It's time to AATU again! The traditional Akateeminen Aurajokilaivuritutkinto (AATU) gathers students from all over Finland to explore the riverboats of the Aura River and the city of Turku in May. The springtime “riverboat” crawl culminates in an afterparty at Apollo nightclub in Turku. This year, AYY's Community Section Aava and KY's Cultural Subcommittee KUJ will transport all Aalto students to and from Turku.

Buses depart from MMK (Metallimiehenkuja 6) on Thursday, May 11th at 11:00 am and return from Turku bus station on Friday 12th at 2:30 am. The ticket price is 40 euros, which includes transportation to Turku, a pub crawl ticket, a ticket to the after-party, a coat check fee at the afterparty, and transportation back to Helsinki or Espoo.

The eventful day begins with a pre-party at MMK, where participants can arrive from 10 am onwards. Pub crawl tickets and overall patches will also be distributed at the pre-party, so arriving early is advisable. The afterparty will take place at Apollo, and the main artist of the night will be announced later. Both return buses will stop at Kiasma before heading back to Otaniemi.

The sale of tickets begins on Tuesday, April 11th, at 14:00 pm on Kide.app (the Kide link will be announced on the event's discussion page). Tickets are limited, so it's best to be quick!

Come and enjoy the springtime in Turku, and bring your friends along too!
