Invitation: HYY150 – 150 years of university community


HYY150 – 150 years of university community
Think Corner (at Yliopistonkatu 4), 3.30 pm–5.00 pm on 26 March

We warmly welcome you to celebrate 150-year-old HYY’s and 378-year-old University of Helsinki’s journey together at the Think Corner!

The Student Union, with its own anniversary year under way, is celebrating the University’s anniversary in a refreshing, cosy occasion on Monday, 26 March. There is a lot of shared history between 150-year-old HYY and the University of Helsinki, which will be remembered in upcoming events of the Anniversary too. But what will the next 150 years together bring along?

In the event, you will get to have a look at the contents of HYY’s Anniversary year and meet the influencers of the University community. Have your photo taken on a polaroid camera in front of the HYY150 photo wall, get yourself a HYY150 tote bag or overall badge, and send a letter to the student union of the future. You can also expect to hear some greetings and music.

The event is open to everyone. Welcome!
