There is probably only one thing which splits the TTVO students into two camps: THE HAALARI. The haalari is for the most people the Finnish party-uniform which animates the students to get drunk. For some students this might be right but the haalari has also another important functionality: common identity.
The TTVO was the only campus in the history of TAMK which had no overalls at all – UNTIL NOW! After a few years of forlorn trying we finally organized to get our very own boiler suits. It was a quite long and rough way but it was worth it!
Herewith I would like to thank all the super amazing sponsors who made our haalarit possible: Demola, Connecting Talents, Game House, TAMKO, Valokuvaamo KLIK, A-Print, Ravintola Artturi, Juvenes and Joel Forsman Photography as well as Vilho from haalarikauppa.fi and Silkkipaino Tam-Folio . KIITOS!
A special thank you goes to Markku and Noora who spent hours with organizing and calling as well as Tarina and Joel.
