Division of Social Activities
The Division of Social Activities serves Chinese students and scholars mainly inside but not limited to ACSSS community. The past two years have witnessed our strengthened capability to bring joy to more Chinese in the Bay Area. The events that we hold are very diverse, mainly including Welcoming Party, Chinese Spring Festival Ceremony, Graduation Party and Chinese Singing Championship. Other events like Speed Dating and Werewolf Board Game Contest show our willingness to enhance students’ happiness. We are ready to embrace every opportunity to collaborate with other divisions of ACSSS or other student groups/clubs in related events, and will spare no efforts to create a more welcoming and entertaining community.
