TUAS Students’ May Day


“Vappu” is the Finnish version of May Day. Traditionally, this spring festival is celebrated especially by students – and this year, student organizations at TUAS and Student Union TUO are working together to create a great Vappu for all TUAS students!

The start of Vappu takes place at the 30th of April on the Samppalinna hill, starting at 13:00. The program is very informal, so you can grab your friends and a picnic basket and join us for a nice day in good company.

The student organizations are giving out some goodies every half an hour – so you may want to take your own cup with you and follow the Facebook event closely to get all the information.

At 16:00, the chairperson of the representative body of Student Union TUO will give a speech, and at 17:00, we will move to Student Union TYY’s Vappu celebration at Taidemuseonmäki.

After that, you can come back to the campus of Sepänkatu to grill your own food.

On the first of May, you can join the huge picnic on the Vartiovuori hill at 12:00.
