Recognising our Student-Alumni Associates
Their efforts in cultivating alumni relations are applauded at an appreciation dinner

The NTU Alumni Affairs Office organised an appreciation dinner to thank and recognise the work of the Student-Alumni Associates (SAAs). The SAA programme recognises existing students who have played a pivotal role towards the development and cultivation of alumni relations among the student and alumni networks.

Forty-seven new SAAs were appointed during the appreciation dinner, bringing the total to 406.

SAAs generously give their time in helping to strengthen the relationship between NTU alumni and the University. By volunteering at various alumni activities for example, SAAs work hard to ensure that alumni have a memorable experience.

Guest-Of-Honour Associate Professor Kwok Kian Woon, Associate Provost for Student Life, highlighted that by assisting in various activities, the students are able to gain useful knowledge and develop skills which are not obtained through lectures and tutorials. He was pleased to note that many student leaders come forward to volunteer, playing an important role in alumni relations.

During the presentation ceremony held during the dinner on 28 March, the SAAs received a certificate and token of appreciation from Prof Kwok. This was followed by a buffet dinner, which allowed the student leaders an opportunity to network with fellow friends.

One of the newly appointed SAAs, Miss Yeo Tan Cheng, Vice-President of NTU Cultural Activities Club, said: “It is a meaningful position as I am given the opportunity to play a part in connecting our alumni with their alma mater. It is indeed gratifying to see our alumni give back to the University for the benefit of the students.”
