The first Global BBA BDE (Bureau des Élèves, Student Council) campaign in Singapore took place at ESSEC Asia-Pacific over 7 and 8 November. Two teams, KuZKorona and RhuM’antik engaged with students on campus through activities such as a treasure hunt, breakfast, dances and PlayStation tournaments. The idea was simple: gather as many students as possible to vote for them during the election on 21 November! The students on campus were pleased to see lots of energetic Year 2 students eager to get to know them. There were tons of opportunities for students to bond and everyone had a great time. Prizes and coupons were offered throughout the days, which included a trip to Ibiza!
So what exactly is the BDE campaign?
It’s a campaign for students to vote for their student council. The voted team will then become the BDE for the year, and will take charge of holding events and student activities, as well as improving and contributing to the student life on campus.
Here’s a short introduction of the teams:
KuZKorona, aka KZK. Their mascot is Lama and they are the ones you see wearing blue!
RhuM’antik, aka RMK. Their mascot is the Roman Eagles and they are the ones wearing lime green!
These two days were lots of fun and many Year 1 students really enjoyed meeting the Year 2s! There were many entertaining moments such as when the teams performed a dance for us. Everyone was so friendly and nice, and we were constantly being offered free food!
