Greetings from Riversmouth!
As with other NESU-cities, COVID also affected our events of the early year. NESU-Optimi’s 10th anniversary sits party had to be rescheduled, but fortunately some of the restrictions were lifted around mid-February. We were then able to organize said sits party in late February. The birthday celebration was held in two parts. This week we got to organize our second sits party of the year, to celebrate the 20-year-old Optimi. We had a record number of visitors from other cities, YAY!
To raise the team spirit of NESU-Optimi, we organized a now-traditional kämppäapprot tour. Besides sits parties, we have also attended other student trips, went skiing in Koli and took part in a Kuopio overalls party (haalaribileet). The board members have also been busy visiting sits parties in other NESU-cities such as Lappeenranta and Mikkeli. Although many of us have been ill this spring, our NESU-spirit remains high.
See you in Joensuu and other NESU-cities!
