miniKNB 2020


A miniature version of the legendary freshmen party KNB wishes all new students welcome to Turku University of Applied Sciences on January 22nd, 2020!

Is your suitcase bursting with hockey merch, or does your new Finnish friend own a ski suit straight from the 80s? Rock your hottest winter sports gear – the theme of miniKNB party is Winter Games!

MiniKNB starts off from the inner courtyard of Sepänkatu campus. From there all brave racers start going through checkpoints around central Turku. Your goal is to reach nightclub Vegas. At the checkpoints you'll get to do fun challenges. The team who does best in the challenges will be rewarded at the afterparty!
Freshmen from years gone by are welcome to take part in miniKNB as well. The teams will not be mixed up.

Signing up for miniKNB starts on at 2pm on Monday, January 7th. Gather a team of 3 to 6 people and pick a captain. You must write the name of the captain when signing your team up.
You can sign up alone or with a smaller team as well as the smaller teams will be combined with each other.
Early bird afterparty ticket sale starts at 2 pm on Monday, January 14th. The ticket ensures a patch to you if you grab it at the starting event or at the afterparty before 11pm.
The sale ends at noon on January 22nd or when the event is sold out.

The start is at the inner yard of Sepänkatu campus at 5.30 pm. The event starts at 5 pm and the checkpoint maps are given after the Oath of the Freshman from 5.30 pm to 6 pm.

Tutors arrange challenges in 6 checkpoints and your task is to get the highest score you can by performing them!
You have from 5.30 pm to 10 pm to perform them.
The checkpoint maps are collected near the cloackroom at the afterparty from 10pm to 11 pm. The winner team is rewarded at Vegas’ dancefloor at midnight.

This year you have the opprtunity to partake in a miniAppro! As in the freshman party this appro is done by collecting 6 stamps from the checkpoint restaurants by buying a drink or food. Those who collect 6 stamps will get a super awesome miniAppro patch!

Doors to Vegas open at 22 pm. Anyone can join the afterparty and grab themselves the amazing miniKNB patch!
