Anglica ry

Since 1958.

General Information

Anglica was founded in 1958 to be the student organisation for English students at the University of Turku. We are the second oldest student organisation at the University. Currently we have around 400 members, and we are the largest student organisation among the humanists of Turku.

While our weekly events and parties are the more visible side of Anglica, our most important task is to take care of the interests of our members studywise. Anglica has a representative that frequents staff meets once a month, where s/he can keep the staff informed about the studentsí views about the studies. Anglica can tackle even hard subjects, while keeping your anonymity, so do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems regarding courses or teachers etc. We can also contact Humanitas or TYY for you, or have any of your questions or comments forwarded to the person in question.

For years, Anglica has annually donated to a charity of the board's choosing. We also arrange regular blood donating days with the Finnish Red Cross and encourage our members to donate blood. Anglica supported the Tahdon 2013 campaign for equal marriage law in Finland and we have also attended Pride parades annually.

Anglica has several clubs where our members can carry out their interests and find people with similar interests. The activity of the clubs depends on the members entirely, so if you are interested in any of these clubs, or would perhaps like to create a new one, join the clubs' Facebook groups or/and contact the board.

ASKI Club (Anglica's Ski Club) offers its members organized ski trips - abroad and in Finland - and organizes fun wintery-themed events such as winter olympics and other (even multi-disciplinary!) get-togethers. For more information check out ASKI's Instagram @aski_club.

Anglica Music Club (AMC) is a brand new hobby club inside Anglica. We organize and offer all things music such as open band practises, jam sessions, listening parties, karaoke nights and much more! For more information and to sign-up check out AMC's Instagram @anglicamusicclub.
