Time to take the days as they come
It doesn't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing. It could be a fitting description of Ulf Södervall's attitude to life. When he leaves Chalmers after 45 years, he gets more time to swing the golf clubs and live life. "I feel ready," he says.
We meet Ulf in his almost vacant office for a relaxed conversation about his career at Chalmers. After doing the military service in Dalarna and Linköping, the young Örebro son started to study technical physics at Chalmers in September 1975. Since then he has remained loyal to the university.
"It's really a little crazy that it's been so long. But now I feel ready, even though there are different aspects to it. I am prepared to live a little freer now, but will miss the environment and all the colleagues," he says.
