The Opening Carnival

The Opening Carnival is an event organised by the University of Turku and the Student Union of the University of Turku (TYY). The programme includes, for example, introductions by over 50 sub-organisations of the Student Union. In addition, different services of the University are introduced.

In the Carnival, the recipients of the Teacher, Course, and Language Deed of the Year are published. Moreover, there are speeches given by the Rector and Chair of the Student Union as well as music.

The Opening Carnival is celebrated at the square in front of Publicum and Educarium this year. If the weather is poor, the event is organised in the lobbies of Educarium and Publicum.
