Class trip to Vierumäki

On the 20th of November some of us Sport and Exercise Psychology students attended a Sport Psychology -seminar in Vierumäki. The seminar was organized by the Finnish Sport Psychology Association (SUPY – Suomen urheilupsykologinen yhdistys). Unfortunately for the English speaking half of our class, only 1 out of 4 presentations was in English, so only…

Forgotten blog post and some ham.

For the obvious reason that I forgot to post my blog writing before the deadline almost two weeks ago, there will be two posts during this week. I could blame it on the busy schedule, which was described in the aforementioned writing, but I will put it on my ability to use calendar. Or in…

Busy Weeks ahead!

One year of being full-time dad in America and enjoying nice weather has changed to being student-employee-dad in Finland and in not so nice weather. With all these new things in my life I´ve been glad that we haven´t had lots of contact-lessons from the beginning of semester.  But now it´s going to chance! Next…

Oho, Sport Psychology?! Noniin!

“Hey, was it Sport Management program?” was my first question when we had our first meeting for 10 credits Sport Psychology course! And since then I was only studying psychology… But it’s fine! Cause I have expanded my knowledge in that field significantly! I feel it was a really great choice to apply to this…

New beginnings

Little over a month ago we started our studies at Jyväskylä. Everything has been interesting so far and I feel good about the future. The group and staff are nice and the atmosphere is relaxed. For me the greatest change has been in the scheduling of studies. For the past years I have been able…

It feels like home already

So far so good! It’s been about a month of studying and living in Jyväskylä now, and life is becoming more settled. There seems to be a good atmosphere within our class, we all come along well despite our different backgrounds. Thanks to those differences and all the experiences each of us has had, the…

Jyväskylä? There is nothing to do there!

I am not gonna hide that these where originally my thoughts also. But thoughts from actual experiences tend to be quite different and that was for once more the case. Firstly i got into the orientation week getting general information about the campus and also the city. At that point i heard that Jyväskylä was…

Let the Year of Studying Commence!

Hi everyone! My name is Rosa-Maria and I’m one of the newbies in SportPro programme. I’d like just start this blog post by announcing that I have never wrote a blog post and this feels very very strange! So yeah, let me get in to it. I’m here to tell you guys whoever is reading…

From no studies to full studies

A lot has happened since I moved to Jyväskylä two weeks ago. It has been an emotional rollercoaster with new environment, new studymates and everything else. I have been living alone in Helsinki for the past six years and now living with roommates in Jyväskylä and also my last studies ended six years ago so everything feels new…

Start of a new chapter in Jyväskylä

As a student going to a new city you don’t really know what to expect, you see pictures on the internet of the nature and you hear how good the Universities in Finland are from people in your home country….. but then you actually start to live there. The first thing I noticed in Jyväskylä…

Summer School is about to start – But where is the summer?

The regular semester is coming to an end. We are done with the compulsory courses, the last deadlines are approaching, and the last exams are ahead. Some of us are done with the spring semester already, about to start their summer jobs, go home, push the thesis, or enjoy the summer (if it ever gets…
