As Wappu is drawing closer, lots of things are happening. Hope you’re all doing well, and I’ll see many of you at the upcoming events!
Most important this time:
– Come to the Spring info session next Thursday at 16:00
– Save the following dates: 27.3., 4.4., 5.4., 20.4. and 29.4.
– Sign up for a museum tour!!
Museum visits are here! They will be arranged online during February and March. You can book a time from the link below. More times will become available later. For now the museum tours are organized remotely, in March there may also be tours in person. Please note that about 1000 fuksis are attending, so choose a time that you can surely attend! Changing the time you’ve already booked will be a lot of work. Museum visit is a compulsory fuksi point that you have to complete to get your teekkari cap on the possible wappu!
You can book a museum tour here.
The museum tour is the one point you absolutely need to have to get the cap!!
The craziest downhill race is here again!
On Shrove Tuesday (1.3.) it’s time to find you something that passes for a sled and head on over to Kaivopuisto park, Helsinki! Students from all over are showing up for an action-packed afternoon outdoors – so why not you as well?
The most daring and ambitious ones take part in the legendary Academic Downhill Race, where teams pilot their home-made sleds in the hope of winning the grand prize! Sleds and teams are judged not only on their run’s distance, but creativity and showmanship as well.
After the amazing afternoon sledding the action continues with the Laskiaisappro Pub Crawl where you can slalom through downtown Helsinki touring bars all the way to the official afterparty Gravitaatio!
WHAT: Laskiaisrieha 2022
WHERE: Kaivopuisto park, Helsinki
