4rd March 2014

What’s the word, hummingbird?

Me again.

I know, I know, I’m sick of me too. But look, I come bearing thee news!  Much news!

First off, presenting the Candidate Manifestos for the AGM 2014! Come watch your candidates fight to the death politely discuss their vision and capabilities as they vie for your love and support at our AGM next week. Also, don’t forget to sign up on the Voter Registration Form prior to the AGM.

With less than a week until MNight, don’t forget to purchase your tickets now before they all sell out! All tickets enter a raffle for free St. John’s formals!

In addition, we’re are in the Final 12 hours of the UKEC MNight Trailer Competition. So far, the support we’ve been receiving from all of you in the UKEC MNight Trailer Competition has been incredible! But we’re not calling it quits just yet. We still need a little push to achieve our goal of 5000 likes, so get sharing and liking! We promise you there will be a couple pleasant surprises along the way 😉

This video of us taking to the Cam like the majestic creatures we are, for example.

1st March 2014

What’s the scoop, mushroom-soup? 🙂

Just a quick reminder that the deadline for the CUMaS Committee Manifestos is this Sunday! Also, with just over one week till the AGM, don’t forget that voter registrations are up. Whether you’re voting in person or by proxy, you’ll need to sign-up so we know we’re meeting quorum (yay, quorum!)

MNight is also fast approaching, so get your tickets now! Catch the CUMaS production of the year (also our only production of the year). Join our mismatched group of unlikely heroes as they attempt the ball crash of the century!

And while we’re on the topic of MNight, our trailer’s been entered into the UKEC MNight Trailer Competition in the run for £1000! This is money that would go right back into our events for you, making them bigger, better and more subsidised! But to win, we’ll need everyone’s help! That’s right, we need you! So, please check below for more details.

Teach For Malaysia also sends their regards and has a little thank you message for the great questions you had for them at our Education talk.

The Cambridge University Chinese Orchestra Society Annual Concert is also tomorrow, so check below to get tickets!

Let’s have a good Week 7, everybody!

5th February 2014

So what’s the deal, banana peel?

Happy belated Chinese New Year!

“Didn’t we just have New Year’s?”

“Yes, but what about second New Year’s?”

And what better way to rein in the Year of the Horse than reading this glorious newsletter. Recommended by four out of five dentists.

To get the figurative, imaginary ball rolling, a quick reminder for those who have signed up and paid: the CNY Lunch+Karaoke  is this Saturday. CUMaS will also be launching its Speaker Series later this month and our MNight Trailer will also be airing soon, so get  so keep an eye out for that.

Also, for those of you who ordered CUMaS stash, these snazzy blue jackets are now available for collection, complete with that new jacket smell! Mmm, cotton-polyester blend…

And speaking of new things that smell (lovely, I’m sure), we’re now accepting Manifestos for a new shiny CUMaS Committee!

We are also surveying interest/questions for an MIT Skype Session for members interested in applying to the States for Graduate Masters/PhD programs. Let us know what you want to know!

Also, our friends from ABACUS are having a Welcome the Horse Funkyard @ Lola Lo. Gee, I don’t know who this horse is but he must be pretty special! Get your tickets below!

A little further away from the ‘Bridge, our good buddy ol’ pals from Oxford University Malaysian Club are hosting Malaysia In.Spires 2014, an exciting  conference featuring current prominent Malaysian personalities. If you’re interested in attending, check out the proposal attached.

Spires not really your thing? Why not try some emerging markets? More interesting than submerged markets! LSE SU Emerging Markets Forum registrations are now open. Check below for more details.


Busy, busy start to the Year of the Horse, huh?

Saddle up, you’re in for ride!

CUMaSKini 13/03/2013: Hello, Goodbye!

It’s the end of Lent, and the beginning of winter…

We hope you enjoyed the AGM at Newnham yesterday! We had a very fun Hustings, free food, and a little electorial drama (recount!) to spice up the meeting. Congratulations to the newly-elected committee for 2013/14! With the end of the AGM comes the end of the current committee’s reign of terror, so please support the incoming committee who, we are sure, will plan a fantastic year ahead for CUMaS!

Not to forget (this is a newsletter after all), our platinum sponsor Celcom is currently screening applications for their graduate programme. If you are interested, see below for more information.

Finally, with this comes the last issue of CUMaSKini by the 2012/13 Committee. We hope we’ve served CUMaS and you well, and we thank you for your support over the past year. Below you can find our goodbye messages to all of you. Thank you for making CUMaS a truly amazing society to work for!

Sekian, terima kasih.

CUMaSKini 10/03/2013: CUMaS AGM Tomorrow, Research Survey

Winter is coming… again. As Lent term ends, we find ourselves in a similar position as we were at the end of Michelmas; that is, tightly curled up under a blanket with a cup of hot Milo nearby.

But Monday arrives soon, and we all have to leave our warm shelters eventually. So wrap up tight and head on over to the CUMaS AGM tomorrow evening at Newnham College. Highlights include complaining to the current committee on our lack of response to the sudden cold weather chill, and watching young’uns convince you to vote for them while shivering (cold? nervous? who knows?).

Important reminder: If you’re unable to attend the AGM (snowed in, attacked by sentient snowmen, etc.), please register for proxy voting by tonight! Details are below.

Finally, we have a survey by an undergraduate doing research on Malaysians studying abroad.
