ISYY’s Vappu Celebrations in Joensuu 2019

Wed Apr 03 13:43:00 2019

The highlight of the whole academic year, Vappu (May Day), will bring life to Joensuu by introducing a variety of events organised by ISYY and student organisations and clubs. 

Traditionally, the students’ Vappu celebrations begin as early as in the middle of April and will culminate in ISYY’s annual Vappu parade, washing the "Torso" and Vappu event at Ilosaari. 

Below, you can find a list of the Vappu activities and events on Joensuu campus organised by ISYY. Information on other events related to Vappu can be found on the Facebook event: Joensuun opiskelijavappu 2019, where you can find info also in English (link to the event below).
