Welcome to Stay Active! Kick-off event!

Do you wish to meet other international students, improve your study ability and learn ways to reduce stress during your studies? Do you enjoy outdoors and wish to explore your close-by nature on a fat-bike?

Come and join our Stay Active! -kick off event and spend an active afternoon in a near-by forest!

What is Stay Active? Stay Active events are organized by guidance services as part of the Talent Boost project. The focus of Stay Active events is on supporting your study ability and well-being.

Why? Getting to know other international students gives you the opportunity to make new friends. Cycling in nature is not only fun, it also increases well-being and reduces stress. During the Autumn term, you will get to know other fun activities, too! In our events, you will get to meet a career counselor, a sports coordinator and a study psychologist.

When? Our kick-off activity: Fatbiking in nature and getting to know others, starts from Linnanmaa, on 4th October, 13-16.00. We organize also two other events during the Autumn term (Copying wih Darkness 1st Nov and Stress Management 13th Dec) and a series of related activities during spring term. Information about events will be updated on our webpages closer to the events.

What do I need? We offer you fat-bikes, guidance and coffee for free, so you only need to show up in proper and warm outdoor gear. Of course you need an open-minded attitude for learning new things about yourself and your surroundings! We will send you a welcome letter closer to the date and you will then receive more specific information about the event and the gear you need.
