1. Council elections - stand as a candidate 18 September - 9 October

You can now stand as a candidate in Council elections on 18 September (at 9am) - 9 October (noon). 21 members will be elected to the Council. You are eligible to vote and stand as a candidate in Council elections if you've paid the Students' Union membership fee and registered as an attending student in TAMK.

In order to stand as a candidate, you need to fill out a candidate notification on our website or a paper form at Tamko's office. Also, remember to sign up to an election list. Please note that Council's working language is Finnish. Tamko has got an info about the following lists: Insinööri (engineering students' list), SoTen Valitut Palat (social and health care students' list) and Palvelualan ammattilaiset (hospitality management students' list).

 

2. Tamko's autumn campaign - Remember to renew your student card sticker!

Student card's green sticker (study year sticker) will be valid until 30 September 2019. If you don't want to be surprised at a lunch line on next week by not getting the discount from your lunch, we highly recommend to renew the sticker this week. By renewing your sticker, you'll also automatically take part in Tamko's autumn campaign where you'll have an opportunity to win a 100€ S group gift card!

3. Blood donation at TAMK 2 October

Once again it's the time to give up some blood when FRC Blood Service comes to TAMK. On Wednesday, 2 October between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM, come to the main campus (building B next to the dining area) and reach your helping hand! This event is accessible, so you can get to the place with the elevator.

If you're unsure about your eligibility to donate, you can take an online test here (choose "In English" in the top left corner) and the momentarily blood need you can check here. Bring your ID card with you, because a student card isn't enough. You'll also need a Finnish social security number so that you can donate!

You can also get a stamp on your Tursaspassi from the event!



4. Tolu's weekly sports shift 1 October

Tolu organizes a 2-hour drop-in sports shift every Tuesday from 5PM - 7PM at TAMK's sports hall. We'll play a different sport each week and on next time it's going to be badminton!

All TAMK students and staff are welcome to join, and there is no skill requirements. We just want to get you moving. We provide all the gear except for your sports attire and indoor playing shoes. You don't need a SportUni membership in order to attend, just say to customer service desk that you're coming to Tolu's sport shift.
