On 9 July 2012, the Department of Psychology organized a special pre-Commencement Graduation Lunch for its graduating students. Directed by Stephen Lim with the support of Lee Li Neng, Lim Yonghao, and Exco members of the Psychology Student Society, this Event attracted around 200 guests, including graduands, their loved ones, student alumni, as well as Faculty members. An elaborate buffet-style lunch comprising of a live chef station was accompanied by special instant photography services which, Psychology Head A/P Sim Tick Ngee commented, “made the occasion much more meaningful as a commencement occasion”.
Here, we hear from several guests about their experiences of this Event:
“Just wanted to say thanks for the awesome psych graduation luncheon. It was great to see everyone again and the instant pic team hired was great. I think everyone loved it!”
Amanda Lim, Psychology Graduand 2012
“The pre-commencement lunch was great!”
Lee Rong Cheng, Psychology Graduand 2012
“On behalf of all graduating attendees and our families I would like to extend my appreciation for the Commencement Lunch event [which] thoroughly enriched our memories of Commencement day, and value-added to our graduation experience.
Without the Commencement Lunch, we would have been caught up in the frenzy of phototaking after the commencement ceremony, without adequate time to touch base with our professors and peers. Commencement day would have slipped past us in a blur before we have the opportunity to truly participate in it. The Lunch event afforded us the time to create wonderful memories for ourselves, connect with our peers, and introduce our families to the esteemed faculty. The photo printing service also deserves an honourable mention for allowing us to crystallize our friendships and memories in the form elegant cards.
Once again, on behalf of the graduating cohort of 2012 and our families, I would like to thank the Psychology Department of NUS FASS for organizing the Commencement Lunch and making the end of our undergraduate lives a splendid one. Kudos!”
Tan Chia Niap, Psychology Graduand 2012
“I have heard very positive feedback from friends who have graduated and could tell that everyone had enjoyed themselves at the lunch. The Dept has indeed put in a lot of effort for this special event and we are glad to be a part of it!”
Annabel Koh, President of Psychology Student Society
The Psychology Department wishes all its graduands a very successful future ahead!
