Each school has their own graduation ceremony, after which the graduates with their families gather for a toast and picnic outdoors in Alvarinaukio square. During the Graduation Party, the participants can enjoy food and beverages, music and a specific graduation pin ceremony.

Remember to visit the Graduation Party Exhibition! The exhibition in the foyer of Undergraduate Centre, Otakaari 1, showcases student works that have been developed and produced within the current academic year in all the six schools of Aalto University.

Graduation Pin, designed by Inni Pärnänen

The multi-awarded designer Inni Pärnänen and alumna of Aalto University designed the graduation pin exclusively for the Aalto Graduation Party. The pin can be attached to jacket collar, cuff or neckline. The middle part features the Aalto seal designed by Juha Markula, also alumnus of the university. The seal communicates the university’s values and academic spirit and it is only used on official diplomas in the academic context.
