"It’s fun to meet people from other colleges and the prizes sound fabulous. I am looking forward to seeing our peers taking part in it.”

The president of MSoc, Jing Sheng Moey, said: “We are happy to have the chance to work together with LyIT.

"It is such a meaningful activity to get students having fun in participating while being able to expand their own network, at the same time increase the creativity and problem-solving skills of students while playing the game.

“We hope to get more people and institutes involve in the future to raise cultural awareness and share the joy with other communities.

DkIT MSoc is an association established in 2020 by a group of Malaysian students studying in DkIT.

They have been aiming to act as a platform for students to bond and meet with each other and to enhance the culture exchange experience within Ireland.

During the covid pandemic, they are one of the most active societies in DkIT and they have been hosting several events to enhance engagement with students.
