This Saturday, March 28, TSG invites us to join the Asia Regional Night. The weekend is packed with activities and starts off with the Preview Day and with the Asia Regional Night as the highlight on Saturday. Prospective students who will be visiting the campus are invited along with all T-Birds and their families and friends.
We learned that the Japan, Taiwan and China Clubs would put on the performances of the night. The organizers warn us to look forward to many amazing routines such as traditional Japanese instrumental music and traditional kung fu executions. The “Regional Photo Booth” will be set up and ready to go but guests should gear up to try some Sake (Japanese beer), Chinese Tea and Boba Milk Tea (authentic Taiwanese drink), and many Chinese and Japanese delicacies.
TSG Events Planning Chair Jonaki Moitra (MSGM ’15, India) sat down with us to share more details about the event.
What is the theme of the Asia Regional Night?
“The theme for this Regional Night is ‘Celebrations’. We have the Japan, Taiwan and China Clubs performing. There will be regional drinks like Sake, Asahi, Sapporo, Kirin, Chinese Tea and Boba Milk Tea. We have authentic food to look forward to, like sushi and dumplings! And don’t forget to stop by at the Regional Photo Booth and try out some regional dresses, drinks and desserts! Get your surprise gifts at these booths!”
Who else is invited along with T-Birds? How can we make them feel welcome?
“This time we are expecting many prospective students as it is the Preview Day on the same day. We are also expecting students from GPSA (Graduate and Professional Student Association at ASU) to join us along with the Regional Graduate Clubs of China, Taiwan and Japan. We encourage all T-Birds to talk about the Thunderbird Mystique. Let them know what is it to be a Thunderbird! We also have a contest for all preview weekend students. The Prague students are sending us a “Hello from Prague!” video.”
Wow! This sounds great. Where can T-Birds sign up if they want to participate in the program?
“As always all are welcome to participate. If you are interested you can contact Rouwei Wang (MBA ’15, China) at firstname.lastname@example.org, Akihiro Yamada (MBA ’15, Japan) at email@example.com or Wayne Huang (MBA ’15, Taiwan) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a dress code?
“There is no dress code, it is just casual or if you have traditional Asian dresses, please wear them!”
