Committees

Aava

Aava, Aalto University Student Union’s Community section, creates and fosters Aalto culture. Aava’s goal is to bring all Aalto students together and provide possibilities to do things together. Aava offers great experiences to all Aalto members, regardless of their field.

Aava develops the Aalto community by creating and implementing a variety of events, ranging from volleyball tournaments to zombie larp events and from huge parties to laid-back movie marathons. Each Aava member has their own area of responsibility. In addition, the section actively carries out common projects and forms a close-knit group. In Aava, ideas are made into reality and there is no lack of action!

The Anniversary Committee, Sports Committee, Humans vs. Zombies Committee, Aalto Afterparty Committee and sports tutors operate under Aava.

Aava listens and is active, so if you have any suggestions or would like to know about Aava member’s area of responsiblity, please do not hesitate to contact us!

The whole committee can be easily contacted by email [email protected]
