METKA’s Freshers Party – Spring 2020


METKAn kevään fuksiaiset 2020

METKA’s Spring Freshers Party 6.2.2020 will take you on a trip around the globe!

Freshers Party is a celebration for new students at a park, where they attend checkpoints with their teams in Kaivopuisto and areas nearby. The park will be full of students from different fields of study, so Freshers Party is also a great opportunity to get to know other freshers and exchange students from Metropolia!

Besides the checkpoint race, the point is to get to know your own team, have fun and dress up in a costume! This year’s theme is TRIP AROUND THE GLOBE and the best-dressed team will be rewarded at the after party. To take part in the costume competition, post a picture of your team on a public Instagram account with a capture: [name of the team] #metkanfuksiaisetK20.

The fun does not end there because we have an after party in Helsinki city center, Apollo Live Club. The party will have a glamorous artist, that will be revealed soon. The team with the best spirit will be rewarded at the afterparty.

The schedule of the evening:
4 pm checkpoint race starts (you can start the race later on too, latest by 6 pm)
7 pm final checkpoint opens
8.30 pm the checkpoints close
9 pm the final checkpoints closes and after party starts


9€ / METKA member, 18€ / non-member.
The price includes the checkpoint race, the after party and an overall badge.
