October is here and with it a lot of different activities. Here are some of the chosen highlights!
4.10. Sporticus’ autumn trip
Sporticus organizes an autumn trip with fellow members of Sporticus! The trip starts from Kampuksen kenttä (Campus court), and with bicycles we’ll proceed to the Haukanniemi. At the end of Wilhelm Schildtinkatu we’ll leave our bikes behind and continue the trip by foot. In the final destination of the trip there is a campfire site. Therefore you can take sausages and other food along since we’ll set up a campfire. Sporticus will offer some light snacks to each participant!
Are you too busy to enter the start at 4pm (16.00)? No worries, we’ll put the route below. So you can join later on to the trip as well! The ending schedule is estimated, the trip will last as long as participants are having fun.
Route: Kampuksen kenttä – Keskikatu – Jyrsijänkatu – Voionmaankatu – Vesangantie – Nisulankatu – Wilhelm Schildtin katu. We’ll leave bikes at the end of the Wilhelm Schildtin katu, and carry on by foot to the campfire site. We’ll try to put signs to the trail, so you won’t get lost!
Legendary JYY-Cooper is here again!
In the easy going sports event people run for 12 minutes in the campus field in five different starts:
Every runner has a lap counter to keep track of how much they’ve ran. Music is being played during the runs to keep up the good atmosphere and before each start there’s a guided warm-up. The last start at 6pm is the most relaxed ”fun-round” and based on the request by the Subcommittee of Sports of JYY the music during the round is only songs performed by the legendary Finnish artist Tommi Läntinen.
You can also get a mark for the optional sports course (YLIY) by participating JYY-Cooper.
5.10. Kauppakadun aprobatur.
Kauppakadun Approbatur is the biggest student party in central Finland gathering students from all over Finland to Jyväskylä. This year the event will take place on Thursday the 5th of October!
The idea of this event is that participants carry out a playful degree. Everyone will be given a map and a diploma (’study record’). In this diploma you will collect stamps (’credits’) by visiting and having a drink in different downtown bars and restaurants. You have a free entrance to all of the participating bars, and the drinks have a fixed price everywhere.
The night will end at the after party which will take place in Paviljonki.
NOTE: tickets are already sold but if you want to participate send a message to this facebook event and tell than you would like to buy a ticket.

The fall has begun and winter is on its way to dear Jyväskylä.

But 3miot will bring the Suomi100 -parties near you, so you can participate into celebrating Finland’s 100th birthday!
