Scholars Programme Alumni Network Get Together 2019
The annual Scholars Programme Alumni Network (SPAN) Get-Together organised by the University Scholars Programme (USP) was held on 16 February. Set up to be a cozy affair, about 60 USP alumni, students, faculty and staff came together for an evening of memories and great company at the rooftop of the Education Resource Centre in University Town.
USP Director Associate Professor Kang Hway Chuan gave a welcome address and expressed his gratitude to the alumni for taking time out during the Lunar New Year season to reconnect with their alma mater. Alumni also learned about USP’s new initiatives to bring together alumni and current students. Apart from organising talks and events, USP has also recently started their LinkedIn page and group. The group aims to be an informal platform for students to connect with the alumni with similar interests, and for alumni to provide opportunities to students or fellow alumni.
“It’s so amazing to see old friends back in University Town, as nothing has changed. We crowded around Associate Professor Barbara Ryan, and a five-minute catch up became an hour-long discussion! How much I’ve missed all these...” said Ms Zhang Xintian (Arts and Social Sciences + USP ’15) Overall, it was a great evening of reminiscence, laughter and catching-up.
