This year, the Communications and New Media Society was recognised for its efforts in enhancing the NUS experience of CNM majors at the university’s 9th Student Achievement Awards. Presented with the Recognition for Campus Vibrancy certificate, the award serves simultaneously as a reminder and reward for the CNM Society’s executive committee to continue to organise initiatives and projects that will benefit CNM majors.
The Office of Student Affairs had organised the Awards to give recognition to exceptional individual students or student groups who have made noteworthy contributions to NUS outside of their scholastic pursuits.
In AY2012/2013, CNM Society launched a marketing competition, Pitch It! 2013, together with the Bizad Club. The event was open to tertiary students from all polytechnics and universities in Singapore. CNM Soc also organised Adobe workshops with the objective of giving CNM majors an edge in by equipping them with basic design skills. Yet another popular initiative is the industry visits. The visits were organised with the intention of introducing CNM majors to possible job opportunities after graduation.
This year, the CNM Society is planning another range of exciting events. Coming up is Pitch It! 2014. The 2014 edition takes the form of a digital social media advertising competition, tweaked to give the CNM majors a chance to take what they have learnt in class to apply to a real-life scenario provided by our corporate partners.

Congratulations, CNM Soc!
