SMU CIRCLE - December 2018


Happy Holidays from Office of Alumni Relations!

2018 has been another exhilarating year for alumni activities. As we wind down for the year, we dedicate the month of December to celebrating families and loved ones. We catch up with the Lim brothers, Calvin, Collin, and Clement, who are all SMU alumni, and impressively, Presidents of SMU Sailing during their school days.

Check out the upcoming events and degree programmes offered in 2019, as well as the past gatherings of our alumni in China, Japan, and Myanmar. We wish all alumni a joyous holiday season, and a happy new year!

It is rare for three siblings to attend the same university - even rarer for all three to serve as President of the same CCA, SMU Sailing, during each of their school days! Read about the unique SMU experiences of brothers Calvin, Collin, and Clement, where they were surrounded not only by friends, but also family.
