Department Coffee Hour 19.4.

Hi, Guild members!

A couple months ago, we got to discuss common themes with the faculty of the department for the first time in a long while. And as it seems, we aren’t going to run out of topics to talk about in a while! This next Department coffee hour focuses on topics like the education portfolio renewal and the themes highlighted Stop Cutting Arts. Open discussion follows the more structured conversations.

So, we invite you to the Department coffee hour, a conversational event between the students and faculty of the Department of Architecture, in front of the A2 lecture hall in Otakaari 1X, on Tuesday 19 April at 3 pm.

You may also join the event via Zoom: https://aalto.zoom.us/j/66136657641, in which case the event starts at 3.10 pm.

Just as the name suggests, something small will be served at the Department coffee. If you want to express your thoughts in advance, you can share then on this Flinga board that will be presented during the event: https://flinga.fi/s/FBMPCTY

Welcome to the Department coffee, see the preliminary agenda below!

Stop Cutting Arts-discussion at Dipoli 20.4.

Dear ARTS students,

We have had a lively discussion around ‘Stop cutting arts’ recently. Thank you for it!

The Aalto university leadership has been asked to participate in the discussion, most recently in the Instagram discussion around our QS ranking success.

I have the pleasure of inviting you all to a discussion with Provost Kristiina Mäkelä, Vice President of Education Petri Suomala and Chief Financial Officer Marianna Bom on Wednesday 20.4.2022 at 10.00 on ‘Stop cutting arts’ themes.

The location will be Dipoli, Lumituuli-hall. There will be a webinar transmission of the event also on Zoom – so you can observe the discussion online (the Zoom link will be added to this invitation later). If you wish to actively participate, I’d invite to be present in Dipoli.

Hope to continue the discussion next week!

Wishing you all a relaxing Easter break,

Tuomas Auvinen

Tour de Walpuri

Tour de Walpuri arrives once again in all its true glory to shock, inspire and unite the whole Otaniemi nation and all Aalto-minded people on the 29th of April. During the evening, the entire Teekkari Village will be taken over by the most massive checkpoint tour of the Walpuri era without comparison. So make sure you haven’t mistakenly come up with anything else to do on 29.4.

The tour starts at 8pm after the Yöjäynä kick-off and lasts until late into the night. If you still have some juice left after the tour, you can continue the evening with the Wappu Festival organized by AaltoDJ and Pelmu.

Registration is not needed, just show up. The tour will happen in teams of 4–10 people. Checkpoint maps will be distributed around Otaniemi on the day of the event. The best teams will be rewarded with great prizes at the Declaration of Wappu rowdiness at Smökki on Wappu Eve. The best checkpoint will also receive free use of one of AYY’s one-off saunas for one night in the summer or autumn of the current year.

What: Tour de Walpuri

When: 29.4. from 20:00
