Student Alumni Associates cultivate alumni relations
They are recognised for their effort in building bridges between students and alumni.

Students are the university’s future alumni and while on campus, they contribute tremendously in their own capacity towards the development of the Nanyang Alumni network.

Initiated by the NTU Alumni Affairs Office in 2007, the Student Alumni Associates programme recognises the existing students who have played a pivotal role towards the development and cultivation of alumni relations among the student and alumni networks.

At the appreciation lunch, 40 Student Alumni Associates were honoured for their contribution and spirit of volunteerism.

Thanking them in his speech was Guest-of-Honour Mr Chew Kheng Chuan, NTU’s Chief University Advancement Officer.

“We thank our Student Alumni Associates for your dedicated commitment and contribution, and we hope that through this platform, you will stay connected and develop strong ties with the University through your continual involvement in alumni-related activities,” said Mr Chew.

He added: “As a Student Alumni Associate, you play a very important role. You are our bridge between the student population and the alumni of NTU, promoting strong ties and relationship. By helping to foster pride and tradition, promoting and inspiring unity, you will help alumni keep alive the friendships, associations and interests they formed as students in NTU. At the same time, you will also benefit from an extensive network of alumni worldwide.”

During the presentation ceremony held on 9 April at Holiday Inn Orchard City Centre, the Student Alumni Associates were presented with a Certificate as well as a token of appreciation. This was followed by a buffet lunch, which allowed the student leaders an opportunity to network with fellow friends.
