Finnish Students Club
Finnish Club is an extra-curricular student association where Finnish Studies students can meet one another during the academic term. The club is led by visiting graduate students from Finland, Finnish Studies alumni or some of our active program students.
During the weekly or bi-weekly meetings, students work on their Finnish homework together, and for example, play games, watch Finnish films and TV shows, listen to music and often just spend time together and chat while drinking coffee and tea. We also cherish Finnish traditions and, for example, watch the Finnish Independence Day reception on TV on 6th of December and organize a traditional Vappu picnic in May.
During the last few years we have also regularly organized virtual coffee hours, Kahvitunti, with students of the Finnish Studies program at Indiana University, USA.
By generous donations from our local Finnish community, we are also able to offer our member students Finnish treats. The club operates bilingually and Finnish is spoken as much as possible but is not a requirement. We also warmly welcome visitors and friends.
