Who are we?
We’re the University of Warwick’s Malaysian Students Association, one of the largest and most active cultural societies in the University. We exist to represent the Malaysian community of students in the University of Warwick. We also seek to promote the uniqueness that is Malaysian culture to the university and beyond.
At the Malaysian Students Association or MSA as we like to call it, we are one big family and the society has over 100 members who are made up of Malaysians, Singaporeans and Bruneians just to name a few. At MSA, you not only get to learn about Malaysian culture, you get to meet new people.
Yada, yada, yada. Let’s do away with the formalities, shall we? What are we really here for?
We’re here to provide you, fellow Malaysian student slogging away for your first class honours, with a home away from home – to show you that no matter where we are, us food-loving Malaysians will always find a way to get together, organise something, eat something (a lot), and have lots of good loud and noisy fun.
Not Malaysian? No worries. Even better – all this will be a fresh and exciting experience for you.
What do we do?
We basically hang around and be Malaysian with one another, our oft-suppressed Manglish in full display.
On a more serious note: Every year, we organize a whole plethora of events. You name it? We got it, really. Our events range from the cultural and the culinary (okay, you can just call them makan events instead), to trips and frequent sports sessions, to plain ol’ socials for you to chat one another up over a cuppa…Tesco’s apple juice and some potato crisps! Incidentally, DotA is not counted as a sport, but it may very well be one of those ‘socials’ mentioned. Keep your fingers crossed.
To read more about the events we organise, browse through the “Events” tab.’
What can you do?
Well firstly, join, of course. It’ll cost you a mere £3, which is what you have to pay to attend the Welcome Social if you aren’t a member, anyway. Sneaky marketing trick there, eh?
Besides that, there are billions of ways in which you can participate. Be it playing for us at Warwick and Nottingham Games, performing for or being on the crew for Malaysia Night, helping organise and execute any of our events, or simply sending your precious feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org, you are always welcome. Come hop on this train, and drag a friend along with you!
Should you want more information, feel free to email your loveable and friendly exec at the said email address about anything MSA-related. Add us on Facebook, talk to us. We’re here for you.
So what are you waiting for? Come on over and join in the fun!
