Join the trip to Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburgh) It's really worth to see!
Visit Savonlinna with the castle of Olavinlinna and the ridges of punkaharju (Rent a car and drive around a little bit, there are a lot of places worth to see!)
Rovaniemi on the arctic circle (a small ity with a Santa Clause Parc and Post office, a really interesting museum and rendeer farms and husky riding with a sledge!)
Take the ferry to stockholm and visit this beautiful swedish capital! (I was there 3 times)! Also the ferry is worth to see! (Viking Line - 11 floors with various restaurants and bars, take the buffet when you book the journey!)
Tallinn, the estonian capital is only 2:30 hours with the ferry from Helsinki and has a really nice old town (and cheap alcohol in comparison to Finland)
Helsinki is only about 2 hours from Turku and a quite nice town. (It's enough if you go there for one night!) You can see all sights on one day!
Take an international student card with you, which is valid for the whole study year otherwise you don't get a student reduction on the local buses in Turku.
Ask everything, if you are not really sure, because finnish can be a very confusing language and the people are quite helpful.
I'm sure, you'll enjoy your stay there!
