The idea of Port of LaureaSID
• Web site for Leppävaara campus
• Who we are? What do we do? What happens at Leppävaara
• Community of Leppävaara is more than students,
teachers and other staff
• We like to invite part of our community also potential
students and from Leppävaara graduated experts (present
working life experts)
• Port of Laurea (named www.laureaSID,com) is more than
web site, it will become the meeting point for
Leppävaara community

• News, articles, information
• Blogs (everyone can be blog writer)
