Renovated CEIBS Corona Student Lounge now open

Resonance, Recreation, Rejuvenation and Renovation top the agenda

Thursday 14th January, Shanghai.  The three Student Lounge committee leaders, Devon Nixon MBA2008 (Student Lounge Founder), Kunal Daga MBA2016 and Jeffrey Tchui MBA2017 stood laughing while sharing memories of CEIBS over a cold brew from the recently installed draft beer machine with compliments of ABinBev through efforts made by Aldenizio Santos Berra MBA2017 and Stella Sun MBA2017. This year’s committee led by Jeffrey Tchui believes that prestigious institutions such as CEIBS should have facilities to encourage the development of the Mind, Body and Spirit.  At CEIBS, “we already have the world-class learning spaces and a Library for the MIND, a multifunctional gymnasium and soccer pitch to help students develop their BODY, and now the next generation of student Lounge to further improve the CEIBS SPIRIT.”

Building from the momentum of massive improvements made by Eduardo Vianna, Kunal Daga and the MBA 2016 class, the committee developed and delivered a self-funded renovation plan in collaboration with ABinBEV, hosting the launch party of the ‘CEIBS Corona Student Lounge’ on the evening of Thursday 14th

Designed with 3Rs (Resonance, Recreation and Rejuvenation) in mind, students flocked to the renovated Lounge, with the open bar area, refurbished CEIBS pool table and foosball games proving particularly big hits amongst the student body.  Many saw the interior design of the lounge as the biggest improvement, now equipped with ambient lighting, digital signage, TV and projector screens and contemporary furniture.

“Build it and they will come, design it and they will stay. But we really could not have done it without all the efforts from all parties involved, the MBA office, Logistics, IT and Student Leadership.” –Jeff Tchui

Supported by the launch of the Lounge’s official WeChat App, the Committee foresees a busy schedule for the lounge with beer/wine tasting, club events, cinema evenings and game nights shows all on the cards for future events.
