WEEKEND THESIS UNDERTAKING
13.-15.4. Kortepohja Student Village
Weekend Thesis Undertaking (WTU for short) is a weekend dedicated to writing your thesis. Why? Because peer pressure works! So take your laptop with you, bring yourself to Kortepohja, meet others who are also battling with their Master’s or Bachelor’s thesis, set a goal for the weekend and share it with the others. Then just get to work! On Sunday we will check how these goals were accomplished.

Wed 11.4. 16.30-18.30 Lea Pulkkinen auditorium, Agora
You are warmly welcome to the microplastic workshop organized by the UN association of Jyväskylä! We will learn about the microplastic problem and discuss how to reduce the amount of microplastic in our daily life. Workshop is in English, free of charge, and open for everyone. The event will start with a presentation by Samuel Hartikainen, researcher of microplastics in the University of Eastern Finland. After the presentation there is a possibility to ask questions!

HYMNS IN VAKKARI – TULUS’ NEW ALBUM CONCERT
Mon 9.4. at 19, Vakiopaine
Hymns in Vakkari? Yes, that’s correct! A new a cappella album by Tulus is now out, and you all have a chance to hear the latest songs! These hymns are far for traditional, which is why we chose a surprising location as well. How does a hymn sound as a tango or a folk song? Come and listen! Entrance 4€ (but you can try and bargain!).
