Hello Marianopolis,

Ying Ge, the VP serving as the primary liaison between Congress and MSU clubs, suggested that club executives use Google Meets as a platform to organize meetings and one-time events, instead of Zoom. Due to Zoom’s time limit of 45 minutes and its limited number of participants on Messenger, Google Meets is likely more efficient.

Laurence Liang, the Coordinator of External Affairs, in collaboration with Cherry Ying, the Coordinator of Charities and Volunteering, is organizing a virtual job fair and volunteering opportunities online on Thursday, April 16 from 6-8PM for students looking to work and volunteer during the pandemic. There will also be opportunities for students who are interested in participating during the summer.

Furthermore, the tech committee has finished working on an MSU app that is now available. Students are able to download this app and visualize the upcoming events that will be happening throughout the whole semester.

The Shave to Save event, organized by the Coordinator of Charities and Volunteering Cherry Sun, is no longer an in-person event. Students participating in this event will record a video themselves cutting their hair in collaboration with Marianopolis Broadcast Network. The participants will also have the opportunity to share the reason behind their involvement in this event on the Marianopolis World Review.

Darya Jabbari, the Coordinator of Social Justice, is working on organizing an art and gallery photography during the beginning of May. As Earth Day is coming up on April 22, Darya will be hosting an Earth Day bingo for students to see how environmentally responsible they are, to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

Finally, Congress is working on answering all students’ concerns posted on Google Form.

Don’t forget to stay home and stay safe!
