SIDM Movie Night 2016

SIDM Movie Night is an annual affair for the alumni and current students of NYP’s School of Interactive and Digital Media (SIDM). This year’s event was held on 20th May 2016, at Shaw Theatres Lido. A total of 455 alumni from the Class of 2000 to 2016 attended the event!

I had the privilege of attending this year’s get-together with my fellow Write Stuff teammate, Jess Poh. The movie screened was X-men: Apocalypse. This event was a great opportunity for the alumni to catch up with their old friends and lecturers, as well as to do some networking with the current SIDM students.

The collection of the movie tickets, with complimentary popcorn and drinks, started at 8.30pm. The atmosphere was very relaxed as students and lecturers alike caught up with each other. There was also a palpable buzz of excitement in the air as the guests looked forward to the action packed movie ahead of them.

5 Things a Graduate will Miss about NYP

From left: Greg and myself

I have known Thng Geng Chen (more commonly known as Greg, Gregory or Fat Greg) for almost two years. I have played a lot of online games with him and I still do. Although he is leaving NYP just as I’m starting my first year here, he has given me a king’s fortune worth of insights on the day to day affairs of an SIT (School of Information Technology) student. Although he is not a star student in terms of his GPA, his stories have given me an unfiltered image of what polytechnic life holds for me.
