Join the Committees!


Are you inspired by event production, environment, activities in student organisations or development cooperation, for instance? Get involved with HYY’s committee activities! In the committees, you get to do things that interest you and meet new people. New members’ evenings are organised in February and March, but everyone is definitely welcome to join the action at any time!

Student Organisations Committee

What on earth is the Student Organisations Committee and what does it actually do? Can I have a say on what the Committee does this year?

You will get an answer to these questions by coming to the Student Organisations Committee’s new members’ evening at 5.00 pm on 18 February in Topelius (Central Office, New Student House, 2nd floor). Come and learn about the activities of the Student Organisations Committee and meet its members in a relaxed fashion! You can also take part in low-threshold brainstorming for the upcoming year’s events for organisational actors.

Do not hesitate to join us!
