SASE Updates

Leave a comment

As you know, I’m involved in the on campus club Society of Asian Scientists and Engineers (SASE). For those of you who are less familiar with SASE, feel free to check it out here. But basically, SASE focuses on professional development, networking, and leadership opportunities. SASE also develop and support programs that aid Lehigh students from all majors who are actively seeking careers. However, it’s not limited to professional skills; it also promotes Asian culture awareness around campus by having cultural related events.

As the fall semester is approaching its end, I’d say that we had a very successful semester. We’ve had tons of events, both culture and professional. Many of those events had good turnouts. Some of the successful events from Fall 2014 include the SASE Spirit Week, which includs the Intern Panel as the biggest event of that week. Other events such as Dumpling Making, Chipotle Fundraiser, and Ice-cream social were also very successful. We raised over $200 dollars as revenue from the fundraiser. The biggest and most successful event of Fall 2014 was the SASE National Conference in Philadelphia. It has helped multiple club members to score internships and offers in their field of study.

In Spring 2015, there’ll be a SASE Regional Conference in Boston, which is going to be biggest event in the spring. That’s going to provide students with opportunities to network with professionals. It’s also going to develop student’s “soft skills” through participating in various unique exciting career workshops. In Spring 2015, we also plan on hosting professional development events in collaboration with ASCEND, which is the SASE equivalent of business school. Cultural Event such as Asian Culture Night and International Bazzar are some examples for cultural events. There’re many more events planned out, and we’ll keep you posted.

Stay tuned!
