Why hello there! Glad you came around to check out the latest issue of "What's Poppin' in TaSciEn"! Your Editor-In-Chief here has been on fire recently, catching up on all the article deadlines to provide you with only the best and spiciest content!
It would be an understatement to say that of all months of the year, April is the favorite month of any teekkari and fuksi alike. Why, might you ask? Five letters. Two weeks. Dozens of events. Metric tons of alcohol. Have you guessed yet? Why, yes, of course I am talking about Wappu! The last two weeks of April mark the biggest celebration of teekkari culture all over Finland, which culminates in fuksi dipping, a once-in-a-lifetime event for any technical student. Students unite to delay the impending (and sadly inevitable) collective hangover of May the 2 nd , with jallu as the only cure and salvation.
However, Wappu is known as a cultural event not only for the drinking that ensues, but also for various events organized by the student guilds and clubs. This year being the first Wappu for TaSciEn, we have also organized our very own Wappu event as well! Seeing how Easter happens during Wappu, we felt like some old-fashioned Easter egg scavenger hunting was in order. Hence, the hunt for the Easter bunny began!
Our members have once again demonstrated their incredible endurance, intelligence and wit while exploring the Hervanta campus and gathering the clues necessary to complete the hunt. The stakes were high, the competition tough, but the enticing price of a big, mean, sexy, fat chocolate CHUNGUS of a bunny kept people going. Winners snatched their victory by a tight margin, showing commendable sportsmanship. Still, all the participating teams did very well and TaSciEn plans to make the event better, faster and stronger next Wappu! Until then, stay tuned!
