PATCH FAIR on October 13th

Do you need new patches for your student overall? Condus and other student organizations of our faculty organize Patch Fair on Tuesday 13th of October in Minerva (floor K1) from 10am to 2pm! We will also sell our superpopular songbooks for 8 €. Remember to bring cash.


CONDUS AMAZING RACE on October 14th (Full!)

Condus Amazing Race is a fun orienteering competition based on the TV show “The Amazing Race”. In this extremely popular event teams of 3 to 6 people travel around Helsinki and solve problems on the way. The first team that finishes the race wins a fabulous prize!


EQUALITY DAY on October 28th

CIRQUE DE CONDUS on November 5th

Lions are stalking in Minerva Square, a talking parrot is sitting in a house plant in Olivia, and fire artists are dancing through Siltavuorenpenger. This means that the circus is here – and so is the biggest sitsit Condus has ever organized!

Sitsit is an academic dinner party that includes a three-course meal accompanied by a lot of singing and toasting. Condus organizes sitsit at least twice a year, and this is an event you definitely don’t want to miss!

The circus tent will be set up in Casa Academica on the 5th of November, and the signing up for the event happens via an e-form that will open on the 14th of October.



Condus and SIK (the Guild of Electrical Engineering) will join their forces and organize sitsit in Otaniemi. More information coming soon!


Further information coming soon. Stay tuned!

3. Upcoming Condus board meetings

4. Replacement of the administration’s student representatives

Representatives of the student organizations had a meeting on the 5th of October and agreed on a proposal for administration’s student representatives for the season 2016–2017. The representatives will be announced later.

5. Join TaComo!

Do you have ideas on how to improve Condus’ events? Do you want to get experience in organizing academic dinner parties? Or do you just want to take part in smaller tasks such as crafting or selling tickets to parties? Whatever your interest is, you are welcome to join TaComo, the event organizing division of Condus!

In TaComo we brainstorm for new ideas and event concepts for Condus and help to carry them out, as well as the already existing events. By joining TaComo you can take part in Condus’ operations in a fun way and without commitments. This is also a great way to get to know our faculty’s students across study subjects.

Joining TaComo is possible at any time of the year and joining the Facebook group doesn’t require committing to anything. In TaComo you get to decide what and how much you want to do!
