ISD’s (International Student Departments’) welcoming event invites international students both new and old to celebrate the start of yet another semester here at ANU. After delaying the event by a week and switching the venue from Pop-up to the QT hotel, ISD was off to a bumpy start. MSO, among other language and culture clubs, held a booth during the formal event to promote ourselves to the international students on site. However due to the venue’s size being significantly smaller than the Rex Hotel (the venue last semester), the amount of participants was capped at 250 people. As such, there weren’t a lot of new faces to attract. But even so, the night was full of exotic dishes and light refreshments, which transitioned into a semi-night-club themed dance floor to cap it all off.
