SQ507: Combined US Universities Pre-Departure Carnival

SQ507: Combined US Universities Pre-Departure Carnival

Transiting to life in the US can be an immensely intimidating experience, and since not all schools have the funds or time to organize their own pre-departure events, we've decided to organize a combined pre-departure event to allow incoming students to bond with students of other colleges and foster a more close-knit Singaporean student community. The carnival also provides a great opportunity for schools to connect with incoming students, and to forge relations with other schools in the region for future collaborative events. In addition to bonding, we will have childhood games like chapteh and airplane chess, to show our incoming students that we are still very much in touch with our cultural roots while in the States. Because the event is held at the sports hub, we will also have table tennis tables set up, and we intend to have an inter-school telematch over our national olympic silver medal-winning sport. High-school orientation games will also be played as a form of icebreaker to get our incoming students warmed up for the event and also excited to be as Singaporean as they can be when they begin their adventure in the States.

SotongFest 2015

SotongFest is an annual event organised by Club Singapore (of the University of Pennsylvania) which serves as a welcome session by current Penn Singaporeans for the incoming batch of Singaporean freshmen. The event aims to provide an opportunity for mingling/bonding between students (recent alumni are welcome too) and for upperclassmen to pass advice on adapting to life in the US/as an international student to underclassmen. Tea will be catered for the event.
