Wrapping Things UpMay 04, 2012
As the semester quickly comes to an end, we would just like to thank all of our members and faculty for supporting SCS. We had our semi-annual Aiea Bowl that was amazing! And although the faculty team won, there is always a chance to win next semester, students!
Our 2nd General Meeting on April 26 was very productive. We were able to find a bright group of students who were willing to become next semester's SCS officers as our senior officers pass on their duties to them. Our new team of officers for fall semester will be Dayna as President, Taylor and Justice as Co-Vice Presidents, Shari as Secretary, Esther F. as Treasurer, Kenric as Academic Chair, Jaymian as Social/Recruitment Chair, and Billy as Service Chair. Welcome to the team new officers!
The last event of the semester was our End of Semester party that was held today with the theme called Spring into Summer. We're glad to hear that you've all enjoyed it and we hope to bring even better events to you all in the future. All pictures of this semester's events can be located in the Events tab.

Having Relationship Problems?March 15, 2012
Come to the workshop on April 13! Dr. Manusov, a nationally recognized scholar from the University of Washington, will be sharing her knowledge on interpersonal relationships. Some of the topics that she will cover are communication patterns between romantic partners, communication strategies to use at work, and her most recent research on interpersonal relationships.

We have our highly anticipated ELI/NICE Bridge to Friendship coming up on March 13 at 3:00pm. to 4:30pm. in BUSAD Room A101. The purpose of this event is to bridge friendships between international and American students. Through this event we want to build international understanding, enhance intercultural communication, promote friendship, and provide a chance for students to share common interests. In all through this, help international students practice their English speaking skills, thus giving them a more rewarding experience of living abroad and to provide an opportunity for SCS members to network and make new friends from different cultural backgrounds. This event is free and SCS will be providing food and water.
In April is our Interpersonal Relationship Workshop by Dr. Manusov. More information about this event will be released in a couple of weeks. Also, there is a chance that we might have a volunteer event in between March and April. So for those of you that are trying to achieve active status, this may help you! Be on the lookout for more news throughout the upcoming weeks. Have a great day!
Valentine's... Date?February 08, 2012
Wow what an eventful past two weeks! Missed the events? No problem! You can check out our Events sections for all the events we've had during the semester so far. Thanks to all who generously volunteered their time to help with the Recruitment Tabling event. The semester is off at a fine start with lots of interested members who came out to meet us at the First General Meeting. And let's not forget about our awesome Beach Bash! Great food and great people.. who could ask for more? In addition to these events, is our most recent Team Course Workshop. Thanks to all those who came and RSVPed.

In March we will be having Resume Workshop and ELI/NICE Mixer event. The Resume Workshop is intended to help all SCS members polish up their resume and prepare them for future career opportunities. We recommend all members, especially our graduating seniors, to sit-in and learn how to make their resume stand out.
