Take the survey for associations about AYY’s spaces by the 30th of June to get your voice heard! Answers to the survey will be used in the planning of the Student Center and other AYY’s upcoming facilities.

Take the survey here: https://lomake.ayy.fi/fi/space-survey-for-associations/

A free use of an AYY rentable space (excluding Servin mökki and Rantasauna) will be raffled among associations that have taken the survey during June. The prize is valid until the end of the year 2018.

 

2. Apply for support for your Otaniemi Night of Arts sub-event through AYY by the end of June
The Otaniemi Night of Arts will be held for the first time on Saturday, the 6th of October. It is a cross-artistic, free campus festival, where all willing associations within AYY can take part in making the creative program. There are already more than a dozen operators involved!

The easiest way to get financial support for your event is by submitting your application by the 30th of June through the form found at www.otanieminightofarts.fi. There is no upper limit to the sum of the financial support, and applications are handled on a case-by-case basis. Now is the perfect time to make your wildest event ideas a reality! In addition to financial support, AYY provides event organizers with the use of its own facilities and those of the event’s partners, free of charge.

Your event can be pretty much anything, as long as it is related to art in some way: an exhibition, a live music night, a dance workshop or even poetry karaoke. Only imagination and the laws of physics are the limit!

5. Share your ideas on AYY’s advocacy policies
The Aalto University Student Union is updating its policy papers this year. At the same time, the current policy papers will be combined into a single document. In what societal questions should Aalto people be especially active in?

https://lomake.ayy.fi/vaikuttaminen/share-your-ideas-on-ayys-advocacy-policies/

The survey is open until July 31st. For more information, please contact AYY’s Advocacy and Communications Manager: heikki.isotalo (a) ayy.fi

 

6. AYY’s new logos now available
At the beginning of 2018, the Aalto University Student Union adopted a brand strategy for the first time. The idea of AYY as an enabler of the best student’s life in the world is at the core of this strategy.

With the brand work, AYY’s visual outlook and logos were renewed, and they are now available for associations at https://inside.ayy.fi/display/KUV/AYY+Logot. If your association’s materials contain AYY’s logo anywhere (on your website, in your magazine or in your freshman guide, for example), we ask you to update the logos to comply with the new look by the beginning of the next academic year. You can also find visual guidelines on the website linked above.

If you want to read more about AYY’s brand strategy, check out the article on pages 40-41 in the latest AINO magazine, where Noora Vänttinen, Chair of AYY’s Board, explains how the new brand was built and what were the thoughts behind the new logo: https://issuu.com/aino-lehti/docs/aino2_2018_issuu.

The plan is to create a building for all students on the Otaniemi campus, next to the metro station entrance and the Harald Herlin Learning Center.

A Student Center seminar was held in April 2018, , johon osallistui edustajia erityisasemayhdistysten puheenjohtajien neuvostosta, edustajistosta ja AYY:n jaostoista. The goal of the seminar was to brainstorm what kinds of facilities, functions and services the center could have.

The ideas gathered onto the opiskelijakeskus.fi website are results of the seminar. Anyone can browse the ideas, like them and add their own ideas. We will go through the most popular ideas on Friday, the 15th of June, with further planning in mind. So, visit the website and add your own top ideas. What would you want the Student center to have?

The Board members in charge of the Student Center are Emma Savela (real estate) and Noora Tanska (community). Both can be reached via their emails at firstname.surname (a) ayy.fi.

The operating grants for 2018 have been granted and the sums are available at http://ayy.fi/en/associations/services/operating-grants/operating-grants-2018/

Operating grants are paid when all the prerequisites have been fulfilled. The payment order regarding the grants has been sent to most associations this week. The payment will be visible on the account submitted to the TAHLO system by the end of June.

If an association has discrepancies or things missing from their profiles on the AYY website, they will be notified of this in early June. The profile must be completed before the grants are paid, according to the instructions submitted when the applications opened. Organizations that have been granted additional time for certain appendices will not be specifically reminded about submitting them. These organizations must submit the appendices in accordance with the instructions they have received when the additional time was granted in order to receive the grant.

Associations that have not yet filed an association notice for 2018 must do so between the 6th of June, 12:00 noon, and 20th of June, 12:00 noon, at https://tahlo.ayy.fi/.

In what societal questions should Aalto people be especially active in? How should AYY react to subsistence, equality and sustainable development?

By taking the survey, you can bring new issues and ideas to the policy paper preparation work: https://lomake.ayy.fi/vaikuttaminen/share-your-ideas-on-ayys-advocacy-policies/

The survey is open until July 31st. For more information, please contact AYY’s Advocacy and Communications Manager: heikki.isotalo (a) ayy.fi

Hello, active students!

Have you worked actively in the Aalto University Student Union (in a section, for example), in an association operating within AYY (as a board member or officer), or in the University as a student representative in administration in 2017? You can get study credits for it.

The course (3 credits) includes writing a reflection report regarding what you have learned in the task and participation in a peer learning seminar.

AYY has consistently emphasized the importance of organizational activity for the development of individual know-how, and that is why we are happy that the Aalto University has decided to award study credits for students’ work in associations. For more information, please contact AYY’s education policy expert, Minna Mäkitalo, who has contributed to the format of the course: minna.makitalo (a) ayy.fi.

The operating grants for 2018 have been granted and the sums are available at http://ayy.fi/en/associations/services/operating-grants/operating-grants-2018/

Operating grants are paid when all the prerequisites have been fulfilled. The payment order regarding the grants will be sent to most associations next week. The payment will be visible on the account submitted to the TAHLO system by the end of June.

If an association has discrepancies or things missing from their profiles on the AYY website, they will be notified in early June. The profile must be completed before the grants are paid, according to the instructions submitted when the applications opened. Organizations that have been granted additional time for certain appendices will not be specifically reminded about submitting them. These organizations must submit the appendices in accordance with the instructions they have received when the additional time was granted in order to receive the grant.

Associations that have not yet filed an association notice for 2018 must do so between the 6th of June, 12:00 noon, and 29th of June, 12:00 noon, at https://tahlo.ayy.fi/. It is no longer possible to apply for operating grants this year. If the association fails to fill an association notice in the allocated time for the second year in a row, the association can be removed from the Student Union’s list of associations.

3. Share your ideas on AYY’s advocacy policies

In what societal questions should Aalto people be especially active in? How should AYY react to subsistence, equality and sustainable development?

The Aalto University Student Union is updating its policy papers this year. At the same time, the current policy papers will be combined into a single document. The idea is to create a document that ensures that AYY’s advocacy work is transparent and in line with the members’ opinions.

By taking the survey, you can bring new issues and ideas to the policy paper preparation work: https://lomake.ayy.fi/vaikuttaminen/share-your-ideas-on-ayys-advocacy-policies/

The survey is open until July 31st.

The Otaniemi Night of Arts consists of several sub-events organized by students, and the application period for the sub-events is now open. Your event can be pretty much anything, as long as it is related to art in some way: an exhibition, a live music night, a dance workshop or even poetry karaoke. Only imagination and the laws of physics are the limit!

AYY provides the use of facilities for event organizers for free. You can also receive financial support for your event through AYY and the TTE Fund.
