Amusement and games during HSBA’s Amigo Mixer

 LONG BEACH, CA – The Hispanic Students Business Association (HSBA), held their Amigo Mixer, arranged by Membership Directors Reyna Valencia and Carlos Sanchez, on Sunday, September 11. Essential to starting the semester, the Amigo Mixer is a fun-filled event that allows the leadership team to bond with members. It also allows the Membership Directors to observe and have a better understanding on who would make a great amigo pair through HSBA’s Amigo Program. The purpose of having an amigo/a is for members to simply have a friend they can always reach out to and get updated on what’s going on in the organization. This event gives members the perfect opportunity to meet and interact with other college students.

In order to get to know one another, members and the leadership team participated in icebreakers, and were then formed into teams. This year’s theme was Minute to Win It, where individuals had the chance to represent their team by playing fun, exciting, and very interesting games. The majority of games consisted of collecting items and running towards objects in order to gain the most points. The games were challenging and fast-paced, but members and the leadership team cheered and shared laughs with one another. Everyone was better acquainted by the end of the day.

A lot of time and dedication was put towards planning a successful event, but HSBA’s Membership Directors enjoyed making the event possible. “We were very nervous before this happened, but I’m glad we got everything done,” Carlos said. “A lot of people had fun, and everyone just interacted well with one another.” Reyna and Carlos look forward to pairing everyone up with their amigo/a.

HSBA’s Ghost Invasion social raises scholarship funds

 

COMPTON, CA – The Hispanic Students Business Association (HSBA), held their annual Ghost Invasion Halloween social on Friday, October 28. Jesse Luna, social director of HSBA, planned and coordinated the event while having the ultimate goal in mind to raise scholarship funds for the organization’s members. Ghost Invasion is one of the biggest socials that HSBA holds in the fall semester, and their fundraising goal was accomplished by selling over 150 tickets.

The frightful Halloween social came alive with thrilling costumes, music, spooky decorations, and a photo booth that entertained the crowd. Students from various CSULB business organizations and other local universities were also present. In addition to the entertainment, a costume contest was also held, in which two lucky attendants won prizes.

Although there was a lot of time and effort put towards planning the social fundraiser, Luna enjoyed making the event possible. “As a social director, when thinking of what to expect, I reflected on a variety of things I loved about previous HSBA socials.” Luna said. “My goal was to sell over 150 tickets, and although it felt difficult to plan the event, there were over 150 individuals that had the amazing experience I had as a member.” Luna looks forward to continuing raising funds for scholarships.
