Approaching the 2nd month of the movement control order (MCO) as I look at the ceiling while the ceiling looks back at me, it is without a doubt that the introverts are having a blast during this period. Not forgetting the fun we college and university students have to live without. Rock cafe, black ink, pyramid, lunchbox and not to forget, bubble tea.
Freshies Night that almost a thousand students were expecting in April has been cancelled due to the pandemic. However, we were lucky enough to interview the organizing team and to spill some tea on things to expect after MCO is over. Freshies night has been an annual event since 2011. It is a night to share the Sunway culture through food, dance, music and all-round fun. The time where social media would be blasting with tweets and hashtags. Well, isn’t that why we are known as the #mosthappeningcampus? Continue reading Freshies Night 2020
On Friday, 13 March 2020, Social Hive’20 organized by Sunway College Council (SCC) was held in the Art Gallery from 5pm till 8.30pm. Social Hive is an annual social event that allows students (especially new intake students) to mingle and socialize while also providing the students a great chance to showcase their amazing talents. The theme of this year’s Social Hive was “2000’s and pastels”. Despite the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, it was great to see that the outbreak did not dull the Sunway spirits. Speaking on the topic of the Coronavirus disease, one thing worth mentioning was the conscious effort from Sunway College Council (SCC) members regarding the safety of the participating students. Throughout the event, they were constantly reminding the students to keep themselves hygienic at all times. (Go wash your hands if you are reading this!). Continue reading Social Hive 2020

As we have hit the year 2020, single-use plastics are constantly being dumped into the ocean or not properly allocated. This has become a concerning issue not only for the older generation but for the future generation as well. After many heartbreaking incidents of plastic straws getting stuck onto a turtle’s nostrils, it has brought awareness throughout the globe that plastic straws are harmful to sea creatures. Thus, environmentalists have joined forces to deal with this concerning issue.
From the 2nd of March till the 6th of March 2020, Sunway Branding Department, with the help of Sunway Environmental Society, worked together in organizing #TheLastStraw marketplace which hosted various interesting booths right here in the Boulevard. Continue reading The Last Straw Marketplace

The event’s purpose was to combine fashion and drama in order to send a strong message about global warming and it’s irreversible consequences.
