Teekkarikaste

Teekkarikaste

On 1st of May, the Fuksi (engineering freshmen students) that were more active in the universitary life are awarded with the Teekkarikaste ritual, in which they are dipped in the cold (really cold) water inside a basket, becoming Teekkaris (official engineering students, no longer freshmen). It was such a honour to be one of them :)

    @ihave2pillows yes there is. in fact, in this same album you can find pictures taken from inside the baskets... (while jumping, so no that good ones). but you can be dipped once in your life so... i had to immortalize the moment!
