Kamayan, which means “to eat with our hands” in Tagalog, is a cultural show hosted by District One every Fall semester. The show displays Filipino culture, often through traditional and modern dance. Kamayan serves to strengthen the everlasting bonds of the District One schools and the New England community.
Big/Little is BUFSA's matchup/mentorship program designed to facilitate bonding and growth between our members. Newer members to BUFSA are typically littles and paired with more experienced members within BUFSA. Within fams, the possibilities are endless! We support each other in a number of ways. Fams will often cook and eat together, work out together, travel, network, and much more.
BUFSA also hosts weekly events that encourage bonding between members:
- Fam Din: Every week, at various spots around and near campus. Locations are posted on our Instagram Stories and weekly newsletter.
- Intramural Sports: Depending on the time of the year, we participate in various sports including volleyball, softball, basketball, broomball and flag football.
- Dance Practice for Upcoming Shows (Traditional and Modern): Learn dances from Tinikling to hip hop and everything in between during the weekends. Everyone's invited! Practices are on weekends in various locations, posted on our Instagram Stories and weekly newsletter.
