Suomi manittu! Torilla tavataan! is the phrase that signifies how important for Finns is to be able to express themselves and be recognised. Get ready to show the most of your inner Finn: Finnish flags, sauna hats, Karhu pants, hip bags and everything in between are appreciated ;)

This sitsit is organised in cooperation of LES guilds (KRK, Sätky, Pelletti, Armatuuri) and ESN Lappeenranta primarily for LES bachelor's and master's freshmen. The sitsit will be conducted in English with a few traditional Finnish songs.

WHAT IS A SITSIT?

Sitsit (sitz, sittning, sitsfest) is a traditional academic table party originating in the Nordic countries. During a sitsit people eat, hold speeches and sing drinking songs. The party is hosted by toastmasters whose word is the rule of law. They decide the rhythm of the event, such as timing of breaks and dining. If you don’t follow the rules, you will get a punishment.

Sitsit is a unique tradition that you cannot miss during your stay in Lappeenranta. Experiencing Finnish student culture, singing and drinking with your new friends is what makes the party so fun!
