Akateeminen Aurajokilaivuritutkinto (AATU)

Thursday, May 16 - 12:00 AM-11:59 PM


As always, Luuppi will organize a trip to the legendary AATU on May 16th!

AATU (officially Akateeminen Aurajokilaivuritutkinto) is all about appreciating the wonderful riverside in Turku and also about celebrating the beginning of the summer holidays. Compared to other student events, AATU has its very own, unique and relaxed atmosphere as the participants meet up with friends to enjoy the springtime with some drinks. Traditionally, the Rector of the University of Turku declares the summer holidays officially started at the beginning of the event. AATU is something every student in Turku should experience.

All restaurants that take part in the event are included in a special degree map that is handed out to each participant when you register on the day of the event. The degree map is in effect a map of the Turku riverside with participating restaurants clearly highlighted. Based on the amount of stamps collected from each restaurant you have visited, you earn a degree of either Matruusi (6), I Perämies (9) or Kapteeni (12). For the frequent river farers, there are also special degrees to strive for.

This year's after party place is Utopia.

The preliminary schedule for the day:

10:00 The bus departs to Turku
13:00 Pre-party picnic with Asteriski and Delta
14:00 Official event start
21:00 Afterparty
02:00 The bus leaves to Tampere
