[FIA]* Plans for FACT 2017

fact info gbm

 

What is up everyone!

FACT is right around the corner and we will be going to UIUC to meet up with fellow Filipino groups throughout the Midwest! If you are going to FACT make sure to attend our fourth gbm because you will learn much more about what FACT, how you will be getting there, who you will be rooming with, and what you will be doing when you get there. Make sure to attend all of your workshops because there’s so much you can learn from each workshop you took.

That’s all from me and I hope you all have fun at FACT!

Your Weebmaster,

Angelo Ong

 

[FIA]* plans for FACT 2016!

gbm4

Hey, y’all!

It’s that time of year again. We’re going to Urbana-Champaign and coming together with our fellow Filipino groups.

At this moment, the form to go with [FIA]* is closed, but if you can drive, please contact Marc Bernabe and Chris Vinzons at fia.vpexternal@gmail.com. Deadline for payment is October 28th (Friday). You can venmo us at @FIA-UIC or pay in cash to our treasurer, Nathan Salvador, or our VPE’s, Marc Bernabe or Chris Vinzons. The amount is $35.

But just because you completed the form to go with [FIA]* doesn’t mean that you’re all set to go to FACT. Be sure to register for workshops and research which workshops you’re interested in doing. This year, our very own advisor, Jeff Alton, is holding a workshop called “Am I Filipino Enough?”. Also, our former president, JR Ellasos, reminds us of the impact of social media in his workshop “Mayroon ba kayong Snapchat?: Social Media vs. Society”.

Every year, [FIA]* cultural performs at the variety show. Sometimes, FIA’liwan performs the American national anthem. Unfortunately, we were not chosen to be a part of it this year. But still come out and support your fellow Filipino organizations as they perform dances that reflect FACT’s theme, “FUSE: For Us and Everyone”.

Finally, be sure to support [FIA]* Modern at Canopy that night. Dress to impress and be ready to chant your heart out. Don’t know the chant? Learn it from our very own Mr. President, Eugene Villamater.

I hope to see you all at FACT!

Your webmaster,
Raizele Arceo

Ten contestants will be interviewed and you can anonymously bid on them through text message all throughout the auction until the highest bidders are revealed at the end. They’ve agreed to help us with this fundraiser by offering their time and talents!

GRAND BALL 2016

12671645_2941108524206_6798081734820759457_o

Many of us from various Asian American orgs on campus (including FIA) have been hard at work creating a formal for everyone, especially since we no longer have Sayawan. Together, we have created the Grand Ball (lol props to Michelle Pham for coming up with the name)! All of you who were waiting for Sayawan or Imperial Ball, sorry but this is the only formal you’re going to get because we all put our resources together to create one mega formal lol. We know it’s the same weekend as MFAS, BUT if you’re not going to MFAS then you should attend this formal! This will be a great way for you to meet other people, hang out with your friends, dress up fancy, have a nice dinner, and dance all night long!

You can pay via Venmo to me (RAJohnson228) or via chase QP to Gian (gcarregacho@yahoo.com).

Our theme this year is Candyland and it will be at La Villa Banquets!

Details are in the image attached and in the link for the tickets! You can buy tickets here:
