Coming Home to Rollin’ Good Times

Organised by NUS Alumni Relations and co-hosted by NUS Law and the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, the annual homecoming took flight in a fun-filled hybrid format this year.

Alumni groups put together virtual performances including a rousing rendition of Ben E. King’s ‘Stand by Me’.
Held on 3 July, the celebration included a lineup of pre-recorded videos and programmes streamed live from the Bukit Timah Campus Auditorium. Alumni recorded a series of song-and-dance performances, as well as a poem recital and a flash mob that showcased creativity and talent.

Reminiscing about the good old days, alumni Ms Anna Leong (Business ’81), Associate Professor Lawrence Chia (Science ’69) and Mr Rohan Kamis (Accountancy ’75) led a nostalgic session of the NUS Senior Alumni Tea & Chat. A highlight of the day was when Professor Danny Quah, Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, and Professor Simon Chesterman, Dean of NUS Law, hosted an illuminating Interactive Dialogue that discussed the opportunities and threats posed by artificial intelligence (AI).
