You can do the song test point in our farewell sauna 12.12. and I will inform about the museo tour later.

If you are going to accomplish all the points, let Ella know about it in telegram (ellaasikainen). If you accomplish the points now, it means that you have the possibility to get the cap next Wappu (1.5.). Usually the caps are posted by mail, or sometimes students come back to Finland to get it.

11 Fyysikkospeksi: Our hopes and expectations 19.11.

Fyysikkospeksi 2019 takes the viewer on a tour of recent history, to a small rustic town in the Finnish countryside, next to the middle of nowhere. The calm meandering passage of time seems endless until it doesn’t; levees protecting a harbored grudge break and long bottled resentment flows freely. An inexplicable source of darkness floats over the amber waves of grain. Ultimately, one question remains: which is thicker, blood or the murky muddy waters of the wetland?

12 Wappusimulator 30.11.

During the fall semester you have been introduced to numerous oddities of Finnish teekkari culture such as sitsit-party, sauna, sillis and checkpoint crawls but does it still feel like that something is missing? What is this mystical thing they call Wappu that might or might not be organized during spring?

Now that the semester is close to its end and some of you are returning to your home countries, the international committee is going to give you a first taste of this wonder of spring in a form of Wappusimulator checkpoint crawl! The event will take place on Saturday November 30th and is going to lead you through various checkpoints around Otaniemi introducing you to the wonders of Wappu. The event ends up in a farewell party for the international students in Rantasauna.

Registration will open on Monday 25.11 at 12:00 and the link for it will be posted here.

After party will be open for all.

The event is especially meant for the leaving exchange students but everyone is welcome to participate. 🙂

WHAT? Wappusimulator & farewell party

WHERE? Around Otaniemi. More info will be released later

When? 30.11. starting at 15

DC? Overalls/casual

WHY? Fellow students, Wappu & party ♥
