Who can join Karavaani?

Karavaani ry is one of the biggest student organizations in the faculty of Arts. Anyone can join Karavaani, whether they just want to drink coffee with us or participate to our activities. Many of our members study in culture or language related programs, but it doesn’t really matter what you study. You can be an international student staying in Finland for many years or an exchange student visiting for a month – all of you can join without restrictions as long as you are a student in Helsinki University.

What do we offer?

We have all kinds of events, all sorts of parties and get-togethers, but we also arrange some excursions. If you’re looking for people to practice your Finnish with, we can definitely do that too. Karavaani also offers help when its needed. If you get bullied, have an issue with a teacher or simply don’t know where your lecture is, we can help you sort things out.
