My Two (and a half) Year Adventure In NYP

Venturing the School of Design's hallways with lab coats.
Itis funny how fast time flies. I've spent two and a half years in NYP but it feels like only yesterday was my first day in school. What an adventure it has been; the countless friends I've made, the numerous assignments and projects I've tackled , the friendly lecturers who have taught me a lot, and not forgetting the scrumptious food I've savoured at the school canteens. Feelings of nostalgia and distant memories bring me back to the times when I first received  the results of my course admission.

I remember it was around 6 in the morning on my way to work when I received the message regarding my posting to Diploma in Visual Communication in NYP. I was elated as it was one of my course choices.

Eyes Wide Open @ Microsoft Singapore

I had to chance to visit Microsoft Singapore and attend its Study Smarter seminar in January and it was certainly an eye opener. Touring one of the world’s largest technology companies certainly exposed me to a gamut of technologies. The seminar, held at the Microsoft Singapore headquarters at the NTUC Building on 16th of January, is part of a series designed to help tertiary students improve their studying and presentation skills. It was just as enlightening as the tour.

Fusion 14: An SIDM Graduation Show

Recently, I visited Fusion 14, an exhibition showcasing all the final year projects from Nanyang Polytechnic’s (NYP) School of Interactive and Digital Media (SIDM) students. It was held at Singapore Expo Hall 3 from the 27th to the 29th of March 2014.

There was  a wide range of interesting projects to be found at the exhibition, including animated videos, interactive displays and gaming booths. All the portfolios of the graduating students were also  found alongside their projects. I was definitely inspired by all the creative works.

NYP-ACCA Accounting Challenge 2014 – It All Adds Up

I am happy at Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP). We have a convenience store for snacks, a bookstore for stationery, a fine dining restaurant for connoisseurs, and a plethora of fitness facilities. In fact, this is only a bite of the pie. NYP offers numerous amenities and services, and will soon have more, once renovations are completed by the end of this year. Which student will not be satisfied with all of this?

Being from the Diploma of Accounting & Finance, it is only natural to want to share what I enjoy about being in NYP with my potential juniors. I was given that opportunity on March 27 2014, the day of NYP-ACCA Accounting Challenge. I was the student host for Yio Chu Kang Secondary School (YCKSS) students, and managed to take them all around the campus!
