Origo is a student organization for Area and Cultural Studies at the University of Helsinki. Our main focus is on European studies, Latin American studies, and North American studies. As a student organization, we aim to protect the interests of the students in these fields and to support their academic and professional growth. We also wish to promote and raise awareness about area and cultural studies as a field.
In addition to area and cultural studies students, we welcome any students from any other fields who are interested in the world and its great multitude of cultures. Also all international students at the University of Helsinki are welcome to join the organization and our events.
Throughout the year, we organize events related to academics and career opportunities as well as social gatherings to celebrate different cultures. Follow us on Facebook to stay tuned!
