Welcoming Night: Cinco de MEcO is a project of the Internals department designed to welcome and form bonds between old and new members. This makes the organization more work-friendly and effective in the long run.
Shortly after being introduced to the Management Economics Organization and to their respective departments through General Assemblies, the new and returning faces of MEcO were greeted by a night of fun, food, and company. This year’s Welcoming Night “Cinco de MEcO” made sure that the members of the organization were well-bonded, welcomed, and ready to work for the busy year ahead.
Stories were shared, games were played, and bonds were formed. MEcO believes that this was how great years should be started—with food, games and a whole lot of fun.
MEcO has its core competencies namely Financial Literacy and Impact Investing. However, as equally important, is how the members of the organization are formed. Projects under Internals, like Cinco de MEcO, are what make that happen.
Veteran and fresh faces were present that night. Both old and new members interacting with one another was a sight to see, because that is the whole point of the event—to bring the old and new together to form one big family for the year ahead.
Vice President for Community Development, Paolo Rosete lunges at the MEcOBull Piñata because what is a Mexican themed party without one?
When all was said and done, hosts Luigi and Abbygale dropped their mics and gave way to the dance floor. ¡Vámonos de parranda!
Guests’ sweet tooth were satisfied by our generous sponsor, Pepero, who provided Casa MEcO with a supply of White Cookie Pepero.
The MEcO veterans had their fair share of fun, but they were not the true stars of the night. The real stars of the night were the new members, the freshmen of the year! The new Chiquitos and Chiquitas of MEcO no doubt had their fun. The warm smiles on their faces as they left Casa MEcO was a great indicator not only for this year, but also for the years ahead of them
