UNMC Valentine Speed Dating

UNMC Valentine Speed Dating

In conjunction with Valentine’s Day, SA Sustainability Network took another creative spin and organised a fund-raising event named ‘Valentine Speed Dating’. A charitable cause, the idea of the event was to provide a chance for students to meet and interact with each other. Profits from the fundraiser are channeled to charity through the SA grant. There were a total of 42 people, 21 pairs of mixed genders, who participated.  As with a typical speed dating session, the participants were required to switch partners after every session, each lasting between five to ten minutes. The ladies were seated with numbered tables, whereas the men were assigned a random sequence of numbers, and would rotate between numbers accordingly after each session, for a total of 7 sessions. The event lasted for approximately an hour. Comment cards were placed on the tables so that they could write a few words about each session as it ended and then drop them off in the respective lady/gentleman’s envelopes on one side of the room. Many participants left each other honest and encouraging messages. Some even had the chance to exchange contact details on the comment cards. According to participants, they had enjoyed themselves and some commented that it was not as awkward as they had initially thought it would be. Some said it was just like any other social event which granted opportunities to get to know new people. A few even asked for the event to be continued next year. Hence, if you missed the event this year, do not fret as you may have your chance next year!   ATTN: The next SA event would be...

Chinese New Year Celebration

Chinese New Year Celebration

Dong-dong-chiang! Firstly, the SA wishes everyone a prosperous and delightful new year, and welcome back to our beautiful campus for this Spring semester! In conjunction with the recent Chinese New Year, the SA collaborated with Nottingham Dance Club and our very own 24-Festive-Drums Team to bring you some exciting performances! The celebration kicked off with a graceful Chinese Fan Dancing performance by the NDC. This was followed by a heart-racing drum performance by the 24-Festive-Drums Team of UNMC. The drum team was founded in Malaysia in 1988. It was based on the 24 festive seasons recorded in the Chinese calendar (for example the Winter Solstice, Harvest Season, and Mooncake festival, etc.), and is unique to UoN Malaysia among all three institutions. Finally, our SA Executives went around distributing “Ang Pau”s which are red packets, the symbol of luck and prosperity in the Chinese culture, to our students who will hopefully be blessed all year round! Stay tuned for more events organised by the SA – such as the upcoming International Cultural Night (ICN)! Happy Chinese New Year & Gong Xi Fa Cai! John Lim Marketing &...
