We kicked off the Year of the Sheep by Chinese Student Association’s 3rd annual Lunar New Year Banquet on Saturday, February 21 from 6-9 PM at International House! This year, CSA had been working diligently with Cal HKSA - Hong Kong Student Association, Berkeley Chinese Students and Scholars Association-BCSSA, ISAB - International Students Association at Berkeley, UC Berkeley Thai Student Association, and many more to bring our members a wonderful evening filled with good food and performances.
On Feb13, the day before Valentine's Day, we went to the Shooting Star Cafe in Oakland and tenjoyed Karaoke afterwards! Here's the chance to find someone to bring light to your life! AKA we also randomly paired everyone up with another CSA member for dinner and a karaoke duet. (It's great, you don't even have to plan the date!)
To start off the Fall semester, we had our First General Meeting followed by Game Night on Tuesday, February 3th. We introduced our current officers and welcomed all the new members. Members also got an overview of our February events and learned how to play games such as Mahjong, Poker, and more! Don't worry if you missed this one! There will be plenty more throughout the semester.
CSA kicked off the semester with an entire week full of fun and exciting events - two boba runs with discount. These events are designed to help new and old students to transition into the new semester at Cal, and we welcome everyone to join us and have some fun before classes and midterms kick in. Be on the look out for more events to come, and if you really want to get involved in CSA, don't forget to apply to be an officer!
