Student's best friend Vappu is just around the corner!
The First of May or "Vappu" is the Finnish version of Labour Day that we celebrate to honour working people. It is also the biggest student festival of the year, bringing together tens of thousands of students and other citizens of Turku. This year First of May is celebrated remotely via TYY's social media websites. Follow updates on the celebration in TYYlikäs vappu 2020 Facebook-event and on Instagram @studentuniontyy.
