In English

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

Retikka organizes events, such as International cooking evenings, which are great opportunities to meet local nutrition students and to learn more about Finnish food culture. At the International cooking evenings Finnish and international students prepare traditional Finnish dishes together, get to know each other and learn about our culture while cooking and enjoying tasty food. These events are especially great for exchange students who want to get to know their fellow Finnish students.

Another great way to meet other nutrition students is to visit Retikka’s own “living room” in Canthia. You’re more than welcome to drop by if you’re in the mood for a chat, a cup of coffee or just a chill-out in a comfortable environment! The room is located on the first floor in the basement of Canthia. If you have trouble finding it, you can contact our international coordinator at all times!
