Celebrating the National University’s 101 and UT Student Union’s 100 anniversary


The Book

Starting with November 30, we are all invited to take part in the celebrations of the 101 anniversary of the National University and the 100 anniversary of the Student Union of the University of Tartu.

On November 30, both the student body and the authors will present the history book “100 years of student representation at the University of Tartu”, put together as a gift for the 100 anniversary of UTSU, in the big hall of the University of Tartu Library. The hall can accommodate up to 200 guests, so it is possible to take part in the presentation both on site and via UTTV.

This event will also give us the opportunity to see and hear about the making of the new design for the university’s ring and pins. Lots to see, do not miss out!
