WHAT WE BRING
The Events Portfolio strives to create unique and fun events that give students the opportunity to connect with their peers and corporates. Throughout this year, the Events Portfolio offers students the chance to network and bond through events such as Ignite, the annual Winter Gala, and Year End Banquet!
Hello friends! My name is Renée Yu and I am the BSA’s VP Events!
This year, my team and I are planning some of your favorite events: Ignite, Sports Tournament, Deck the Business Halls, Winter Gala, and Grad! A team ain’t no team without my amazing and hard-working directors: Anika, Marija, and Koko! Out of all the portfolios, it is pretty much a consensus that mine is the most fun to work with.
When I am not planning events, I am taking LinkedIn headshots of dapper-looking students, eating at least one poutine a day or laughing at my own jokes. Being in business should not just be about studying for accounting/finance exams for 24 hours or complaining about the “cliquey” vibe of the faculty! As someone who used to be uninvolved, I encourage you to do something about it – go to BSA events, make some friends and create some high-quality memories!
If I don’t get to say ‘hi’ to you this year, please don’t be a stranger and let me know if you want to be friends! 🙂
What’s up! My name is Ogheneochuko but you can call me Ochuko or Koko and I am the Charity Director for the 2018-2019 academic year! First, let me ask you a question: What does Charity mean to you? Charity to me means the opportunity to show your true character, to put into action your willingness to give back to the community; to volunteer your energy into a cause that could help a body of people. I am excited for what this year has to offer, and to give the Business Students Association the chance to give back and inspire change within our community through events such as the Deck the Business Halls, and our annual Sports Tournament. I am honoured to be in this position and if you have any questions or suggestions for me, please feel free to get in touch!
Hey friends! My name is Marija (I promise not to hold anything against you if you spell my name wrong, it happens… a lot). I am the Engagement Director for this year and my role is to plan some unforgettable events that are guaranteed to be some of your favorite parts of business. From Ignite weekend to Graduation banquet, these events will have you running, dancing, and partying all night long. When I am not hanging out in Bus Lounge you can find me drinking coffee, dreaming about traveling, or re-watching The Office for the 100th time. Can’t wait to work with my amazing team to bring you some incredible events and memories!
Hi friends! My name is Anika Garlick, and I am so excited to be your Social Director on the Business Students’ Association for the 2018-2019 school year! My responsibilities comprise primarily of putting together this year’s A-MAZ-ING Winter Gala; the highlight of our social season and an unforgettable evening dedicated to glitz, glamour, and celebration! When I’m not curled up in a cozy nook, coffee and book in hand, you can usually find me watching Tasty videos or lounging around Earls Happy Hour. If you have any cool ideas you’d like to share, or just want to come say hi, I’m always happy to chat!
