With the goal of building meaningful ties between students, staff and deanery members, as well as alumni, FASS’s External Relations and Student Life (ERSL) division recently invented the FASS Ensemble, FASS Joggers, and the FASS Care and Connect Series.
FASS Ensemble made its debut appearance at the FASS Student Leadership Awards Ceremony on 29 August 2015. Dr. Lam Lap (Associate Professor of Chinese Studies; violinist), Miss Jasmine Lee (Economics undergraduate student; violist), and Miss Wang Yushi (Psychology undergraduate student; pianist) performed a Trio titled Variations No. 4 by N. Baklanova, while Mr. Huang Junjie (Alumnus) and Dr. Stephen Lim (Assistant Dean of ERSL and Founder) performed a four-hands piano work titled Spanish Dances Op. 12 No. 5 (Bolero) by M. Moszkowski.
FASS Joggers – Fasster Than You Imagine, led by its core team comprising of Dr. Stephen Lim (Assistant Dean of ERSL and Founder), Dr. Donna Brunero (Senior Lecturer of History), Mr. Hong Li Wee (Geography Undergraduate Student), Mr. Seah Eng Chye (Economics Alumnus), and Ms. Heng Yu Tse (Psychology Alumnus), embarked on their first pilot jog of 4.25 km around campus on 31 August 2015.
The first FASS Care and Connect session was held on 16 September 2015, during which Dr. Stephen Lim (Assistant Dean of ERSL and Founder), Dr. Shirlena Huang (Vice Dean of Graduate Studies and Associate Professor of Geography), Mr. Chu Yiu Tak (Psychology Alumnus and currently Captain of SCDF), FASS administration leaders, and students from nine different Departments discussed “Life After Graduation” over tea.
We look forward to more of such excellent, exciting ventures by the ERSL division.
