12.10. Condus Amazing Race

Yes! Amazing Race is here again and we once again  will see who is the fastest and brightest of them all. Teams of 4 to 6 people compete to follow tricky clues and find their way to checkpoints all over Helsinki. Teams should sign up on an online form, which opens on the 30th of September at 12:00 sharp. Be fast – only the first 120 teams to sign up can compete.

Alternatively, you  can also be a part of the spectacle by volunteering to man one of the checkpoints, or by giving us a hand in the preparations. Contact our Event Committee at tapahtumat[a] to find out what you can do to make Amazing Race happen!

4. List of links concerning students’ interests

Have you ever desperately tried to find a piece of information from Flamma or from the University website, but your struggles have been in vain? Don’t worry, so have we. The Flamma search function works poorly, and the information is organised rather unintuitively. We have decided to fix this by putting together a list of the most important links on Flamma and elsewhere on the ‘net. Save this list in your bookmarks, and the amount of Flamma-induced frustration will instantly be cut in half!

If you feel that something important is missing from the list, let us know at edunvalvonta[a] and we’ll add it.

5. New name for the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences

Psychology, cognitive science, logopedics and phonetics will me moving on to new faculties soon. Due to this, the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences proposes to change the name of the faculty. You can vote for the name option you think is most suitable on this form:

6. Freshman photo competition

Freshmen! There is still time to enter the competition for the best freshman photo! Post your pic on Instagram with the hashtag #condusfuksi16 by the 14th of October. In addition to fame, glory and universal respect, the winner will be awarded a set of Condus overall patches.

7. Condus Equality Day

Equality Day for all of the Faculty of Behavioural Sciences will be held in November! The events for the day are currently being planned, so come join the EquCommittee and bring in your ideas.
And what does equality mean? Equal opportunities, equal worth, fairness and freedom from discrimination, for everyone. If any of these things interest you, come to the next Equality Committee meeting on the 10th of October at Conddoori!
