CUMaSKini 04/10/12: The Freshers’ Edition

CUMaSKini Header

4th October 2012

A very special welcome to the Cambridge University Malaysia Society (CUMaS)!

If you don’t know who we are yet, here’s a quick introduction: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fe9ldY7Epac.

For those new to Cambridge, we hope you’ve had a great Freshers’ Week! The time to buckle down and start working is upon us, but never fear; CUMaS will be holding loads of events this term to ensure you’re never bored. For those returning to Cambridge, well, you know what it’s like, except this year, it’s probably more difficult. Good luck!

First on the agenda is the Freshers’ Squash coming up this Saturday, where you can meet the freshers and seniors who make up our society. Also, if you’ve yet to join CUMaS, this is the most convienient place to become and member (and enjoy our various benefits!). Once you’ve RSVP’ed for the Squash, have a look at our term card for the coming term (on our brand new website). And maybe, perhaps, have a look at the CUMaS Sponsors for this academic year.

As always, our online Jumble Sale remains open for business.

Finally, if you have any questions or feedback about CUMaS, send us an e-mail.

1. Freshers’ Squash

Date: Saturday, 6 October 2012

Time: 2 p.m. – 5 p.m.

Location: Jesus Green

Cost: Free!

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/151964181614287/

What better way to spend the first weekend of the first term than to have an afternoon of finger food, games, chatter and fun in the great outdoors. Whether you’re a senior catching up with fellow seniors and meeting new freshers, or you’re a fresher meeting new seniors and bugging them for advice… we assure you that you’ll have a light-hearted stress-relieving time.

You can drop by and leave whenever you want. And best of all, it’s free of charge (yes, including the food!).

P.S. Although there’s no formal registration process, it’d be jolly good if you could confirm your attendance on the FB page above so that we know how much food/snacks to get! Don’t want to leave anyone hungry do we now? 😀

2. Term Card 2012-13

If you haven’t already, check out our term card at http://www.cumas.org/?page_id=362. Dates marked with an asterisk (*) are confirmed dates; we are working hard to pin down the rest of the events as soon as possible. Updates to events will be sent by CUMaSKini (this newsletter).

Speaking of which, you might have noticed…

3. New Website

…our new website! We’ve moved to a new server, redesigned the website, improved navigation, and made it much greener.
