Events and trips

Close your laptop and relax!

JAMKO organizes plenty of events across a wide variety of fields. Members of the student union always receive a discount on event entrance fees! In parties and other events organized by the student union, you have many chances to get to know your classmates, and to meet people from other degree programmes, nationalities and cultures.

Freshman pass encourages new students to visit events and that way get to know new city and each other. Check out what is the deal with the Freshman pass!


The biggest events of the fall semester include the Opening Festival with its associated cruise and after party, Overall Oath party, the break-in party for brand new overalls and the Opening of the Christmas Party Season. Sporty Snowday is arranged in the Spring, whose cool, cooler and arctic after party is called Ice Bra. The final party of the semester will be celebrated before it is time to take a summer break.

In Autumn, at Freshmen Party Tursajaiset new students are initiated to their newly adopted student life and get to know the new city and school mates by doing fun tasks all over town. Tursajaiset has a specific theme every year, so preparation and dressing up as a superhero, zombie or your favourite movie character is a part of the fun!

At the Overall Oath Party, new overall owners swear a humorous student oath and get the overalls baptized, which guarantees that the student life will not dry up and shrivel.

The big celebrations and after parties of the student union are arranged at Bra2.

Laid back evenings and new friends!

JAMKO’s traditional Detention is arranged at Freetime, where it participants pursue great prizes in the legendary tournament of pub quiz. Recess combines different kinds of themed evenings and new activities. Every evening offers something fun and different to do. You can come with friends or alone, you are sure to meet new people. Recess – events are mainly free or at least affordable for students and always intoxicant free.

Eat Out Evening is spent relaxing and enjoying mouth watering student discounts at restaurant Revolution or Venn. Pre-time is place for you to participate the most wackiest games ever and win awesome prizes in different games. These playful competitions will be held in Freetime.


JAMKO and TimeTravels organizes a trip every semester to an interesting location on a student budget. When travelling with JAMKO you get to visit the picturesque St. Petersburg or magical Lapland. Trips are organized and guided in English. Trips are arranged in the spring and autumn semesters, but the number of people that can be accommodated is limited. The trips are popular and fill out quickly, so pay attention to JAMKO’s communication channels.


In the sporty events of JAMKO sweat flies and the mind is rejuvenated!
