Memorable reunion of friends
Classes of 1970 to 1975 alumni return to alma mater to catch up with fellow alumni and reminisce their student days on campus

Held at NTU’s Nanyang Auditorium Foyer on 5 July, the reunion event was attended by some 300 alumni and guests. Starting in the morning, the get-together saw alumni from the Classes of 1970 to 1975 returning to campus and catching up with fellow alumni.

The event started with a health forum session chaired by Mr Tay Boon Suat (1974/Commerce) which featured alumni speakers Mr Fong Cheng Ek (1970/Arts) and Mr Tan Hong Leng (1975/Arts). Mr Fong and Mr Tan, both of whom are Traditional Chinese Physicians, spoke on ‘Preventing dementia with Traditional Chinese Medicine’ and ‘Gastrointestinal health’ respectively. Alumni and guests were seen listening intently to their very informative presentations which provided important knowledge on how Traditional Chinese Medicine can be beneficial for good health and curing illnesses.
During the lunch following the forum, Guest-of-Honour Professor Er Meng Hwa, NTU’s Vice-President for International Affairs, welcomed the alumni and provided an update on NTU’s recent developments. He also thanked them for their continuous support and contribution.

Chairman of the Classes of 1970 to 1975 Alumni Reunion Organising Committee, Mr Liew Shin Liat (Science/1974) thanked all the committee members and alumni for their support and dedication.

This reunion celebration was made more significant as six alumni couples from these classes renewed their vows. The renewal of vows ceremony was presided by Director of Alumni Affairs, Mr Soon Min Yam, who is a licensed solemniser and alumnus from Class of 1975.

Throughout the lunch, alumni had an enjoyable time chatting with their friends and former lecturers. Many were seen snapping photographs together, which serve as memorable mementos for them. Alumni and guests were also entertained by performances by NTU students and alumni.
