Welcome Evening of OSAKO
September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Student Union OSAKO invites the new international students of Oamk and their tutors to the traditional get-together evening featuring a possibility to try a traditional Finnish wood-heated sauna and to swim in the chilly Oulu river! The evening starts at 6 pm and ends at 10 pm. OSAKO will be providing some snacks, but you can also bring your own food/bottle.
Please sign up for the Welcome Evening by attending the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/3131707226925282, so we know to buy enough snacks.
WHAT: Welcome Evening of OSAKO
WHEN: Tuesday, September 8th at 6 – 10 p.m.
WHERE: Myllyojan asukastupa (Myllyoja Residents’ House), address and map: http://goo.gl/maps/U6QFs
You can also ask your tutor to show you the way!
WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU:
If you want to go to sauna, you need to bring your own towel + a smaller one to sit on + swim suit in case you want to swim in the river. As you might know, the Finnish tradition is to go to sauna naked, women and men separately. If this makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t worry, you can wear your swimming suit or towel, if you wish. If you don’t feel like going to sauna or swim, you can just enjoy a nice relaxed evening in a great company.
Women’s sauna turn is from 7 PM to 8 PM
and men’s from 8 PM to 9 PM.

See you there!
