A university in Lund, Sweden. It is among the largest in sweden, with 34000 students, 3200 of which are graduate students (year 2000).

Lund University was founded in 1666, as a way of reducing the Danish influence in Scania after it had been conquered in 1658. The university's logo dates from this time: a lion holding a book and a sword, symbolising the two ways to mold former Danish citizens into proper Swedes. When in 1997 a change to a more modern logo was proposed, general outrage followed.
