Riina Lumme was elected Chair of the Student Union of the University of Turku Executive Board 2016. Lassi Laine was elected Chair of the Student Union Council.

Student Union Executive Board Chair Riina Lumme is a student of political science and active member of many organisations. She is a member of Torchbearers (Soihdunkantajat), which is politically independent group.  During 2015 Lumme served as a member of the Student Union Executive Board with responsibility for student culture and business cooperation as well as a chair of the University of Turku choir.

- As a chair of the Student Union Executive Board I would like to improve the cooperation between the University and the city of Turku. Together we can make Turku even better place to study where higher education and students are seen as a resource, not as a mere expenditure, says Lumme.

During 2016 TYY will get prepared for Finland’s best student election campaign for 2017’s municipal elections. Another important event will be Ylioppilastalo A building’s renovation, which begins in spring.

-For me it is important that TYY can maintain effective lobbying and service for its members during renovation and moving. After renovation I hope TYY’s premises will be more welcoming for its members and actives, Lumme hopes.
