International Vappu

TYY together with International Office is inviting international students for International Vappu.

See what else happens during Vappu

Keep calm and pick up your trash

To prevent littering, the TYY Environmental Wing will organize a “SiistiVappu” campaign to remind and encourage students to take care of the environment even during the vappu festivities. 

The TYY Environmental Wing is arranging a picture competition, with the hashtags #siistivappu and #siistiturku, and will reward the best pictures with prizes after the vappu week. The Wing will choose the best picture, which will reward with a gift card to Luomukassi (20€). We will also reward the picture, which gets the most likes with a prize bag from Ruohonjuuri.

What to Do Before Going Home?

Dear Exchange Students, time has passed quickly and it is soon time to say good-bye. We would like to remind you of some important matters to take care of before you leave.
