The idea with the freshman points is to get to know the “Teekkari” culture. Gathering points should be (and is!) fun!
If you, freshman, want to put the cap on your head at Wappu 2016, you have to show that you are worth the cap and show the ‘’Teekkari spirit’’. This means your have to complete the needed freshman points. You will gather the points in your personal Freshman Point Card, which you will get on the first week. You can earn these points from almost any event in Otaniemi or while learning about the Finnish culture, such as going to a sauna or watch an ice hockey match. If you don’t fulfill these requirements, you can still get the cap around Mother’s Day (second Sunday in May)
You can get the freshman points from the Head of International Affairs of the Guild of Mechanical Engineers, the Guild of Civil Engineers or the Guild of Surveying Engineers.
The compulsory freshmen points are:
Overalls are a symbol of students in different Universities and other schools in Finland. By the colour and text in the overalls, you can identify people from different schools and fields of study. The colour of the overalls of the Guild of Mechanical Engineers is pink and students get these overalls on the second day of Orientation week! The colour is unique and students of the guild are proud of wearing the overalls.
The best feature in the overalls are that they protect your clothes of getting dirty. They also are very comfortable to wear! You can buy your overalls from the Guild Room.
