Today a few of us went to Diversity Week in the ICC to show children how to make lanterns! We showed them the Taiwanese paper lanterns that are put into the sky but we went with simple paper lanterns due to fire hazards.
On Saturday, a few of us Eboard members headed to Boston University at 11AM for a whole day of ITASA (Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Student Association) Leadership Retreat. There were lots of ice breakers and group discussion games.
We discovered that each school has their individual system of organizing events and meetings due to the varying number of members. We also skyped the West Coast ITASA Leadership retreat.
Our big event of the year was a blast! Nothing more exciting than blasting party/Taiwanese music in the Brandeis ICC patio area with tons of free food and games for students to experience a little bit of a Taiwanese Night Market ambiance!
Popular go-to treats seemed to be: boba milk tea and tang hu lu (sugar coated fruit). TSA also prepared scallion pancakes, tea leaf eggs and shaved ice.
A shout out to the clubs who brought their energy to the night market and made this event a success:
-BAASA for your delicious hand-made crab rangoons and cookie racing game!
-JSA for your cute fishing balloon game and dango!
-SASA for your hot and spicy samosas and pin-the-bindi!
-BC3 for your variety of dim sum treats and bottle ring toss!
-SEAC for your Pisang Goreng/fried plantanes and candy!
Also THANK YOU to those who volunteered through TSA to spend their Friday to help prep in the kitchen and work during the event:
We are Brandeis TSA recording our memories that we would like to share :)
