SMUSA VALENTINE'S DAY
This year, we had our first physical Valentine's Day event where we had a decorated photo-booth. We wanted to collectively bring students together, their friends and their loved ones and to celebrate the start of a physical semester.
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: BLAST OF LOVE
To celebrate the start of a physical semester, The SMUSA Experience: Blast of Love with SMUSA is aimed to collectively bring the whole school together as one.
This initiative was a collaboration with SMU Bizcom and The Blue and Gold (TBNG). It was put forth to revitalize the school spirit with the provision of goodie bags filled with unique card designs by TBNG and vouchers procured by SMU Bizcom.
SMUSA WELFARE DRIVE
To boost student morale during peak seasons in the semester, SMUSA organises Welfare Drives to cheer SMUSA members on to push through gruelling exam and project weeks. The items range from the trendiest food to the most popular stationery items. As all undergraduates are SMUSA members, everyone is eligible to collect SMUSA's welfare, so do look forward to SMUSA's Welfare Drives!
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: IT WILL BE OKAY!
This semester, SMUSA themed the welfare drive It Will Be Okay! to cheer students on as they prepared for finals. In line with SMUSA’s focus to promote mental wellness, SMUSA collaborated closely with Mrs Wong Kok Leong Student Wellness Centre to empower students to look after their mental wellness during this challenging period.
We adopted a Bring-Your-Own-Bag (BYOB) approach and encouraged students to bring their own bags to collect the goodies. The goodies included a card with a note from SMUSA, study essentials such as a folder and writing pad, snacks and drinks.
In addition, we featured a feedback booth this semester to promote our pigeonhole initiative and provided a platform for students to voice their concerns and feedback
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: PICNIQUE WITH SMUSA
SMUSA’s second welfare drive of the year took on a sunny picnic theme with the objective to spread warmth and cheer on SMUSA members during the hectic midterm season. In spite of the prevailing social distancing measures, Picnique with SMUSA aimed to emulate the vibrancy of a picnic one would traditionally enjoy with friends and family.
The welfare packs featured a delightful combination of self-care items, like skincare samples from La Roche-Posay and Face Republic, handy foods and drinks that one would bring on a picnic, and colourful customised Picnique with SMUSA merchandise, including a reusable food bag contributed by the SMU Libraries.
SMUSA's Biannual Event is held once per semester to bring students together and enhance student life in SMU. Every biannual event is different, unique and will surely bring surprises to spark some fun in your student life amidst the academic rigour.
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE:
THE FINAL GAME
The SMUSA Experience: The Final Game was a funfair held on the last day of the semester with the aim of encouraging students to develop stronger ties with their friends and to enjoy one last carefree moment before diving into the final push of preparing for finals.
Consisting of games like Family Feud and mini-golf, with chances to win attractive leaderboard prizes worth up to $20, The Final Game, the first of physical events to be brought back on campus, was definitely one to remember.
THE SMUSA EXPERIENCE: RECHARGE WITH SMUSA
In tandem with SMUSA's focus for the year, The SMUSA Experience: Recharge with SMUSA is aimed to motivate the SMU student community heading up to finals.
This initiative was a collaboration with SMU Libraries and was put forth to revitalize and encourage students through these challenging times through the provision of goodie bags filled with yummy snacks and essential items for students such as a planner as well as a tumbler.
