Pentikäinen is from Tampere and now studies at Aalto University School of Business. This year, he has been responsible for social policy, municipal advocacy and sports in the Student Union Board.

”I want to lead a courageous, professional and equal federation of all higher education students. Next year, the federation’s strategy will be updated, the Finnish Students on the Move action programme will be extended to higher education institutions and groundwork for municipal elections will be done. These are great opportunities to improve students’ well-being,” Pentikäinen comments enthusiastically.

“Antti is AYY’s first candidate to run for the President of the Finnish Student Sports Federation. The best thing about him is his enthusiasm to learn new things and his desire to help others. I am sure that cooperation skills and analytical thinking are needed at Lapinrinne,” says AYY’s Executive Director Elina Nieminen.

OLL will elect its President for the year of 2020 at its general assembly in Jyväskylä on 20-21 Nov 2019. OLL is an advocacy and service organisation that represents all Finnish higher education students in both national and international fields. The primary goal of OLL is to ensure that students engage in sufficient physical exercise in order to secure a healthy lifestyle and see to it that students are offered an adequate level of high-quality sports services.

Government cuts put a stop to the construction of student housing

We are shocked by the recent cuts of the Finnish Government which put student housing and its construction at stake. In its session on spending limits, the Government made significant cuts to the special group investment grants for student housing construction, which makes the commencement of already planned housing projects in the capital region uncertain and complicates the housing situation for students as well as the housing activities of the Aalto University Student Union (AYY).
