5 Awesome reasons to choose Nanyang Polytechnic

The GCE ‘N’ and ‘O’ level results will be released soon, and whichever polytechnic you choose, the choice is in YOUR hands – yes, you!

To our incoming freshmen of 2017, this is my take on why you should choose Nanyang Polytechnic.

1.Convenient Location!

Let me begin with the most well-known fact: NYP is just a few minutes’ walk away from Yio Chu Kang MRT Station.  No feeder bus services from an MRT station! Also it is just a few stations away from town, what more could you ask for?

You might wonder why the location matters. Well, think about the travelling time every morning! Imagine a situation where the only thing harder than school is getting to school (we don’t want that, do we?).

2. A straight pathway to all areas!

There are no elaborate structures, nor multiple annex buildings at NYP. Everything is interconnected. So it is very unlikely for you to get lost in NYP. Why?

The campus is structured around two horizontal corridors parallel to each other, no matter where your destination is, you only have to walk straight. NOT up the hill, NOT across the carpark, and NOT around a building. You don’t even have to step outside the building. Just follow the corridor and you’ll get there.

In just a couple of days, you’ll be navigating around school like a pro!

3. Free Karaoke!

NYP is the ONLY polytechnic to have FREE karaoke services for all students. You read right. It’s free. Just head online to book a slot and you can sing your heart away for two whole hours.

The three karaoke rooms are located at what we call “T-Junction” (Block T), a facility built specially for students. Here, you can also hang out with mates and enjoy other leisure facilities like gaming consoles, pool tables, foosball tables, jamming studios and a cafe.

4. Sky Gardens

For those inclined towards serenity and nature, you can relax at the aesthetically pleasing roof gardens at Block P and S. No, not just any old roof garden, but NYP’s famous sky gardens that clinched an Excellence Award in the Skyrise Greenery Awards 2015 by the National Parks Board. They feel like something right out of fairy tale. Do pop by and look around when you are here for our Open House!

5. Dance Dance Revolution

Ok, I’m not talking about the game, but it’s REALLY cool that NYP has mirrored walkways in each block. Each time I walk past one, I would see a few dancers practising their dance moves. Or, people doing OOTDs. With a quite a number of popular dance CCAs in NYP, our dance culture is pretty evident and strong. If you happen to appreciate or enjoy dancing, you’ll find these mirrored walkways specially built for dancers very convenient. Best of all, they are free and available 24/7.

With all that said, good luck for your examinations and we hope to see you here at NYP!
