Hey you, are you ready to party from the bottom of the ocean all the way up to the foremast? Hämäläis-Osakunta nation’s autumn season will be opened on the 4th of October with an epic house party, and all students are welcome to join the party!

This time the house will transform into different levels of a pirate ship: you can play cards with the crew below the deck, dance on the deck to pirate themed songs and scope the horizon from the crow’s nest. A clever pirate may find hidden rubies from the ship, and the rubies are rumoured to play as currency with the ship’s crew…

The seaworthy price of the party is 3€, and you may enter with a valid student card/certificate from 22 PM to 2 AM. The cloakroom is free of charge and it’ll be guarded until 4 AM when the party ends.

The dress code is anything you might encounter inside a pirate ship: you might be a captain, a jellyfish, a seaweed or perhaps a mermaid.

We welcome you warmly, bring your crew with you!

WHAT: Hämäläis-osakunta’s Autumn Season Opening Party
FOR WHOM: for ALL students (with valid certification!)
WHERE: Urho Kekkosen katu 4-6, enter through two gates and an inner yard
WHEN: 4.10. from 10 PM to 4 AM, entrance until 2 AM
HOW MUCH: only 3€
WHY: because the season must be opened with style!!!





Fyysikkospeksi 2019 takes the viewer on a tour of recent history, to a small rustic town in the Finnish countryside, next to the middle of nowhere. The calm meandering passage of time seems endless until it doesn’t; levees protecting a harbored grudge break and long bottled resentment flows freely. An inexplicable source of darkness floats over the amber waves of grain. Ultimately, one question remains: which is thicker, blood or the murky muddy waters of the wetland?
