Mission Statement:

Our mission is to be a diverse organization which seeks to increase community appreciation of Scandinavian cultures by celebrating them in ways that are not only educational, but also are fun. We will meet these goals by incorporating a variety of students, which will include, but not be limited to, speakers of Scandinavian Languages, exchange students from Nordic countries, and students pursuing Scandinavian studies, and by working in concert with the Scandinavian Program of the Germanic Languages and Literatures Department. Club meetings will take place on a monthly basis, and, through social and educational events, we will keep our members actively involved with the public and with each other.
