Peer Student Supporters

If you want a peer to talk to, a patient listening ear or perhaps somebody who can guide you in the right direction, you may want to be in touch with our dedicated Peer Student Supporters. They are here to journey with you. Peer Student Supporters are available everyday at the PitStop@YIH, 12:00pm - 6:00pm, Mon - Fri.

PitStop@YIH

Drop by at the PitStop@YIH for a break. Rest, be healed and recharged. PitStop@YIH offers lots of space to chill-out, rest, talk and get engaged in many therapeutic art activities. There is even a games room to help you de-stress. In addition, this accessible space offers the latest assistive technologies to support our students with special needs. We are at Yusof Ishak House, Level 1, just behind 7Eleven.

Faculty Student Support Managers

Salso partners with Faculty Student Support Managers, SSM. Demanding academic schedules and personal commitments can always leave a student overwhelmed. As a student, you may not know of the right avenues to approach for resources. Within each faculty's student life division, you have direct access to a designated Student Support Manager who can support, guide and connects you to the available resources on campus.

Dear S-Cubie: E-learning blues, how to shake it off?
"With the current COVID-19 protocol, I’ve been doing my studies through the e-learning platforms. I find it difficult to stay disciplined completing the webcasted lectures on time. Furthermore, some topics were too difficult for me to follow and I feel lost. I’m feeling more anxious and stressed by the day as my backlog is piling up. What shall I do?"

Dear S-Cubie: Group work is so painful, how to make it through?
"I’m trying my best to do well for my group project, but my group-mates don’t seem to have the same idea. How can I get my group-mates to contribute their fair share and put in their best effort?"

Get advice here.
