Presentation on theme: "EVERYTHING AND LITTLE MORE YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WAPPU 2010. Aura Liski sources:"— Presentation transcript:


2 WHAT IS WAPPU? Wappu is the biggest student party/event during one school year. It gathers all students (from different schools) to party together in various places. Traditionally Wappu descends from Labour Day (1.5.) celebrations, a day dedicated to all the workers around Finland (and other parts of the world). Nowadays the labour/worker thought is almost diminished and Wappu is generally thought to be a day of fun for all the people. !!! The official costume is naturally an overall!

3 Wappu traditions: Wappu magazines Wappu magazine is printed every year. Äpy (a magazine taking different shapes, e.g. cell phone replica) and Julkku (looks like traditional magazine) take turns every other year. In the spring 2010 it is Julkku's turn. Engineering students can earn pocket money by selling these magazines. The launch of the magazine is definitely a place to be!

4 Wappu traditions: 29.4. There are lots of parties around Otaniemi few days before Wappu, especially on 29th of April. These parties occur all around Otaniemi. On the night of 29th the phuksis begin their celebration by first having (weird) performances in Dipoli and then starting a competition continuing the whole night. Both the performances and the start of the competition are open for public.

5 Wappu traditions: 30.4. This is the day of never ending parties! The day begins early in the morning when the Teekkari caps are given to the phuksis. In the afternoon people make their way to the city centre because at 18:00 Manta, the statue of Havis Amanda is given a cap. The whole city is there with champagne bottles and high spirits! Go there!!! The evening and the night will continue in various parties. Normally mostly underaged teens stay outside and students go to different parties organised by student organisations and nations. Some people take it gentler, and have a good dinner at home or in a restaurant.

6 Wappu traditions: 1.5. On the first of May, all the students gather to Ullanlinnanmäki in Kaivopuisto to have picnic. There are different constructions from a mere blanket to a fancy three course meal with silver cutlery and long tables with a white cloth, or sofas and tents and flags. The park is like a colorful sea of white student caps, overalls in all possible colors and balloons. In the park you can find babies, kids, students, working people and pensioners-everybodys there. The same atmosphere, but in a smaller scale can be found in Kaisaniemi park, where the Swedish speaking students have met traditionally for the past 100 years or so.
