Another year, another milestone for our seniors. On the April 16th 2016, MaSA UIUC organize an annual dinner where we celebrate the class of 2016 in a glorious fashion to appreciate the achievements and accomplishments made by them! The night of Magnum Stellar. The event took place in ‘The Great Gatsby’ style where the ladies became the beautiful Daisy and the gents became their own charming Gatsby.

    The event started off with the arrival of the guests and then followed by the arrival of the honourable graduates escorted into the hall. Handsome gents and beautiful ladies, all smile in their best attires and great excitement.   

    Our two best hosts for the night, Kamal Suria and Alia Putri were in high-spirited welcoming everyone and interacting with the guests with their fun games throughout the night. The event later continued with Dua recital by sophomore, Ahmad Syafiq, and an introductory speech by our 2016/2017 MaSA President, Muazr Amer Hamzah.



    Dinner was served. A taste of Tuscan Mangia on the menu where we indulged ourselves with delicious Italian cuisine. The event then continued with an exchange of door gifts between the attendees as a symbol of appreciation to each other. As time passed by, everyone starts to mingle around and space was filled with laughter and joy.

    A short introductory video was presented on the screen starring graduating class of 2016. Up next were the anticipated performances by the Freshman, Sophomores, and Juniors dedicating memorable songs to the guests. The talented senior in Actuarial Science, Zaza Fahmeeda, accompanied by Atika Nurul Fatin on the piano also performed a song called Langit by Yuna that makes all the guests applauded and teary at the same time.

Then, the graduates were invited up on stage one by one to be given a unique token of appreciation from the family of MaSA UIUC, accompanied by the cheering of the other guests. The night continued with other exciting performances and followed by an inspiring speech by the senior representative Arjun Kumar – major in Civil Engineering – to his fellow graduates. Kak Syeda Fauzi was also given the microphone to represent the graduate student in UIUC. Her speech was filled with great personal advices from the experiences she gained on the campus since 2008.


Two awards ceremony were given out on that night for best-dressed male and female whom were selected by casts of vote from the attendees. The winners were the obvious Daisy, Kak Syeda Fauzi, and Gatsby, Aiman Shahabuddin! The last screening of a video wraps up the whole bittersweet memories of our graduating seniors in U of I. The videos were a reminder that every experiences they gained in UIUC have shaped them to be who they are today.

To end the night on a memorable note, a formal photo session were done with all of the graduating seniors and others too. It was an eventful night that would not happen without our seniors hard work to live up to their dream! Congratulations to the graduates class of 2016. Good luck in your future endeavour and make the world your canvas.

I love graduation nights. Although I have attended only one, I really enjoyed hanging out with all the school mates for one night together. Will seek inspiration from this one.
