Why become a volunteer?

Getting involved in the student life of Lund is something you must not miss during your studies here! As a volunteer at the K-guild, you get to put a silver lining on everyday life of all the members of the Guild while getting the chance to meet new people, have loads of fun and learn things that neither Stryer nor Chemical Processes can teach! Pick and choose among the various committees; Do you want to organize sports events or parties, write articles for the Guild's newspaper, develop the website, work with study monitoring or learn more about business contact? Regardless of interest and how little or how much time you want to spend, there is something for everyone!

What does it mean to be a volunteer?

As a volunteer, you are part of a committee during one year together with other people interested in exactly the same things as you. In total, there are 159 volunteers in 17 different committees at the Guild. The work varies in the different committees, but it is common to meet with the committee once a week and together plan and organize events during the year. Some committees work a lot during short periods of the year, while some committees have a more evenly distributed workload. You can read more about the committees and all the volunteer positions at the committee pages.

Tips from the Election Committee

1) For almost all volunteer positions, you do not need to have any prior knowledge at all. What distinguishes between the candidates is therefore how much they know about the position they are applying for. Therefore, be sure to read on the website and talk to those who have had position before so that you know what you are getting into!

2) Be as specific as you can when answering questions in forms and in interviews. Everyone can say they are good at something, so give examples!
