Exchange students send greeting to UWindsor friends

The time she spent at the University of Windsor was her “best semester yet,” says Ida Karlsson, an exchange student from Sweden’s Jönköping University. In addition to her classes in communication, media, and film, she enjoyed the opportunity to see more of the Americas, visiting Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, New York City, Costa Rica, and Cuba.

As a memento of their Canadian adventures, Karlsson and some of her exchange friends now sport maple leaf tattoos on their wrists.

Exchange student asks, 'are Canadians really that nice?'

Swedish exchange student Ida Karlsson says she thinks of the stereotypical Canadian as helpful, apologetic, and nice.

Proof positive was when Karlsson landed a free ride from the Windsor International Airport to the University after chatting with a woman during her Windsor bound flight.

While at the University of Windsor, she will be taking classes and generating content for one of the busiest social media channels in the city — the University's.
