Freshmen points are a list of different activities you need to conduct in order to achieve a tech student cap ("teekkarilakki") in possible Wappu. Freshmen points introduce you to Prodeko and teekkari culture. Almost all students who starts Prodeko as a bachelor student want to have their cap and thus collect points into their Freshmen point card, but this is possible also for master students if they want.
