4 Section of the Month: ESN Åbo Akademi
ESN Åbo Akademi, founded already in 1994, is one of the three ESN sections located in Turku. We’re a relatively small group and university, only taking on 200-300 exchange students per year, but we organize a lot of joint activities and parties with the other sections in Turku. Aside from participating in the trips to Lapland and Russia, the Pirates of the Baltic Trips and other programs in cooperation with other ESN sections, we have our own social gatherings, like our movie evenings, where we introduce our foreign student to the Nordic movie-scene. Our next event will be a joint ESN event in Turku, the Farewell Party, which will also be a Responsible party.
This year we also had the pleasure of introducing our new mascot and updating our logos. Aura, our beautiful Finnish swan, has been enjoying her new role so far, and is looking forward to attending events within Turku and Finland, maybe even going abroad, if she gets the chance? Aura is an active user of social media, so you can find her and our section on Facebook, Instagram (@ESNTurkuAbo) and our own webpage; esnabo.org. Since we’re heading for a new year with a new board, the old board would like to thank everyone within the ESN family for an awesome year, and we’re looking forward to working with you in the future.
