Kota Samarahan, 8 October 2019 : Weekend With FEB (W2F) has always been the most awaited yearly event by FEBians and it has become a tradition in FEB. This year’s W2F, held on 27th to 29th September 2019, brought on another memorable weekend full of fun, laughter, and the beginning of many new friendships.
This annual event is when the first-year students get to bond with their seniors, members of their respective societies, lecturers and of course their peers.
W2F 2019 kicked-off on Friday evening, 27 September 2019, with ice-breaking sessions between the freshies and their respective program society committee members. This year, the fun was taken up a notch as each of the five program societies, namely FIN-ACE, SMART, SICMA, SPADE and UNIMAC had to come up with its dynamic cheers and also a creative society flag that symbolizes the society. The next morning, Saturday, 28th September 2019 was the most awaited and first ever Inter-Society Championship. The series of creative and exciting games brought on waves and waves of screams of excitement from all present, and the deafening cheers by members of each society for their team. The Inter-Society Championship turned out to be a great way to foster that bond amongst freshies and seniors of respective societies. The morning went off brilliantly, packed with fun-filled exciting games that teams of the five societies had to ‘’fight’’ their way through, to place their hands on the sweet FIRST Inter-Society Championship trophy ever!
In the evening, W2F 2019 Inspiration Night was graced with the presence of Professor Datuk Mohd Fadzil bin Abd Rahman, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Student Affairs & Alumni, UNIMAS) and accompanied by lecturers of FEB. Inspiration Night is an occasion where many talented FEBians confidently showcase their mind-blowing performances and the ever-so-fierce Hakka. The 20 groups of students performed to the theme of the night, which is ‘BOLD’. The Liaison Officers and facilitators were not let off as they too had to showcase their Hakka, which drew loud and energetic applause from freshies under their charge. W2F 2019 Inspiration Night ended with an impromptu dance by students, facilitators, liaison officers and the lecturers as well! Without a shadow of a doubt, many freshies went home feeling like they belong in the FEB family. And truly, we FEBians are most definitely one big family!
After a night full of laughter and fun, the freshies came back for more on the final day of W2F, Sunday 29th September 2019. The morning started with a meet-and-greet session by the ever-so-committed Deputy Dean of Student Affairs & Alumni, Dr. Norazirah bt Hj. Ayob and the HEPA gang. The highlight of the half day event was the prize-giving ceremony for the winners of the first-ever Inter-Society Championship, Best Performance, Best Hakka, Best Flag, Best Facilitator and not to forget; the Best Freshie.
To sum it up, the organizing committee; PERFEP, would like to express our gratitude from the bottom of our hearts to all participants that have made this event an astounding success.
