First of all congratulations! It is going to be an awesome year full of wonderful experiences!
It is really cool that you have found your way here to the board of Oulu's student teachers OLO's website! Olo together with your tutors want to help you in starting your studies so that you can have a successful and awesome first year!
We have collected a little information package for you, because we as well have been freshmen once and know that at the start things can get a little confusing! On our website you can also find information about what does OLO ry do, so it could be also good to check it out!
Every group has their board tutors in addition to regular tutors, who can tell your group more about OLO and gladly answer any questions about OLO and other stuff regarding studying.
