The name change

We are happy to announce that Erasmus Student Network Lappeenranta ry will be renamed with the 31.03.2024 decision of the board meeting.

The new name is Lappeenrannan paras kilta ry. The branding “ESN Lappeenranta” will remain, as we are too lazy to change the graphic design during our Finnish Longest Wappu.

Stay tuned.

UPD: Check the date of that post. Thank you! Everyone who was overreacting, you are welcome!

Wappu 2024 scheldule

Wappu’s schedule is here! Feel free to go through the long list of events and see which ones you’ll like. Remember that opening and closing is pretty important.

Also, ESN Lappeenranta events during this year’s Wappu are Välikuolemasaunis which roughly means “halfway through and feeling like death saunis”, so halfway through Wappu on the 16.4 when you’re burnt out from all the events we’re having a chill sauna and cooking some food at the ESN sauna.

Also on the 27.4, we’re having a Skinnarila Cookout, in which Art is cooking some nice meats and veggies near LAB for everyone to enjoy before Finnhits later that day.

So yeah, come check out the events and if you get the Wappu pass card you can get a stamp from each event and get a special patch at the end 😎

Jäärieha

We represented ESN Lappeenranta at the Lappeenranta City family event, where we engaged with locals, played Nokia phone throwing, and distributed free coffee and candies while promoting our guild.

That was an excellent opportunity to inform the citizens of our city about our global impact and the significance of the region’s internationalization. People were naturally delighted to spend time with us.
