Why are Helga’s petrol blue coveralls?

As in other universities, Haaga-Helia uses student coveralls that are prominent in the student culture! At Haaga-Helia, we want to invest in one cohesive and equal community and that is why we have the same coveralls for each of our students. These coveralls are petrol blue equipped with both the Helga and Haaga-Helia logos as well as the logos of our partners. This makes it so that you will always recognize one from Haaga-Helia among the other multicolored coveralls.

What are the coveralls?

The coveralls are, as the name implies, coveralls. It is a student uniform used in student events. Coveralls protect clothing when worn during student events and picnics and will last even after graduation.

The coveralls also tells a story about the user: various accessories and coverall patches personalize the coveralls to look like their wearer. For example, you can see events in which the student has participated, as well as things that he or she thinks are fun or perhaps even controversial!

How to get the coveralls?

Coveralls can be purchased from Helga Point or the online store by picking up the product or selecting the mailing option. However, if possible, we recommend that you always try the coveralls before making the purchase, as the coveralls should be spacious enough and of a suitable length.

How are the coveralls worn?

When using coveralls, it is always important to remember the coverall etiquette:

§ 1 The student union’s coveralls are used at national as well as local student events. In Helga’s events coveralls are weared, unless it is specifically prohibited due to the dress code.

§ 2 The coveralls are not washed, but only ventilated if, for example, the smell requires it. Any stains are removed locally.

§ 3 Coverall patches are placed by sewing, not by gluing. It is a good idea to reserve the areas for annual event patches, such as the RaflaRumba Appro coverall patches.

§ 4 It is advisable to carry exchange coverall patches when leaving for events. Exchange coverall patches can be, for example, patches from your student union.

§ 5 Do not sew coverall patches on top of advertisements.

§ 6 Tutors shall place their tutor badge in a visible place on the left thigh of the coveralls.

§ 7 You can exchange the legs of an coverall with, for example, your partner. The sleeves of the coverall can be swapped as a sign of good friendship.

§ 8 In addition to coverall patches, various necessities may also be attached to coveralls. One of the good practical accessories is, for example, a shot glass. Be sure to also get a belt for the coveralls. In addition to this, you can, for example, hang your Wappu diploma in your coveralls.

§ 9 Your coveralls will receive an official baptism at the Coverall Baptism, which is typically held during the 8 Day May Day. Place the patch you received after the baptism on your back next to the text Haaga-Helia.

§ 10 When wearing coveralls, you are a representative of your UAS and the student union. Always remember to behave politely and consider others.
