The new semester is about to begin!

Shalom! It's been awhile since my last post. How are you? How was your holiday? Let's not talk about mine because my holiday has been so boring, I'm pretty sure everybody else was having a great time while I'm happy gaining weight. Haha!

Anyhow, It's about 3 days left until the new semester starts... at least for the fresh undergraduate students. Orientation week starts off on the 2nd of September, if I'm not mistaken. But for the "old ones" like me, we'll start off on the 10th. Hehe


As of now, the only update would be about the official t-shirt design of CUS 2012/2013. 

Most votes goes to this design; CUSers sure does love singing. Haha!

Since the design have been agreed, we shall proceed by ordering the shirt. I estimate the shirt will be done maybe in October. Most late would be in the mid of the semester. I really wanna try my best to make this shirt design not just be a 'design', but shirts, literally.

Oh yeah, if you have some spare time, do share this promo poster of CUS on your Facebook wall! :)


And, if you're a USM newbie visiting this site up, contact us! We would love to get to know you guys and expand the family tree!

As an introduction, you could look up to older posts to see the faces of the new board of EXCOs of CUS 2012/2013. We are based in USM, Minden, Penang, which is the main campus of USM. There are several churches that is available here in the island of Penang, but we usually go to the Church of Our Lady of Sorrows (OLS), which is near to Komtar. Some of us sometimes go to other churches like the Assumption Church, St. Francis Xavier Church, and Church of Divine Mercy. 

We held our usual CUS Weekly Gathering every Friday, thus we call it our Friday Gathering. However, we might wanna let all things settle down first, so I estimate that our first gathering would be on the third week of September. That is the usual time we get together and get to know each other better, do our sharings and discuss more on our faith. Attending classes and other activities could be stressful at times, and for some of us like me, attending the Friday Gathering made me calm, peaceful and joyful at the moment. 

When we try to find places, people often tell to 'Google it'. I'm sure when you're here in Penang for the first time, you will get difficulty in going to church. Don't worry, just contact us, and we can go together! We usually do that, we would gather at the bus stop together and go to church together. Any CUSers really love to help each others, y'know. So save our contact number, and contact us whenever you need help. Last time I got lost in Queensbay Mall, so I had to call Alvin, one of the CUS senior about which bus should I take to get back to the hostel. Hahaha

When the semester open, we will set up a booth for registration. Probably one week after the orientation week. The booth will be in DK Foyer. If you don't know where is it, don't worry, you'll know it eventually during your orientation week. 

Add yourself up in the official Facebook group of CUSUSM here: USM Catholic Undergraduate Society (CUSUSM). BUT before adding yourself into the group, it would be nice if you could add us first, just so we could chat and get to know each other first. Admin will not simply approve your request, y'know, because it is a closed group, and we wouldn't want no strangers in it. Only members of CUSUSM will be approved.

Anyhow, I'll see you guys soon, alright! :))))))
