Student initiative tells the history of Campus Helsingborg
Campus Helsingborg is celebrating 20 years and the jubilee year officially started today. Rector Annika Olsson welcomed students and staff to take part in the upcoming events, to enjoy cake and coffee, as well as to listen to live music and look at an exhibition by one of our students, Victor Agbebo.
Victor Agbebo is an international student from Ghana, studying the masters program in Service Management Retail. Victor took the initiative to create an exhibition about Campus Helsingborg and its history. As a new student he was surprised about how little information he could find about the venue and his curiosity to know more about the history of Campus Helsingborg sparked his idea for an exhibition to tell other students about the former Tretorn factory.
Victor has put in a lot of hard work in the project and besides learning more about Campus Helsingborg, he highlights the joy of knowing people in the corridors that he previously just passed by.”By this project I met a lot of people that I would not have met otherwise. The fact that I was able to take this exhibition from an idea to reality shows that there is a creative room and space for students to contribute at Campus Helsingborg.”
In the welcoming speech Annika Olsson also encouraged more students to co-create the content of the jubilee. Victor also gives some advice on this.”If you have an idea, it can be difficult to know where to start, who to talk to and where to go. If you don't know, my advice is just to start. The most important thing is to find the right person to share your idea with, someone who will encourage you”.
Victors exhibition can be found at U2 at Campus Helsingborg and more information about the events of the jubilee will be posted on social media.
