It has been the tradition among schools that acquaintance parties are held for various departments. This is to welcome the freshmen and transferees to the department and to allow old and new students to have fun together. The entire faculty along with school personnel normally joins this party to warm students for the new school year.
Our school shall hold our acquaintance party this July and depending on the students’ clamor for formal or casual party, the location is to be determined yet.
Normally, when the acquaintance party is formal in theme, the ladies are on their long silk dress with proper make-up while the gentlemen are on their coats with mens ties in a lavish hotel dining room.
My old school before would rather hold our parties in beaches or resorts for a more informal event and wacky fun.
