Get Together Day

The Get Together Day is an event organized for all exchange students at SAMK. It’s a day filled with fun and new experiences.

When coming to Finland, there are a number of things they want to do and this day is a great opportunity for them to dive into the Finnish culture!

In the morning, the students are given a presentation on Finland, on a possible culture shock and how to deal with this new environment. Later on in the afternoon, a few typical activities are organised depending on the season.

During the day, the students can enjoy Finnish food-tasting, typical Finnish games and outdoor activities like swimming in the lake, sledging, cross-country skiing, grilling sausages, etc.

Christmas Dinner

The Christmas dinner is an event organized for exchange students in order to end the semester in the most Finnish and festive way.

They are served typical Finnish Christmas food and the tutors organise some games and activities during the night. Indeed, they sing, play music and obviously, Santa pays everyone a visit.
