Welcoming the University’s new alumni
A party at Zouk was held for the University’s latest batch of alumni

It was a fitting party for NTU’s Class of 2012 new graduates who were recently embraced into the Nanyang alumni family at Singapore’s famous nightspot, Zouk. Welcoming them into the big family was NTU President and Guest-of-Honour Professor Bertil Andersson.

In his welcome address to the new alumni, Prof Andersson thanked them for their support in the year’s graduation giving programme, and commended them for their record high participation rate of 82.08%. He shared with them NTU’s recent achievement in being ranked fourth in the world amongst the young universities, and told the alumni that they should not only be happy alumni, but proud ones also. 

With the push of a launch mechanism, Prof Andersson, together with four new alumni representatives kick-started the Welcome Class 2012 Alumni Party. With that, alumni, guests and management took to the dance floor, grooving to the beat. 

“This is a very interesting way of celebrating our graduation. I find it very special,” said Miss Yang Liu, a new alumnus from the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. A total of 1000 alumni, guests and staff attended the Welcome Class 2012 Alumni Party held on 4 August.
