Retikka Association is an organization of students of clinical nutrition at the University of Eastern Finland. Since 1984, Retikka has united the students of nutrition at the University of Eastern Finland, cared for the rights and well-being of its members, and improved the student’s contacts with working life.

Retikka organizes events, such as Rousette skating and International cooking evenings, which are great opportunities to get to know Finnish students and culture. In Rousette skating, the tasks will be performed in pairs and you can join even without skates! In International cooking evening, Finnish and exchange students will prepare traditional Finnish dishes and that’s a good opportunity to learn about Finnish food culture by cooking and enjoying tasty food. These events are great for exchange students, who want to get to know Finnish students. In addition, Retikka has a room in Canthia, which is an excellent place to meet other nutrition students in comfortable environment.
