NTU’s Malaysian alumni network and have fun at their annual dinner
Close to 190 alumni and guests attended the gathering which has now become an annual tradition. The event was jointly organised by the NTU Malaysian Students’ Association, NTU Association of Malaysian Chinese Independent School Alumni and NTU Alumni Affairs Office for the University’s Malaysian alumni who are residing in Singapore.
Today, the University is proud to call 12,490 Malaysians its alumni, of which 56% reside in Singapore.
In his speech, Guest-of-Honour Professor Er Meng Hwa, NTU’s Vice President for International Affairs, updated alumni on the University’s progress and latest developments. He also encouraged all alumni to stay connected to their alma mater and to support the University’s many initiatives.
“As NTU alumni, your relationship with your alma mater is a lifelong one – and I assure you that it is a relationship that will become even more rewarding as you partake more in the life of the University. I urge you to tap into NTU’s networks and resources by supporting the University’s many initiatives, and in particular, initiatives and activities by NTU’s Malaysian students – they will be most grateful to receive support and guidance from you, their alumni seniors,” said Prof Er.
Alumnus Ms Khor Hwai Lin (SCE/2008) who attended the dinner for the first time, said: “I decided to come for this event to get in touch with fellow Malaysians, and perhaps meet some of my friends whom I have lost contact with. I am glad I came as I was able to widen my network of friends, and at the same time learn more about the University’s developments and alumni initiatives.”
