Deutscher Abend

Students of Karelia University of Applied Sciences studying German, German and Austrian students and pretty much anyone interested in German language and culture were welcome to the German evening arranged by Tourism and Hospitality students Eleonora Oksman, Roosa Savinainen, Juuso Oikari and Eetu Hirvonen.

Juuso, Eetu, Eleonora and Roosa, the event organizers who put much love in this successful evening.

The event started with German language teacher Kaija Sankila, POKA (Student Union of Karelia University of Applied Sciences) coordinator Mervi Hinkkanen and the organizers of the event welcoming their guests. After the welcoming, it was natural to hear the national anthem of Germany to open officially the event. Kaija Sankila proceeded with showing us an interesting video about Oktobersfest and us participating in a fun quiz about it.

One of the guests in that evening was the representative of Finnish-German society. He informed us about the actions of the society and gave an exceptional presentation on the German cuisine. The German and Austrian students of Karelia UAS introduced also themselves and gave us information about themselves and their places of origin. They organized for us an amusing quiz about Germany, through which we gained some more knowledge about this country and its people.

From such an event German food could not be missing. Under the guidance of tourism teacher Tuula Ikonen, students prepared delicious German food for the guests to enjoy. Among other things, different sausages, potato salad, onion pie, authentic German pretzel and beer were offered to the guests in a lovely, warm atmosphere in the restaurant of Wärtsilä Campus. The decoration of the space did not go unnoticed as well· German flags and posters were evident everywhere. The attention and effort organizers put on this event could also be seen from smaller details such as the Germany related napkins etc.

German Food in all its glory. Lecker!

The event ended with a lottery. Beautiful gifts such as German beer and Karelia products were given to the winners. I myself left with a collection of Goethe pins with words and phrases in German. Overall, the event was outstanding and I believe the guests enjoyed it with all their senses. The smell and flavor of the food was definitely was zum Genießen. The German music playing in the background was splendid and the room was marvelously adorned. Most importantly we learned more about Germany and its culture and everyone practiced their language skills whether it was German, English or Finnish. I would absolutely describe this event as a success and I’m looking forward to attending the next one.

Introduction to Russian Cuisine

Second year Tourism and Hospitality students had an original Russian dinner with Russian students in Karelia University of Applied Sciences. Under the guidance of Russian language teacher Riitta Hyttinen, tourism teacher Tuula Ikonen and Russian students Aleksandra, Sofya and Vita we prepared a lovely dinner for ourselves to enjoy.

The menu consisted of the following delicious dishes: salad Olivje, vitamin salad, sauerkraut salad, herring salad, borscht soup, Russian pies, блины (Russian pancakes or crepes), Russian beverages and delicacies. The actual cooking procedure, the smell and flavor of the food were all amazing! Except for cooking, we tried to interact and communicate a little bit in Russian and practice our language skills. The decoration was also beautiful and the atmosphere warm and friendly.

Preparing these tasty creations under the guidance of the Russian experts was a wonderful experience. We got something more than a glimpse in the Russian food culture and we certainly hope to learn more about it. Working with the international students was interesting and fun as always. We are looking forward to spending more time with them/you!

You, Me, East

Karelian promotiimi – muutamalla tekniikan opiskelijalla ja henkilökunnan messukonkarilla vahvistettuna – pakkasi laukkunsa ja hyppäsi junaan Joensuusta kohti Helsinkiä. Päämääränä Studia –messut: Suomen suurin opiskelu- ja uratapahtuma Helsingissä. Kävijöitä tänä vuonna muuten huimat 13 500!

Perille saavuttuamme saimme yhteisen briiffin Savonia-ammattikorkeakoulun ja Itä-Suomen Yliopiston porukan kanssa, joiden kanssa teemme tänäkin vuonna yhteistyötä Studia -messuilla.

Pääsimme jo kurkistelemaan vielä hieman keskeneräistä messuosastoamme.

Seuraavana aamuna lähdimme jo hyvissä ajoin kohti Messukeskusta.

Yhdeksältä ovet avautuivat yleisölle, ja pian osastollamme vallitsi jo kuhina kiinnostuneista messuvieraista. Jaoimme omia kokemuksiamme opiskelusta, esittelimme opintotarjontaamme, tsemppasimme kirjoituksiin ja opintoihin, pääsimme vastailemaan kiperiin kysymyksiin ja kehuimme kilpaa itäisen Suomen mahtavia opiskelupuitteita. Sitähän ne ovat, vai mitä?!

Näitä lähti kävijöille matkamuistoksi: mikropoppareita!

Yhteistyömme Savonian ja Itä-Suomen Yliopiston porukan kanssa toimi hienosti, ja lähes kaikille kävijöille oli tarjolla jokin heitä kiinnostava opiskeluvaihtoehto, tai monesti useampikin!

 Illalla olimme tosi puhki (ainakin allekirjoittanut), ja hyödynsimme illan omien mieltymysten mukaisesti kukin tavallaan: jääkiekko-ottelusta taidenäyttelyyn.

Unta ei tarvinnut saunan jälkeen odotella.

Toinen messupäivä kului samalla kaavalla: tapasimme innostuneita lukion ja toisen asteen opiskelijoita, saimme aikaan mielenkiintoisia keskusteluja ja pääsimme myös nauttimaan energisestä messutunnelmasta.

Onnistunut reissu saatiin päätökseen ja hyppäsimme Joensuun junaan. Junamatkalla kävimme messujen kohokohdat läpi ja nautimme kuumat glögit. Perillä odotti kaunis, talvinen Joensuu – se ihana opiskelukaupunkimme!

Kiitos Studia -messut 2016, Savonia-ammattikorkeakoulu ja Itä-Suomen Yliopisto ja erityiskiitos messukävijöille! Toivottavasti tapaamme syksyllä opiskelutovereina!

Terkuin promotiimin Elina
