KUJ (more formally Kulttuurijaosto) is the Cultural Subcommittee of KY. For decades, KUJ has ensured that the students of KY get their fair share of parties and events – and will continue to do so for many years to come. The most visible events of KUJ include parties like Sillis, Club Lagoon (largest student club party in Helsinki), KY’s official entrance exam party and many more. In September KUJ will welcome you to the student community at Mursujaiset, a 24-hour ordeal for new students, for which you should already brace yourself. You can spot members of KUJ by the furry collars on their overalls.
KUJ forms a tight-knit community, and former members of the board are often active even years after their graduation. As a member of KUJ you become a part of something much larger than just student life – you’ll find yourself at the heart of student culture. The door is open once and only once, so mursu, choose wisely.
