At the Carnival, both new and old students of the University of Helsinki will get a chance to explore the diverse range of organisations operating under HYY. Come find yourself a new hobby organisation, get to know your subject or faculty organisation and join a student nation – you can do all this in the same place during the same day! At the same time, you can also meet new friends and add to your overall badge collection.
HYY organises the Opening Carnival to open the academic year on at 2-6 PM on Monday 5 September at the City Centre Campus!
Come and learn about organisational activities, meet your Student Union and the University’s actors, add to your overall badge collection and take in the music, good atmosphere and diverse supplementary programme. The programme is organised in Kaisa House, Porthania, Think Corner and in the outdoor area of the City Centre Campus.
The main act will be the amazing ILON – the Carnival will culminate in their performance on Porthania’s outdoor stage!
Note that there can be changes made to the programme!
