Amidst all the deadlines, tests and impending finals, sometimes all we need is that extra push, that extra perk to study, and most importantly to know that someone cares about you. That is why HISSOC is there for you with our semesterly Welfare Giveaway, marking the first event organised by the 50th HISSOC committee.
Taking place last Tuesday to Thursday, our welfare director, Su Ru, together with her group of dedicated history members, stationed at the walkway along AS1 to give out the welfare packs to our HY and EU majors. Kudos to Su Ru and her team for the hard work they had put in to prepare the welfare packs!
Reception on the first day was overwhelming as many of our HY and EU majors flocked down to get their welfare packs. In fact, we had to ‘ration’ it so that those who weren’t in school on Tuesday could still lay their hands on one in the following days.
Apart from giving out the welfare packs, we also sold our History identity shirts. Being extremely well received last semester, we sent them for reprint and managed to get them just in time for the welfare packs. Sales of the shirts were brisk too, and if any of you still want to purchase them after seeing your friends wear them around, do contact any of our HISSOC Excos.
Of course these welfare packs are not just for students, but also for our wonderful professors and staff from History Department! It was a good chance for us to express our gratitude to them for teaching us and handling our administrative matters. Guess what― the day of the distribution to the staff coincided with Mr Tan Chye Guan’s birthday! Of course he was more than happy to receive the welfare packs from us.
Once again, thanks to everyone for supporting HISSOC. If you have any suggestions on what you hope to have in next semester’s welfare packs, feel free to comment.
