The Freshman pass is JAMKO’s event pass, which is distributed to first-year students and encourages them to get to know student events, new people and the city’s services.
Freshman passes are distributed during the orientation week. If you do not receive your passport within a week or lose your passport, you can receive a new one from our office, according to the office hours. Stamps on a lost passport will not be replaced.
Stamps are collected in the pass (1 stamp / box). Once you have collected a sufficient number of stamps (10), of which at least 4 are event boxes, you will receive a unique freshman overalls badge. When you have a total of 15 stamps, of which at least 5 are event boxes (4 events and 1 wellness event), you will only receive a Super Add-on for your freshman badge which will be distributed to a few and selected ones. You can get badges for as long as we have them.
You will receive stamps from the events on site, but in other cases you will need to prove your performance for the stamps. Proof of performance is done by showing a picture (e.g. a selfie) of you performing a given task. The picture must be shown at JAMKO’s office to JAMKO’s member service advisor during office’s opening hour. She also has every power to reject the performance if she feels that there is something suspicious in the image.
The Freshman pass underwent a reform for the Autumn of 2022. We are collecting pros and cons from this reform so that we can develop our freshman pass in a better direction. If you have any questions, concerns, complaints or even praise, all of them can be sent to vpj (at) jamko.fi or anonymously via JAMKO’s feedback channel
When you get your passport full, return it to the JAMKO office on April 28, and you will participate in a raffle for great prizes.
