A big thank you to all of our general members for a great fall semester! It was definitely a semester to remember. All of our accomplishments would have not been possible without you guys.
A message of gratitude from some of our cabinet members:
I hope this past fall semester went well for y’all! I just want to personally thank each and every one of you for making these past couple months what it was. We could barely fit everyone inside the SU Ballroom at Open House, we constantly filled up the rooms at Info Nights and General Workshops, we brought home TWOOO trophies from Friendship Games, completely sold out for Winter Formal – and that’s not even all of it. You are the reason Akbayan is what it is. If you’re reading this and not sure whether to come out to future events, just give it a try! PCN is coming up and is a favorite memory of the year for so many of our members. As an older member of Akbayan, the best advice I’ve ever heard and can pass along is “You get what you put into it.” I know I sound like a (cool) mom and all, but whether this be one of your first or last active semesters, try new things with an open mind and make the most of your college experience. I can’t wait to finish out this academic year with y’all and make even more memories. By the way, please come up to me and say hi if we haven’t met yet – I PROMISE I’M NICE AND I WANT TO MEET EVERYONE! :)))
& to Level 40, words cannot express how much I adore you all and how immensely proud I am of how far we’ve come. Let’s KILLLLLLL IT this next semester.”
– Vice President, Caroline Clemente
“Hey Akbayan! What’s up? I just want to thank each and every one of you, and congratulate you all on an extremely successful semester! It truly meant a lot to see you all attend (and enjoy) our huge events like MaBOOhay, Friendship Games, and RAAP, as well as participating in our KAAMP and Internship Programs, and last, but not least, attending the workshops hosted by the Pillars. For those of you who are new, I encourage you to become/stay active – soak in as much as you can. For those of you who’ve been here a while and know what’s up, encourage those around you. I guarantee you Akbayan has a lot more to offer, you just have to dig a little deeper. Thank you for allowing Akbayan, Level 40, and myself, to inspire and educate you. If you thought Fall was awesome/crazy, Spring is on a whole new level. I wish you a happy holidays and happy new year! Enjoy your break!” – Cultural Chair, Carl Cortez
“To our beloved general members, THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU. Thanks for an incredible semester. We are so overwhelmed with joy at the continuous positive response and we hope you know how grateful we are for the opportunity to be a part of your Akbayan experience. Y’all make every ounce of work and effort that goes into our events and programs, SO worth it. This is all for you! Thank you for believing in us.”
