1st of May is a cold ride!

Come and see the popular Vappu-event Forstikaste, the baptism of new Forest Sciences students!

Every year near 1st of May the newest students of UEF Forest Sciences gather together to take a nice little swim by swiftly falling off of a log into the Pielisjoki river.

Bonus fun, if the river is still slightly frozen.
