Market Day - meet the student organisations of ITU
Student Council is hosting an event together with the student organisations of ITU - we call it Market Day.

It is an opportunity for you to learn more about the student organisations at ITU and perhaps even be inspired to join one!

Joining an organisation is an awesome way to make new friends at the university and it is also a great way to get involved in making ITU an even better place for socialising and learning. Plus, it is also a chance to broaden your horizons and discover something new. 

There is no way you will miss this event, because it takes place in Atrium today between 11:00-14:00.

We really hope you can make it and we look forward to seeing you there!
