What happens on the University Hill, doesn't stay on the University Hill!
The new academic year starts with a traditional Opening Carnival organised by the University of Turku and the Student Union (TYY) together. In celebration of the 100th anniversary year of TYY, the carnival is organised in The Old Great Square (fin. Vanha Suurtori), where all townspeople will also get to know what TYY and the University are all about.
In the carnival, new students get to meet different organisations and enjoy a fun programme, which includes welcome speeches from the Rector and the chair of TYY's Executive Board, awarding the teacher and course of the year, musical performances and other sTYYlish festivities.
In case of rain, the event will be moved indoors in the Educarium building. The possible change of plans will be posted in TYY's and the University's social media pages at latest on the morning of the event day.
