1. Advance booking of rentable facilities is ongoing: ends on 14 May for special status associations and starts on 15 May for others
The advance booking of AYY’s rentable facilities, also known as tilakähmyt, has started for associations. As usual, the bookings are made using AYY’s own booking system TILA. TILA can be found at https://tila.ayy.fi/, and users can log on with the Aalto University IT user details.

You can make advance bookings for the period of Mon 12 Aug 2019–Sun 5 Jan 2020.

The schedule for facility reservations in the system is as follows:

-Special status associations
The reservation period begins at 12 noon on Mon 6 May 2019 and ends at 12 noon on Tue 14 May.
Booking session 1: Tue 14 May from 4.30 pm onwards in hall R001/M232 M1 of the Undergraduate Centre (Otakaari 1).

-Other associations in the 1st list
The reservation period begins at 12 noon on Wed 15 May 2019 and ends at 12 noon on Tue 21 May.
Booking session 2: Tue 21 May from 4.30 pm onwards in hall R001/M232 M1 of the Undergraduate Centre (Otakaari 1).

Important notice! The following change has been made to the previous advance booking round: bookings for three hobby facilities (multi-facility hall, Tatami hall, association room) are only made in the round beginning on 15 May, and associations need to come to the latter booking session on Tue 21 May to defend their bookings for these facilities. This applies to all associations! Hobby facilities can only be booked from Mon 15 May onwards. The reason for the change is to guarantee all associations more equal opportunities to book these highly-sought-after free facilities.

Find the more detailed booking instructions here: https://ayy.fi/en/blog/2019/05/06/advance-booking-of-ayys-facilities-rented-on-a-one-time-basis-started-on-6th-may/.

 

2. FYI – biggest AYY events in autumn 2019
The volunteers and employees of Aalto University Student Union organise various big events aimed at all Aalto people, some of whose dates have been listed below. These are for your information and to support the planning of other events, especially if you want to be aware of these when making future facility bookings. Welcome along!

3 Sept: Aalto Party
21 Sept: Otaniemi Night of Arts
30 Sept: Lakinlaskijaiset
31 Oct: Aalto Talent Expo

3. Come celebrate the 67-year history of our Teekkari Village on Flower Day, 13 May!
AYY’s Campus Section warmly welcomes everyone to celebrate the traditional festivities of Flower Day (Flooran Päivä), coinciding with the 67th birthday of the Teekkari Village, on Monday 13 May.

Once again, the event takes place in the heart of the Teekkari Village, Servin Mökki, where you can enjoy tasty snacks and spring-themed activities from 4 pm onwards. As per tradition, the highlight of the evening is the festive handing-over ceremony of the Flower Day message. Flower Day is also a part of AYY’s 9th Annual Ball Week.

So, come over to enjoy the springlike festive atmosphere and invite your friends to come along too! More information on Flower Day can be found behind the attached link: https://www.facebook.com/events/2263069650443938/.

 

4. Overalls and student clothing for the Sillis Brunch of AYY’s Annual Ball
The Annual Ball Committee is looking for student overalls and coats of student associations and guilds for the Sillis Brunch of AYY’s Annual Ball. This is an excellent opportunity to get rid of some of your organisation’s spare overalls and coats, as well as to make your organisation’s clothing highly visible at the collective party of the entire AYY!

If your association has spare, unused overalls or coats from past years that you could donate to the Sillis Brunch, get in touch with the Annual Ball Committee either by email at [email protected] or on Telegram @lohenscowl.

 

5. Get your association into shape for the summer with these tips!
With summer approaching, the operations of many organisations start to slow down for summer hibernation. This makes now a good time to get your organisation’s matters into shape for the summer and to make sure that the things left unorganised from the spring will not be casting a shadow over the summer holidays.

Please make sure that your association’s finances are in order for the spring. This means at least that all of the spring’s transactions, expense claims and receipts are up to date. You can find help on matters related to financial management and accounting in the Association Guide: https://yhdistysopas.ayy.fi/financial-management-and-accounting/?lang=en/. While you are at it, complete anything left hanging, such as sending messages and gathering the required signatures. If you need advice, jarjestoasiat(a)ayy.fi will answer your questions. Once all spring tasks have been finalised, it is easier to get ready for the autumn and nice to get back to your new tasks in the autumn!

Also, it is a good idea to take at least a bit of a break from organisation chores in the summer, so that your enthusiasm will carry you through the autumn as well. See you at Aalto Party on 3 Sept at the latest!

 

6. Submit your event for the calendar for the academic year 2019–2020
Associations and operators within AYY have the opportunity to submit their important dates for the Design Calendar produced collectively by AYY and TOKYO. Events can be added to the table linked below until Sunday 26 May 2019. Add your events under the correct month in chronological order.

Write the text you want in the calendar in the column “Event name/Text.” Kindly note that there is room for a maximum of 25 characters, including spaces, on one line. When writing, think about how many lines of your own calendar you want to be “wasted.” The calendar will be trilingual, so take this into account too when planning your text.

The table can be edited until the given deadline of 26 May 2019, and you can make changes to your events until then. Take care when filling in the columns, and double-check that the information is accurate. Also remember to include the information on who is organising the event.

The table can be found at http://bit.ly/ayycalendar2019.

Questions and comments can be sent to AYY’s Communications Specialist Henna Palonen ([email protected] or 050 5209440).

 

7. Take over AYY’s Instagram Story for a day
Do you want to talk about your operations, showcase your association or maybe show how an event is organised your way? Your association has the opportunity to tell AYY’s 2300 Instagram followers what it is that you do and how you do it. Via the Stories, the followers get to see what a versatile and multifaceted organisation field AYY has, and your association will reach new people at the same time.

Are you interested in taking over AYY’s Instagram Story? Send a note to AYY’s Communications Specialist Henna Palonen (henna.palonen(a)ayy.fi) and agree on your day. During the summer, there are especially many opportunities to take over the Story and to advertise your operations to new students as well!

 

8. Follow AYY on social media

9. Supervisors for entrance examinations
We are recruiting student supervisors for the entrance examinations taking place on 20 May–6 Jun 2019 and for assisting tasks on 7–10 Jun 2019. We organise training sessions for the supervisors, and top priority will be given to students who take part in the training sessions.
