Morten Nitschley, head of the secretariat CBS Students – What do you like about Danish winters? I like when it snows and I can go skiing. And I like the different seasons as a whole.
Jytte Jürs, Campus Services – What do you like about Danish winters? Feeding the crows. We’ve been doing that for 20 years. They’re very intelligent and tap on our windowpanes when they want food. That’s winter for me!
Johann Wandschneider, BSc International Business and Politics – What do you like about Danish winters? It’s very dark outside and that’s actually the best way for me to work as much as possible and be productive.
Tine Simone Brizarr, event waitress, Spisestuerne – What do you like about Danish winters? I work very hard in the winter months, so I love coming home, putting my feet up and happily admiring my Christmas decorations with a glass of red wine in my hand. I love Christmas lights in this dark time of year.

Heidy Fu, MSc EBA: What are your plans for the summer? My initial summer plans were to go for a graduation trip abroad, but since that is currently not possible, we will just discover more of Denmark. And that’s nice.
Jack Kværnø-Jones, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? The original plan was a family gathering in Wales but that’s been interrupted by coronavirus. Quite disappointing. Now we are renting a holiday home by the seaside in Denmark.
Beata Maria Rasmussen, administrative officer, Financial Analysis: What are your plans for the summer?
We certainly won’t get to London as we had discussed, but maybe to Randers – the old Randers Hotel is really cozy – or the ’mountains’ of Mols or who knows, somewhere else entirely.
Jannick Friis Christensen, PhD Fellow, Department of Organization. What are your plans for the summer? I will have my PhD Defense at the end of June and embark on a new research project in August, studying pride as a public ritual and a socially-integrative ‘civil religion’. Other than that, my plan is to have no plans and see what comes my way.
Ditte Thøgersen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I’ll be staying at a holiday home with all four children and taking a trip to Jutland.
Guilherme Ghiraldi Simionato, MSc Customer & Commercial Development: What are your plans for the summer? We were excited to finish our thesis and were going to Africa for the summer. But coronavirus stopped our plans, so now my friends and I are going on a car trip in Denmark. That’s going to be amazing.
Sophie Marie Cappelen, PhD, IOA: What are your plans for the summer? I will be finishing my PhD in Norway, where I’ll be lucky enough to be spending plenty of time outdoors in the countryside.
COVID-WISE is a new project that aims to use an approach where little to no prior research exists to support short-term enterprises at CBS that are addressing Covid-19-related challenges.

And when COVID-WISE is launched in July, the aim is to have 30-40 cases and provide ECTS points.
Physical inactivity is a global health problem, according to the WHO.

The plan is to invite both students and CBS alumni to join in and help shape the project.
