    Let’s just state the obvious here. We Mikkeli people are all superhumans. You think I’m joking? Just think about it.

    We study hard and take education very seriously. We take part in various after school activities. We are members of various clubs and participate in the acti- vities they offer.

    Our priorities include exercise, eating clean and kee- ping up a healthy lifestyle. We help each other in every circumstance.

    We do party, but for goodness sake, we NEVER let it affect our sleeping pattern or schoolwork. And we do all that so efficiently and with such grace!

    Don’t you agree? Just take a look at my average Wed- nesday!

    8:00 am Five more minutes please! 8:20 am Why did I have to sleep so long? Now I’m already late! 9:00 am *Eats breakfast while simultaneously doing makeup* 9:17 am *Biking faster than contestants in Tour de France* WHY CAN’T I EVER WAKE UP ON TIME? I really need to move out from Saksala, it’s too far away. 9:29 am Barely made it to the lecture! 10:45 am Snack and chat break! Lemme finish my breakfast. 12:00 pm Lecture done, moving on to a lunch meeting with Probba board. 12:39 pm Meeting done, time to get some groceries. So much stuff to do. 12:56 pm Oh yes, oranges and spinach pasta! Choco- late? NO! I must stay strong. 1:30 pm I’ll just go get workout clothes from Saksala (sigh) and then it’s gym time! 2:57 pm So hungry. 3:30 pm WHY IS THIS PASTA NOT DONE YET?! 4:10 pm Shoot, I have to pack for tonight’s sleepover! 4:32 pm It’s makeup time! I have never looked wor- se (girl… that contour though), but I must com- mit to this ghetto look. How am I already late again? 4:45 pm Yay, fishnets, this ghetto-themed Pentti outfit is way too accurate.

    5:05 pm I look ridiculous. I look like I live in Tuppu- rala. 5:45 pm Opearation evacuation from Saksala. 6:03 pm Uh-oh, the Saksala club revolution. 7:23 pm Uh-oh, I don’t like this Twister. 8:48 pm OI SAKSALA! The situation is very much S.O.S. Very many Vergi can’t even count. Ralli-english is now my english. 9:10 pm Oh sweet McDonald’s nuggets, how good you taste! 10:28 pm I MADE IT TO PENTTI! I want to parrr- ty but me so sleepy… This disgusting old couch… So comfortable… 11:05 pm I still have no idea what the lyrics to ´Hero of War´ are. 11:27 pm I can make it to Kellari! 12:14 am I can’t make it to Kellari. 12:27 am Mmm cheese and crackers… 1:52 am Oi mate, forgot my face wash, I’mma borrow yours. 2:17 am Annnnddd I’ll set an alarm for tomorrow morning. This morning? At nine. The online lecture starts at 9:30. Okay, I can make it.

    See? Just amazing.

    I seriously feel like my brain is incapable of adjusting itself to this terribly hectic Mikkeli lifestyle. Hopefully this jet lag will wear off eventually. If your struggles are similar to mine, take a look at this issue’s articles. I sure will. •

    Editor’s Note

    Linh Tran, who has the highest GPA amongst the 15s, doesn’t try to learn new things by heart. She has a more effective technique – she tries to create mea- ningful connections between new information and the knowledge she already has. Tran favors mind maps, finding text-to-text connections, and trying to conne- ct the text book concepts to real life examples. Sounds more fun than just trying to remember a bunch of in- dividual sentences, eh?

    Time management is one of the most usual issues Mikkeli students suffer from, as our curriculum is very hec- tic. Tuukka Vettenranta, the former chairman of the Probba board, encou- rages prioritizing. He says that there is never too little time, it’s only a mat- ter of priorities. Not everything has to be – or can be – done perfectly, just do the best and most efficient job you possible can in the given time you have.

    “Do something today so you don’t have to do it tomor- row” was one of Anna Garant’s tips. The former mas- ter of ceremonies prefers setting goals for the future to make studying more meaningful. She also recom- mends scheduled study sessions and highlights the

    importance of breaks, teamwork of study buddies, and getting rid of distractions (never study with your pho- ne, never). Marja Elonheimo, who is a planning officer and a team leader of learning services in Otaniemi campus, has a more scientific twist on learning. She emphasizes the importance of motivation: if you are interested in what you are learning and enjoy it, you’ll have the motivati- on to learn new things in a deeper, more organized le-

    vel. Strategic learning leaves engrams in your long-term memory, where you can retrieve that information later.

    When you’re externally motivated to learn a particular subject, you may be studying only for the grades. Howe- ver, this only leaves more superficial engrams in your short-term memory,

    which means you’ll forget the things more quickly. Re- member to recognize your motives, as it helps you to change unwelcomed study patterns.

    When you have prioritized studying over Netflix and are about to open your textbook, remember to find connections between concepts, ditch your phone, and think about your motives. These tips may up your stu- dying game to the next level. •

    Text and picture by Aino Saarelainen

    Aiming for a higher GPA? Look no further. In February, the BScBA 16s’ class representatives or- ganized a learning workshop. The event featured our own students’ study tips, as well as a guest speaker’s lecture. Here are the best guidelines combined.

    ”Do something today so you don’t

    have to do it tomorrow.”

    Meet the New BABU Board

    For a short but (hopefully!) memorable personal description, I found those five phases would portray me best: (1) An extroverted introvert. (2) A creative maverick. (3) An aspiring economist-to-be. (4) A down-to-earth dreamer. (5) A full-time life-lover.

    - Felix, Advisor

    The new board of BABU, Mikkeli’s own business club, has been chosen, so it’s time to get to know the board better through these short introductions. Remember to keep an eye out for their upcoming events!

    Of course I am excited to join the new board with my amazing teammates. As I will be in charge of tailoring the detailed plans for our upcoming events, I am ea- ger to receive your feedback and sugges- tions so that we can improve altogether. Let’s roll to work. - Rachel, Content Manager

    My main passions include philanthropy, travelling and learning new languages. I am very excited for the next year being a part of BABU. - Elsa, Logistics and External Coordinator

    I am dedicated to make you know BABU events and want to join! - Franklin, Marketing Manager

    I am proud to be a responsible, funny, and energetic advisor. - Noah, Advisor

    On March 1st, the corridors of the campus were filled with Babas from various generations, when the annual event Career Day took place. A group of alumni returned to their good old school to tell the students about what they have done after having gra- duated from Aalto.

    The range of companies represented was diverse – Ro- vio, Alma Media and OP among others. The presentations that I listened to were Vainu.io, L’Oréal, Accenture and Unile- ver.

    A t h e m e that was brought forth

    in all of the four presen- tations was marketing. For

    example, Miikka Jokela from Vainu.io presented pro tips on

    how to make a successful career in marketing. Among other thin-

    gs, Jokela mentioned that you should start blogging, learn to code, and most

    importantly: fake it till you make it.

    Minna Martikainen from L’Oréal highlighted the im- portance of effective team work, as well as the signi- ficance of knowing what your customers really want from you and your products.

    Julia Romanuyk, who graduated from Mikkeli only few years ago and currently works at Accenture, point- ed out in her presenta
