On August 5, 2012, the first ever Acquaintance Party by the new student organization under the Computer Science Department, the Dynamic Communication Society, was held. Coincidentally, it was the first party at the beach – Maribago Bluewater Resort.
The theme was Bridging the Gap under the Sun, hence, the title of this post. 🙂
The party-goers had a great time, right? Looked like they had fun.
Anyhoo, i was part of the team that organized the whole shindig. 🙂
The whole Dynacom Council planned the event and made it all possible. Approaching lots of possible sponsors, getting rejected by some, many council meetings (most of which I couldn’t attend teehee), all the worries (of the weather! of traffic! OF MONEY!), one sleepless night and a day of manual labor – it all came to fruition. (As wrote the previous sentence, I thought “hmm. It became a yummy fruit salad.” corny, much?)
Many things did not go as planned, the specifics of the venue, the flow of the program, the late arrivals… I will not share much of it because i think they weren’t glaringly obvious to the people who attended.
By the end of the day, I just couldn’t take it anymore. With no sleep at all from the night before, I was finding it hard to walk around near the end. 😦 So, I got on the bus & went home earlier than the other officers… only to go to Handuraw and have an “after party” with some friends. I could never refuse free pizza!
Despite the stress, it was all worth it. When I read all the feedback from the students part of the organization, I was overwhelmed. They had fun. They had a wonderful time. The day was a success! Hopefully, the rest of the events in store for the organization will receive the same reaction, too. *crosses fingers*
