Over the past few months, the Department of Finance has been on fire with some amazing engagement activities that brought together our Finance and Quantitative (FINA/QFIN) students, career mentors, alumni, professors, PhD students, staff, and their families. These events have been an absolute blast, creating a happy and engaging atmosphere, strengthening the bonds within our community.

The Lunar New Year Gathering was the first event of the year and a fantastic way to kick off the year. We invited everyone to celebrate together, and it was a smashing success.

The QFIN Sports Day was another hoot. We were so thrilled to see QFIN alumni participate with their families in various sports activities, including basketball, badminton, table tennis, and HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) Gala. It was a great way to get everyone active by introducing some friendly competitions. The Sports Day had something for everyone including a play zone for kids.

The FINA/QFIN BBQ Get-Together was the most recent event. We enjoyed the traditional BBQ style with delicious food and drinks. It was a great way to relax and unwind after busy weeks. We were so grateful to have career mentors and professors come and mingle with our students. Despite the challenging weather conditions at the QFIN BBQ, we demonstrated our resilience and teamwork emerging even stronger.

Overall, these engagement activities have brought the FINA/QFIN community together like never before with so much fun and strengthened bonds. We can't wait for more events in the future and to see everyone join us for the next adventure!
