Calling all alumni, please share with us your funniest, most exciting or most touching memories of the University of Oulu!

The alumni are an important part of the University of Oulu’s 60-year history and so, during this anniversary year we want to collect the best memories of their study years. Alumni are all graduates of the University of Oulu who have completed a degree (Bachelor, Master, Licentiate, Doctor, Specialist) or an MBA or an eMBA. Whether you have graduated recently or fifty years ago, you are one of our nearly 60,000 alumni who are using their expertise in the Oulu region and the rest of Finland, as well as globally.

Can you remember well-known scientists or memorable teachers at the University of Oulu? Are you still haunted in your dreams by a difficult course or an exam? Was a particular student café or a restaurant your usual hangout? Were you active in your subject association or a student union? Do you still regularly meet your former student friends in alumni or annual course meetings? Please tell us!
