Condus’ Monthly Newsletter 9/2017

Welcome freshman 2017!

Condus warmly welcomes all the new freshmen! Condus is the interest co-operative interest organisation of the Faculty of Educational Sciences in the University of Helsinki. In other words we are a faculty organisation which includes as member organisations all the organisations in our faculty. By being a member of your own student organisation you are also part of Condus.

Condus takes care of the well-being, interests and amusement of its members in different ways. We aim at listening to our members as well as possible and actualising our activities from those starting points. You can contact Condus if you encounter unfairness or problems at the university, we will help! Condus also arranges many events, concerning parties, work life, wellbeing and sports, even across the sciences.

Taking part in the activity of Condus is easy. Tacomo is a group that allows you to take part in organising our events with just the effort you want. Additionally in Condus there are many different committees and teams, and you can get acquainted with their activities and take part without any commitment. If you’re super interested in the action, a new board for the following year will be elected always in the end of the current year. New actives are wanted always – you don’t need any former experience, enthusiasm is enough!

The board members of Condus will gladly answer all kinds of questions, you can send an email or come and say hi at Penkere. Hopefully we’ll run into each other and get to know better. Welcome once more!

In UP!pro students can try different sporty activities instead of bars in central areas of Helsinki. This year the selection includes trampoline park Rush, air yoga, and lazer tag in Megazone! Students from other faculties will be joining us in this event. So dress up in your world champion outfit on 12.9. at 10-16. The timetable of ticket sales is presented on the Facebook event.
