Weekly Digest 5/22

Hi everybody! There’s an article about the new Aalto ARTS education portfolio renewal – you can find more info about from a link down below. And next about guild activities; if you want to make the first year of student life for the fuksi’s of 2022 – apply to become an ISO / BIG! (My very-much-biased opinion as an ISO of 2021: you should definitely go for it!!)
