Close to 200 alumni, staff and faculty attended the 5th Year Reunion for the SMU Class of 2012 on 6th July 2017. Held at Angie’s Oyster Bar at Singapore Land Tower, undergraduate and postgraduate alumni from across various schools and programmes came together to celebrate this joyous milestone and reminisce about their campus days.
Ms Adeline Bek, Associate Director, Programmes and Partnerships from SMU Office of Alumni Relations gave an opening address to everyone at the event. She shared on the growing alumni community, the host of privileges and benefits for alumni, as well as the calendar of events that are specially organised for alumni. Alumni are important to SMU and Ms Bek encouraged all to continue to stay connected with each other and with the university. She invited them to return to campus to gather at their very own B3 alumni bistro, which is managed by the SMU Alumni Association (SMUAA).
Ms Bek also expressed the Office of Alumni Relations’ deep appreciation to the 15 alumni members of the Reunion’s Outreach Committee. She thanked them for their advice, assistance and efforts in bringing their peers back for the reunion. The committee members were Roger Koh, Brenda Loh, Eugene Wee, Gavin Chian, Kwek Hyen Yu, Ian Lim, Isaac Chua, Jalene Alyssa Seah, Ken Chang, Kenneth Oh, Allan Foo, Lester Chan, Rei Cheong, Samantha Kwan and Sophia Lo. The reunion would not have been successful without the strong support of the alumni outreach committee.
Ms Jeanie Lee, Vice President of Marketing and Communications from the SMUAA EXCO, also welcomed everyone to the event. She shared about the SMUAA and membership benefits, and also encouraged alumni to step forward to volunteer with the SMUAA or serve as leaders in alumni groups.
There was much excitement and a mixture of emotions throughout the evening as alumni chatted over drinks and delectable food platters. Many of them took photos with each other and with faculty and staff against the beautiful night view of Marina Bay. Our very own Office of Alumni Relations’ emcee, Mr Jason Tan, roused the attendees further to an emotional end of the event by gathering everyone for a big group photo to commemorate this special 5th Year celebration of their reunion since graduation.
