Calvin's brief guide to ECAASU 2010: Do Your Research!

Hello ECAASU delegates! This is Calvin Sun, one of the Board of Directors on ECAASU National back from a brief trip at Philly and we're happy to say that everything is looking good and you're in for a treat. We figured we might as well give y'all a head start on this conference and give you a little peek on what to expect (i.e. so you DON'T GET LOST!!! We care about you).

Your Saturday workshops will take place in the following buildings (10am, 2:15pm, 3:45pm):

But to make your life easier, most of the Saturday workshops will take place at Williams Hall:

-

In anticipation of the afterparty, hone your/pick up some breakdancing and hip hop skills during the 1st workshop session on Saturday at 10am, which will take place in the Class of 1974 Lounge/Café 58, (inside Irvine, next to the auditorium):

-

After the 1st workshop session, send at least 2 delegates (as many of you are welcome!) to represent your school and vote in the ECAASU 2011 Conference Elections in Room G17 at the Claudia Cohen Hall (11:15am):

-

After a Colosseum-style election in picking the next ECAASU 2011 host, head to Irvine Auditorium to hear U.S. Congressman Mike Honda speak (12:45pm):

-

Go resume Workshop Sessions 2 (2:15pm) & 3 (3:45pm)! Again, most of these workshops will be in Williams Hall:

-

After the workshops, relish what you've learned and wipe away those tears at the Closing Ceremony at Irvine Auditorium (5:15pm):

-

Have your last sobering chance to impress that special someone and say your goodbyes at the Farewell Reception (FOOOOD) at the glamorous Penn Museum (7pm):

-

But it's not over yet! After the reception . . .

Don't stop, make it pop

DJ, blow my speakers up!

Tonight, I'mma fight

'Til we see the sunlight!

Tick tock on the clock

But the party don't stop, no (oh oh oh oh!)!

Take our shuttle bus over to the ECAASU Afterparty at Shampoo Nightclub (10:30pm)! (Shuttle Buses from the Sheraton Hotel will take you back and forth all night). Once you're there, find me on the dance floor.

-

I would tell you to go to bed again, but on an ECAASU Saturday night? That might not happen.

SUNDAY

Wake up in the morning and feel like P-Diddy. You did it. With a million memories and pictures behind you, it's time to go home (or come with me and a bunch of other delegations in continuing the ECAASU experience in NYC for 4 more days!).

See you at ECAASU 2011!
