Guests from Latvia

11 September 2019 by Kristaps Kovalonoks
Now that the new academic year has begun, life at UTU campus is busier than ever. The city of Turku is full of students and there are different events happening every single day. In fact, summer was quite the opposite: it was very quiet, and streets of Turku seemed empty, as most students had returned to their home countries, travelled or worked somewhere other than Turku. During the last days of August, from 28.-29.8., I was hosting guests from Rīga Stradiņš University Student Union. What a fun and learning experience that was! They traveled all the way from Latvia to come and visit members of the Student Union of the University of Turku.

As this gym is found right on the main campus, it is very popular with students from both universities.

Hello all!

It is my great pleasure to announce that we (me and Jonathon) have teamed up to work together on a series of blog articles about Campus Sport’s gyms. The idea is quite simple: we will visit different gyms (5 altogether), spend a few days or even weeks at every one of them, and then describe our experiences by listing the positive and negative things.

Go With The Flow

Campus Sport is the sports service for students and staff at UTU. You have to be a member to participate, but students can sign up for €65 per year, making it much more friendly towards a student budget than a private gym membership (which typically start from €20 per month in Turku). There are five gyms and four sports halls across the city, so there are no excuses not to get involved! Continue reading
