Guild afternoon club today: Textile print workshop

In the first guild afternoon club we’ll be doing some textile printing at the Guild room! The board will bring some printing colors, so you only need to bring your own t-shirts or anything you want to give a touch of DIY. See you there!

Come and get to know our Danish guests!

This Thursday the Guild will receive some very special guests from Denmark! Welcome everybody in the Guild of Architecture to get to know our Danish guests from KADK, The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.

Campus Expo 2015

What is AYY? What are the activities of special status associations, such as the guilds or KY? What was that nice association that I visited at the Aalto Party? Do we have any tennis clubs? Who organises all the parties? What kind of working possibilities do AYY’s main cooperation partners Tieto and Capgemini have?

All of you freshmen, don’t worry, you will find answers to all these questions from one place – AYY’s Campus Expo!
Whatever is on your mind, please head to the second floor at Otakaari 1 at 10am-2pm on 22 Sept to see all that Aalto has to offer! All associations that operate within AYY are there to present their activities, so you might even find a new hobby for yourself ;)

This year, Campus Expo has a brand new concept; open house to guild rooms and KY’s Espilä! Bring your friends and have a look at the association facilities! The tour to the guild rooms will start at 4pm, the map will be published later in this event.

This year, Campus Expo is organised during Aalto Wellbeing Week, so check out what else will take place during the week! More information on Aalto Wellbeing Week is available at https://inside.aalto.fi/display/tapahtumat/Aalto+Wellbeing+Week+20.9.-25.9.2015.

Architecture students’ flea market

Empty your drawers and cabinets of clothing, drawing utilities, and all kinds of bigger or smaller stuff that has become useless for you. On Friday the 25th of September, the guild members gather on the 2nd floor at the department of architecture, for the architect students’ flea market. There you can sell your unnecessary things and/or check out what your fellow guild members have to offer!

Good vs. Evil Goes Doubletrouble

The year’s largest, most anticipated and awesome AK and Kannu traditional sitsi-party is here again – now more massive than ever! During the evening, the good will face its arch enemy and long lost allies will once again join forces! But the question still remains: who is good and who is bad?

This year Good VS Bad – goes DOUBLETROUBLE. In other words, the theme is teams! Who will you share your possibly last meal with, when magical powers build up under the same roof? Will you take your arch enemy with you for one final battle or will you spend the evening surrounded by friends, reminiscing in past adventures? Either way, grab your friend and put on your team costumes. You’ll be facing characters from different worlds, crossing disciplinary boundaries, so dive deep into your imagination and see you at Smökki!

Registration starts 21.9 at 12:00 at arkkitehtikilta.fi.

Akateeminen Wartti

Akateeminen Wartti is here again, so dust off your sneakers and gather your team together!

METKA and AYY will organize the 65th Akateeminen Wartti at Helsinki’s Olympic Stadium on 16.9.2015 as a part of Metrosport.

Akateeminen Wartti is a relaxed and action-packed relay-race. Over 15 minutes, teams try to run as far as possible and the person or team that got furthest wins! However, in the spirit of the competition, there will also be prizes for good team spirit and team outfits. So you can gather a team, for example, for your guild, student association, polytechnic or university fellow gang. Unlike last year, there’s also an individual series for both men and women. New things do not stop there, because this year’s games and fun will be held in accordance with the Color Run theme!
