Week Six Update – The Great Gatsby Soiree, GCAP Presents Dr Filo, and More!



We here at GCAP are getting very excited for the two big events coming up in the next seven days. On Saturday 12 April, it’s time to get some glitz and glam on as we re-live the decadence from the 1920s at “The Great Gatsby Soiree”. Hosted poolside at the Hilton hotel from 6pm until 10pm, guests will arrive on a red carpet, be entertained by DJs and live performers, and take advantage of our 3 hour VIP food and beverage package that includes a selection of canapés, beer, wine, and soft drinks. Tickets are $20 for GCAP members ($40 for their guests) and can be bought at the Student Guild office, but only until Wednesday 9 April.

On Monday 14 April, “GCAP Presents” will be running its second event. Dr Kevin Filo will be talking about his time working for LIVESTRONG, the foundation started by Lance Armstrong. In particular, Dr Filo was heavily involved in the yellow rubber wristband project. Nowadays, every cause seems to have a wristband, but the LIVESTRONG ones were the first and started the massive trend. Come listen to the inside story at 6pm in room G30_1.09. The event is FREE and there will be canapés and light refreshments served after.

After all these great events, we do remember that there are studies to be done and assignments to be written. GCAP is running programs to help our fellow students. On Tuesday mornings in G11 3.61, we are running a “Shut Up and Write” program from 9am to 10am. We provide some tea, coffee and snacks, and you get an hour to focus on some writing.

Furthermore, on Thursdays and Fridays we offer a drop-in assignment help service. Swing by the Guild Office between 9am and 12pm with a printed off copy of your work and one of our experts will help you with structure, editing, and referencing. Check out the academic tab on the website for more information.

That’s it for now. Hope you have a great week. Work hard so you can party hard on Saturday!
