The sports section Aalto-Liike connects Aalto University students through sports and wholesome fun. As a member of Aalto-Liike, you can implement entirely new, exciting and even crazy ideas! Definitely the best aspect of these activities is the freedom that AYY offers and its support to carry out great event concepts. Which ideas do you have for the next year?
Aalto-Liike meets about once a week during the lecture periods. Being a member of the section takes about five hours of your time per week, the emphasis is before events.
- Participating in sports advocacy and cooperation with Unisport
- Having fun!
- Organising AYY’s major and small sports events
- Brainstorming event concepts
In 2012, Aalto-Liike organised the following events:
- Academic Quarter (race)
- Battle for the mastery of Otaniemi
- Shrovetide celebrations
…and was involved in organising these:
- SELL Games
- Aalto Party
- Welcome event of international students
- Wellness weeks
The year 2013 will include at least the organising of Academic Quarter and Shrovetide celebrations, as well as plenty of smaller and larger interesting activities.

Corporate relations officer
In charge of the business cooperation of Aalto-Liike. Serves as a link to the corporate relations sector. Coordinates sponsorship acquisition for events.
Chair of the sports and wellness committee (LiHytmk)
The sports and wellness committee gathers the special status association members in charge of sports affairs to one committee. The purpose of the committee is to organise sports and wellness events on a smaller scale and together with Aalto-Liike organise larger events for all Aalto students. The committee organises the wellness weeks in the spring and autumn.
The committee also works as the communications channel for guilds and facilitates the cooperation between Unisport, AYY and guilds. The most important task, however, is to introduce persons in charge of sports affairs to one another – this may inspire people to spontaneously organise events together, between the guilds. The committee meets as necessary, more frequently when events are organised.
