IEEC members, YOUR ORGANIZATION NEEDS YOU! So we all know that IEEC is one of the BIGGEST and most AWESOME student organizations on campus… well now it is our time to shine as we show ourselves off to the greater SF State community! The IEEC Open House is completely organized and run by US and it’s our opportunity to showcase what IEEC is all about to the public as we open our doors. We are banding together ALL of our committees and resources to work together for this event to create one of the BIGGEST events for the IEEC calendar! While we organise a few cool activities (we are brainstorming a special appearance by a great Dane DJ, food, competitions) we realise however that the biggest and BEST reason to join the IEEC is… YOU GUYS! Seriously we all know it. We are pretty damn AWESOME. So mark your calendars because we need EVERYONE in full force to show just how great the IEEC is! The BIGGER we get the more events that get organized and the more AWESOME we become. We strongly welcome any cool ideas you guys might have for the event - you can contact Alvi Ahmed, Helen Yeji See, Ariana Ferrari with these! But MOST IMPORTANTLY we want to see you ALL there to support this great organization!

Oh Yeah Yosemite!


Our camping ground is called Recreation Point, which is right next to Bass lake (that means swimming for the daredevils amongst us) and 14 miles from the entrance of Yosemite. There is limited space for 95 people and these spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. You can secure your spot by paying for a ticket beginning on Monday, September 22.

What does your ticket include?
Your ticket includes two nights of camping, tents (the people from the Special Events Committee will already set up your tents because we’re awesome like that!), sleeping pads, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday and dinner on Friday and Saturday.

What must you provide for yourself?
You must provide fuel, entrance to the park ($20 per car for 7 days), liability and collision coverage, BLANKETS/SLEEPINGS BAGS (really, don’t forget this cause it will be HELLA cold without them) and pillows.

We will offer you a variety of activities during this weekend. Of course we will be hiking (which will be free) but there will also be options like a Friday night tour. More details about this will come later on. Since we are renting cars we will need to know if you have a driver’s license, what’s your schedule on Friday and if you own a car or not. You can do this when you sign up and pay for the event. Based on this information, we’ll divide you over the different cars and you will get to know new people! :D


NBA Basketball: Brooklyn Nets @ Golden State Warriors

For everyone who loves basketball, this is an absolute must. This is a rare chance to see basketball on the highest level when the Golden State Warriors, the bay area's team, face the Brooklyn Nets from New York. Both teams played in the playoffs last year but didn't achieve their goals, so we can expect them to be very hungry this season. We will have the chance to see two of the best shooters in the NBA with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who play for the Warriors and recently won the Gold medal at the basketball world cup as a part of Team USA. In addition to that, we will also be able to see future Hall of Famer and NBA legend Kevin Garnett play for the Nets. There are also some international players on both teams. Festus Ezili from Nigeria and Andrew Bogut from Australia play for the Warriors, Mirza Teletovic from Bosnia, Andrei Kirilenko and Sergey Karasev from Russia as well as Bojan Bogdanovic from Croatia form the international group on the Nets. For anyone who doesn't care too much about basketball, this is still a great chance to experience the great atmosphere in Oracle Arena, home of some of the loudest fans in the league. Just imagine close to 20,000 people cheering for a team in a roofed building :)

Tickets are $29 and are limited to 30, so stay tuned on how to purchase them here!
