Flogsta Scream

File under: Local traditions.

Every evening at approximately 10 p.m., the “Flogsta scream” (Flogstavrålet in Swedish) may be heard, when students individually or collectively let out screams and howls from windows, balconies and roof tops.

According to Uppsala University, the collective screaming acts as “a much needed safety valve” and “a cry of angst” for students stressed by the demands of university life.
