Finnish student life tradition: Coveralls with badges

Coveralls bring all students together and helps you to recognize your student colleagues from the colourful student crowds as we Humak students are all wearing the same color - RED COVERALLS!

You can make your coveralls personal by collecting and changing coverall patches in student events or buying them. It is possible to attach useful items to your coveralls – for example we at HUMAKO are selling shot glasses and champagne glasses made from plastic. Attach these to your coveralls and make celebrating easier!

HUMAKO is selling products that will make your life in the student culture more fun! You can buy all of these from HUMAKO web store and its always -50 % for members!

When you order the coveralls no later than 6.9.2020, you will receive them delivered to the campus for free on the HUMAKO tour, that you can read more below. Of course, coveralls are still on sale even after this, as long as there are enough sizes. You can try on coveralls at the beginning of your studies on your own campus from 31.8.-4.9., so you can get the right size coveralls. Please be quick and you will get the most suitable size for student trips!
