An annual signature Freshman Orientation event of the NUS Students’ Union since 1958, the Rag and Flag event encourages the NUS community to contribute towards improving the welfare of the needy and less privileged. It serves as an annual charity project to raise donations for the Community Chest, the fundraising and engagement arm of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS). The overall aim is to rally the NUS community to contribute to this charity-based endeavour, tangibly helping the needs of the underprivileged and community at large.
This year, look out for NUSSU Rag & Flag Day on 7 August 2021.
