Spring 2017: Welcome Back Party and Chinese New Year Celebration (APACC)
Hi everyone! It's our first meeting for Spring 2017 and it was awesome. We got eight new students this semester, which mostly are transfer students and majoring in Statistics and Actuarial Science program. We started the event by introducing the current committees and the new students. We were also joined by Auntie Khadijah, one of Malaysians that is living in the United States.
Then, we proceed with the Chinese New Year celebration. Fortunately it was a potluck event that we got variety of food to choose from.
In this Welcome Back Party, we decided to hold Annual Grand Meeting to inform the students of our plans and activities for the semester. And the best part is; we introduce the House Point System. It is a newly implemented system to encourage our students to come to our event and work together. We divided all of our members to four groups based on colour: red, yellow, blue and green. Each group is responsible to contribute points to their group by attending and participating any of our event. All the points will then be cumulated and we will the group that collect most points will be rewarded at the end of the semester.
To start implementing the system, we played a few games. They were very fun, and intense too. Then, we took a group photo, and realized that we are not as small as we thought it would be. :)
