Welcoming NTU’s newest alumni
​Night of great celebration at Zouk for graduates from the Class of 2015

Some 1,000 alumni and guests gathered at Zouk, one of Asia’s hottest nightspots, on 7 August to celebrate the graduation of the University’s Class of 2015 and to welcome them into the NTU alumni family. The Welcome Class of 2015 Alumni Party organised by the NTU Alumni Affairs Office has become a regular annual celebration since the inaugural party in 2007.

Guest-of-honour NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson congratulated the graduates on their new status of alumni of the University, and encouraged them to stay connected. A memorable highlight during his speech was when he sang a few lines from the song ‘I gotta feeling’ which received thunderous applause from the alumni and guests.

Prof Andersson then went on to officially launch the party together with four alumni representatives – Mr Muhammad Afiq bin Mohd Yusoff (HSS), Ms Jiang Lian Lian (SCE), Ms Chen Yiwen (NIE) and Mr Manivannan Mohan Prashanth (MAE).

The night also featured slick dance performances by students from NTU’s Cultural Activities Club’s Soul Funky and MJ Hip Hop groups, which led to the alumni and guests taking to the dance floor grooving to stylish dance music. When the club opened its doors to the public at 11pm, many stayed on to continue partying with friends.
