About the student card stamps

Reference about the VAMOK's student card stamps in previous Vamok-info has caused some confusion. There are two kinds of stamps. One that says “Syksy 2004" was given for those who graduated / were supposed to graduate by Christmas 2004. In case studies still continues, it is possible to pay the membership also for the spring. The other stamp says “2004-2005" and it is
valid till the end of September 2005. Those who have this stamp “2004-2005" don't have to worry about renewing their stamps this spring.
