Stay active! - students ́ wellbeing in summer

Thank you for the summer 2020!
Stay active! -project staff wishes you all the best :)

Student Union ISYY organises this summer Stay Active! - students’ wellbeing in summertime -project with the funding from European Social Fund.

Project is organised at Joensuu campus and online between 22.6.– 31.8.2020. The events are open to all UEF students. Students of the Kuopio campus can also participate in online events.

The aim of the project is to support you in matters related to summer studies and working life, as well as to maintain the ability to study during the summer. Via project we also want to improve the community spirit of students. We organise i.e. small group guidances supporting your study ability and other activities that support the students’ wellbeing.

You are warmly welcome, the events are open for all students!

During the summer you can participate in:
- study groups: welcome to write your thesis!
- gentle workouts: group exercise classes are organised from Monday to Wednesday
- activities for better wellbeing: outdoor games (i.e. mölkky), local hiking and cooking

Feel free to invite your friend!

Study group

Is it difficult to start writing? Would you prefer the darkness of IT classroom? Is it easier to study outside of your home? 

We have a solution for you! 

Join our study group at ISYY office in Haltia. Take your notes, study materials and computer if necessary with you. We offer you a place to study, free electricity and some small snacks to keep you motivated. Instructions in the door of Haltia. 

Remember always:  
- wash your hands carefully when you come to study group and when you leave 
- if you feel sick you cannot come - only limited number of participants can attend at times 
- keep safety distance to others 
- Cough and sneeze into a disposable tissue and put the tissue in the bin immediately after use. If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve, not into your hands.

Say what?
Coffee break is a recurring online meeting for anyone to come and share news and socialize online in Discord.

That’s the spirit! Now that we are all encumbered with long-distance work and studies, it’s a good idea to take a break, and ISYY’s virtual café is a perfect platform for just that. Sadly, logistical issues prevent direct contact with our baristas and waiters but luckily technology is on our side, bringing our personal screens together into a shared living room.

Where then?
The café is online in Discord from Tuesday till Thursday at 11 am to 12 noon. This makes it possible to spend your lunch break or tea time together with your friends and fellow students as per normal - now for the first time between campuses as well! You can share your joys, worries, successes and feelings. Coffee break also offers an opportunity to share any questions or worries regarding your studies or life in general and we’ll do our best to help in finding answers.

Coffee break is online every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 11 am to 12 noon. Join now: Discord
