The legendary, magnificent, unforgettable WAPPU is on its way again. As all the final course exams will be left behind us within two weeks and the summer is already right behind the corner, we say it's time to party NOW!
The traditional theme week is organized for the 33rd time in 2014 with the highly topical but underrated theme Embodiment. The Women Culture Days approach the topic from the perspective of bodily variations and self-determination. Who does your body belong to; what’s the right kind of body; what kind of things is it OK for your body to do? We attempt to answer these questions by examining work life practices, media imageries, legislation and much more. Despite the heavy subject matter, we will find alternative ways of being and regaining the control over our bodies.
The Women Culture Days programme includes both Finnish and English language content, such as various expert lectures, film screenings and festivities. The event is a celebration of the variety of bodies, genders and sexualities, climaxing with the traditional evening soiree in Klubi, featuring queer burlesque and live music.
We welcome persons of all genders, whether students or not, to enjoy our programme!

Tamy's Environmental Days 19-21 Nov: Let's stop the climate change!
How can we slow down the climate change and who should take responsibility? Tamy's Environmental Days want to prompt discussion about climate change from different viewpoints and seek answers to the biggest environmental problem of our time. The topic is discussed in lectures, workshops, panel discussions, excursions and other forms of sharing information.
Tamy was born on 22 November 1925. The Student Union celebrates their anniversary every 5th year with anniversary celebrations and in between with annual birthday parties. The birthday celebration is a Thank You to the people who have been actively involved in Tamy's operation during the year, such as student representatives and associations, and a reason to bring all students together to party. Tamy celebrates their birthday annually since 2011. The next anniversary celebration will be held in 2015.
In 2013 the Student Union of the University of Tampere celebrates their 88th birthday!
Tamy wishes to thank everyone involved for making the year 2013 a great one! You are invited to celebrate Tamy's 88th birthday on Friday 22 November in Restaurant Bricks (Hämeenkatu 18) from 9 p.m. onwards!
