Open Positions of Trust


The opening event of the academic year Vulcanalia is cancelled due to the corona virus situation
The University of Oulu’s opening event of the academic year Vulcanalia is cancelled this year due to the corona virus situation. The event was supposed to take place the 9th of September 2020. The Vulcanalia day consists of two parts: Vulcanalia Student Fair and Vulcanalia Festival. Neither of these events will be organized this year. The Executive Board of the Student Union of the University of Oulu has done a difficult decision in it’s meeting on 25th of June 2020. Cancelling the event feels like the only responsible option in the present situation.
