been around for over 50 years. The group consists of a mix of experienced and young nation members.
We are planning to launch the new club in the fall of 2017.
The project is unquestionably one of the bigger ones in progress right now. We are excited about this and looking forward to see what the club group is planning, and hope that all of you are equally excited.
The date for the first club will be announced in the summer and it is without a doubt something you wouldn’t want to miss.

See you at Värmlands!
