Pre-Departure Outing and BBQ for New Admits to UC Berkeley

Pre-Departure Outing and BBQ for New Admits to UC Berkeley

This event aims to bring together the Singapore admits to the University of California, Berkeley prior to their flying off later in August. This event reaches out to not only Singaporean freshman but also exchange students from NUS and NTU as well as international students who graduated high school in Singapore. The aim of this event is to kickstart a Singaporean community among this new batch of admits that would serve as a friend base that is culturally familiar, allowing them to maintain their Singaporean identity even as they embark on life in a foreign country. In this event, we will have various ice breakers and bonding games at Sentosa, followed up by a communal barbeque dinner at Labrador Park. We start off this event in Sentosa with casual ice breakers building up to bonding games, activities and sports to get them to know each other, and end off with a communal barbeque dinner at Labrador park as an ideal setting for conversations and friendships to begin.This event is primarily aimed at new admits, with a few alumni and seniors coming down to help out and interact with them, hence the total turnout of Singaporeans is not a lot - just around 20 Singaporeans and another 10 international students and Singapore PR's.

Pre-Departure Event for Singaporeans heading to Claremont

Pre-Departure Event for Singaporeans heading to Claremont

By bringing together Singaporeans who are heading to the Claremont Colleges this Fall, we hope to build a sense of community in Claremont. The Claremont SSA is just over 2 years old and very much in its infancy. However, over the last year, we have organized a slew of events to not only buttress one's connection to home(Singapore) but also build a social and professional network within Claremont Singaporeans. This event will be very much key to this effort as new students heading to Claremont will know that they already have a community there they can rely on. We also hope to ease the transition of Singaporeans heading to Claremont by having them meet Singaporean seniors and thus be able to ask any questions they may have as well as allay any fears. We would be bonding over some food and drinks which is what we require the budget for. Event Time: 3pm-5pm.
