Tamko’s Tursajaiset 6.9.

Traditional Tamko’s Tursajaiset is coming up! Event is free and meant for new students.

It’s that time of the year again where Tampere is full of new TAMK’s students, so called Tursas. It’s time for the Tursas shephards aka tutors to get to work and direct the lost Tursas into the Tampere student life. Tursajaiset is very traditional event since 2023 Tursajaiset are the 82nd Tursajaiset organised by Tamko!

This years Tursajaiset will be organised on 6th of September and the daytime activity is free for all new students. The event will start at 12:00 and this is when the new tursas groups will be formed and ready at TAMK’s main campus at the square near the Teiskontie’s entrance. From there the whole mass of new students will march towards Keskustori. At Keskustori the new students will pledge a vow called Tursas vow. After this the group will go towards the Tursasland, which is the location that will be revealed later.

At Tursasland, groups will go around doing different tasks together. The tasks will help the group get to known each others better! The group with the most points and best costumes will be awarded after the event.

The daytime activity of Tursajaiset will end at 19:00 (7pm) after which you can continue to afterparty, tickets and more info here!
