Freshman Points


The purpose of freshman points is to introduce freshmen to teekkari culture, the association’s and the student association’s operations and other students beyond the limits of guilds.

For freshman points, every freshman is given their own freshman point card. You can collect freshman points by participating in the Association of Process Engineering Students’, AYY’s or it’s sub-association’s activities – either by helping organize events or just by being there! In principle, you get to choose how you collect your points, but some freshman points are compulsory for all freshmen, for example, a visit to the Polytechnician Museum. It’s generally advisable to start collecting the points in the Autumn, as if you lack the points on the eve of the possible Wappu, you will also lack the Teekkari cap on your head on the Wappu day. No need to fear though: as when you eagerly join in on the activities, your point card will fill up faster than you realize! The goal is not to overbear anyone but to provide fun moments in good company. The points in your point card will be given by freshman captains and other members of the board of the Association during the year. As the Christmas closes in, we will collect the cards for inspection so we can tell, how many points are still missing. During the possible Wappu we will hand out accessibility passes and the most active of the freshmen will be honoured.

The freshman point cards will be handed to the freshmen during the first day of the orientation week. If you didn’t get your own pass or if you’ve lost yours, or if it looks like you won’t be able to complete some compulsory points, please do contact your freshman captains. We will make the necessary arrangements to help you. Don’t throw in the towel during the year – acquiring your Teekkari cap from the secretary’s office on Mother’s Day isn’t that memorable of an experience. Below are some freshman points and the related events, you can get more information from your freshman captains.

Besides the 7 compulsory points, you must also complete at least 30 other freshman points in order to earn your Teekkari cap. One event can yield 1-3 points depending on the event, so freshman points come by fairly easily. If you are seeking prestige and glory, it is also possible to go for the title of Freshman Doctorate, which requires 60 points on top of the compulsory points. 75 points on the other hand grants you the Honorary Degree. Rumour has it, that freshmen who have completed 95 freshman points alongside the compulsory ones will be honoured as Super Freshmen. An achievement this great will also lend you great honour, as only a handful of our freshmen have ever achieved the title of Super Freshman.
