Boatmania @ FH OÖ, Campus Steyr

The BOATMANIA is a very special social event at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Campus Steyr. Once a year students meet for an exciting challenge, the so-called “Boatmania”. Each Boatmania has a special motto. The aim is to design a fancy boat, including crazy outfits for the boatmen/-women that reflect the idea of the given motto.

The boat challenge is held on the Steyr, a river in the city center of Steyr. The participants present their creative designs to the visitors and students. Finally, a jury decides which boat is the most creative one.
