we already decided to replace digital Frank student card in 2019. We are almost
there, so new digital student card should be in use in no time! We just need to
figure out the last IT-issues with that and then we are good to go. This is
probably one of the biggest change this year, and it is visible especially for
everyone with a student card. And don’t worry – we will inform about the new digital
student card as soon as we know when it will be launched!
change especially for our office crew is that our office is moving to Kotkantie
campus in the end of April. In many ways, it will make our everyday life much
more easier for us, since for example many of the working groups that we are
attending have their meetings in Kotkantie campus. It is also nice to be closer
to the students, and we are sure that it will bring us something new. Despite
the move, it’s important to remember that there is life outside of Kotkantie
campus too: Oamk has students also in Kontinkangas and Teuvo Pakkalan katu
campus, and we must not forget Oulainen campus.
students and staff from Kotkantie and Teuvo Pakkalan katu campuses are moving
to Linnanmaa campus in the autumn of 2020. Oamk and Oulu University have been
planning cooperations for the joint campus, and OSAKO has been an active part
of the planning process too: we want to make sure that students are considered
as an important part in every decision. Cooperation between the universities
and joint campus will provide many possibilities. We are also trying to make
sure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
Linnanmaa means other things too than just cooperation between universities. We
don’t want our social and health care students to feel left out, but we are
lobbying also for their benefits. We want both Linnanmaa and Kontinkangas to be
good places for students to live and study.
advocacy work is in the core of everything we do, we haven’t forgotten about
our events! Our first event of the year, Winter Rumble is this weekend, and we
have begun to plan vappu parties and Preludi as well. We also made a deal with
SuperPark so that there would be more alcohol free events for every student.
First SuperPark event is in vappu week and another one next fall. We are
constantly looking for new partners so that we could develop our sporty and
alcohol free events even more.
we wish for your feedback even in the smallest of issues, both via e-mail and
anonymously in our feedback section in the website. We are doing everything for
our student members – it’s easier to make an impact on your behalf if we know
what your concerns and wishes are.
great spring everybody!
