It is time to welcome all new international students to Åbo (Turku). This is also a special year for The Student Union of Åbo Akademi University who celebrates its centennial anniversary during 2019.
We would like to invite you to a big welcome party on the 6th of September. The event includes a seminar and dinner at our student house Kåren in Åbo. The opening seminar is filled with facts about Finland and the city of Åbo. The aim of the seminar is to, in a fun way, teach you about typical Finnish things and traditions.
After the opening seminars, the evening continues with a dinner or “sitz” as we call it in Finland. In short, a sitz is an academic table party. “Sitzing” or taking part in a sitz includes a three-course dinner, singing and toasting. A sitz is a wonderful opportunity to get to know people and learn about the Finnish students culture.
The event is for all international students studying in Åbo. The whole program is in English.
