The Council deals with improving the studies, acts as an intermediary between the students and the university’s leadership, and appoints student representatives to various councils and committees. It also organises events and promotes athletic activity. Traditional events include the Fox Party, Christmas fair, Graduation Party. In addition, various smaller events take place every year. They also support various leisure-time activities, eg EKA chamber choir, etc. Whenever possible, the Council also helps with student initiatives.
