Big welcome for NTU’s newest alumni
Night of great revelry at Zouk for graduates from the Class of 2013

The Welcome Class 2013 Alumni Party held at Zouk on 3 August attracted more than 1000 alumni, guests and staff who gathered to welcome the University’s newest graduates as alumni.

NTU President Professor Bertil Andersson, who was Guest-of-Honour at the event, congratulated the new alumni and even sang parts of the song ‘Hotel California’ – a popular 70s song by ‘The Eagles’. He made special mention of the famous line, “You can check out any time you like, but you can never leave.

“That’s the saying, when you are an NTU graduate, you can never leave,” quipped Prof Andersson. He then proceeded to launch the party together with four alumni representatives from the Class of 2013, and even led the dance on stage.

The night also featured dance performances by students from NTU’s Cultural Activities Club which led to the alumni and guests taking to the dance floor, grooving to the beat.

Mr Daniyal Haider Sangil from Pakistan who graduated from the School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering enjoyed the welcome party tremendously. “When the party picked up momentum, it became one of the best I had ever attended. It was such a delight watching Prof Andersson dancing on stage, which urged all of us to party like never before,” he said.
