Endangered Guild Sitsit Party 25.1.

The strap of my backpack is gnawing on my shoulder. I have just arrived at a site not known for the mankind yet. When I left from beloved Otaniemi, I never would have believed I would end up here. I hope that my journey was not for nothing…

UNBELIEVABLE! I have found it! An endangered plant! The first proof that the humankind has not destroyed everything on the planet we live on. After my initial discovery I start to discover more and more endangered species. Can we save everything after all?

Sign up begins on Monday January 14th at 12:00
and ends on January 21st at 23:55, after which it becomes binding.

Apply to the AYY10 anniversary year section!

Apply to the AYY10 anniversary year section! Application period is open until 27.1.2019.

 Our beloved Student Union has been forging ahead for some years already, and we are soon celebrating our first full decade. Now is, at last, the time to start recruiting for the section many have been waiting for: the AYY10 anniversary year section!

 As the member of the anniversary year section, you will be part of conceptualising and executing the anniversary year and the 10th annual ball itself. Will the anniversary year feature separate anniversary year spectacles, or will the usual events be organised bigger than before and with an AYY10 twist? How can we make the entire community participate in the anniversary year? And in particular, of course: where and how to organise the culmination itself, the annual ball that ends the anniversary year? You will ensure that this party will remain a conversation point for the Aalto community for a long time to come!

 There will be about 6-10 persons appointed for section and responsibilities will be assigned based on applicants’ wishes and interests. This section will look like its members so don’t hesitate to apply! Members of the section will be appointed based on their applications and interviews.

 Greetings from chair of the section Titta Saari:

“My goal is to gather a section that represents everyone in Aalto community, and with whom we can make unforgettable anniversary year. In addition to organizing events there will be tasks for example in corporate relations and communications. More important than previous experience is the spirit and interest to do things together for the anniversary year. I recommend to apply!”

 Application ends on Sunday 27th January. Apply to make AYY history here: https://ayy.fi/stop/en/ayy10/ !

 Any questions? For more information, contact the Chair of  AYY10 anniversary section Titta Saari or Niina Palm, the producer of the Annual Ball (first.last@ayy.fi).
