WOOHOO! What a great day! Today’s day started at the early hour of 10 am with a whole day of the team’s activities of choice. And wow did they do a lot. Here’s just a sampling of the activities from today….. HKUST enjoyed some smoked meat from Reuben’s while George Town opted for Celine Dion’s Schwartz sandwich. Texas A&M decided to channel their inner lumberjack and go axe throwing at a venue called “Rage”. Being the productive and wonderful students they are, McGill did homework and one of their team members even had an interview! Thammasat did some high flying with eagle flight, a virtual reality experience at the Phi Centre. Berkeley decided to have an “eat all day” kind of day where they apparently had a croissant at every stop. Budapest decided they wanted to go fancy and enjoyed a medium rare steak in Old Port. Belgrade and Calgary were feeling a bit sweet, opting for chocolate decadence at Cacao70 and Juliette et Chocolat. Our international team decided to go on a campus tour to check out the local competition. And finally, Melbourne and Asia Pacific were feeling very Québécois, choosing to enjoy some good old poutine. After all that adventuring, our teams headed to Notman House for a keynote presentation BDC. Teams were also treated to the final round of the MMICC local case competition. It was a close match, but congratulations to team Uncle Pennybags and Brothers on the big win! Currently, as this post is being written, Texas A&M is doing a very poor rendition of Kesha’s “Your Love is My Drug”. Needless to say, karaoke is a hit. Can’t wait for tomorrow!
Hello hello and welcome to MMICC 2017! We are so excited about the start of this fantastic event. This morning the execs and ambassadors had a quick meeting to check that everyone was on board with all the rules and procedures of the week to come. With a quick pop-quiz in good spirits we finished our meeting and got our MMICC t-shirts. Teams were arriving that day so the ambassadors were quickly dismissed and some left for the airport while some finalized last minute shopping.
We all met again for dinner at Wienstein&Gavino’s for delicious Italian food and great company. The Ambassadors and their teams had time to get to know each other before heading over to Brutopia for drinks.
Here was where the fun really started- the teams started to branch out and soon everyone was chatting with everyone, sharing laughs and stories from home.
Overall it was a fantastic start to the whirlwind week that is MMICC!
