Academy Weekly: Runway-Ready

The month of May is turning out to be a really fashionable one, busy though as it may be. We know, the finals is just lurking around the corner, but that shouldn’t stop you from squeezing in some fun activities to your campus life so you can have balance to your otherwise all-academics schedule.

Not sure what we mean by that? Check out what went down on the blog last week, April 29-May 3.

On to Summer and Beyond

Tis the season for the finals, but also, it is the season for college application results. For high school seniors, this waiting game can be a source of major anxiety. For those of you who got in where they wanted, congratulations! For those of you who didn’t quite get it, don’t worry too much. We have here some helpful tips on what to do and how to deal with college rejection.

As we welcome this month, we also take the time to recognize and appreciate the contribution of the AAPI community to society in general. Expect more on our own AAPI Academy members in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, for those of you moving into the next sem, especially for our freshmen, we’re so proud that you’ve made it this far. There’s always room for improvement, though, and we mentioned above, it will always be a good idea to strike that balance between schoolwork and an enjoyable campus life. For that, we’ve asked some student-athletes for practical, helpful tips. Take their word for it; they would know.

NXT UP Fest also happened last week, which showcased student film work.

All Fashion

And now for the fashionable bit!

As you may well very know by now, the Graduation Fashion Show is happening this weekend, May 11th. In anticipation of this event, we’ve rolled out a series of articles featuring the participating student designers.

We’ve also rolled out an IG contest for the best #OOTD. Everyone’s welcome to join! Cool prizes up for grabs!

Get to know the creatives behind the runway, and see what you can expect from their collection at the show. Don’t forget to RSVP to the event while you’re at it!

We also have several RSVPs headed your way, from film screenings to theater plays, exhibits and esports events. Course highlights, areas of interests in campus and beyond are also lined up.

Needless to say, there’s plenty of reasons for you stay tuned, so bookmark this blog if you haven’t already!
