On July 14 2015, NUS Psychology Department held a Graduation Celebration to celebrate our 2015 graduating cohort.
The celebration kicked off at 11:30am, as graduates and their guests mingled with staff members, while having their pictures taken at a photo wall, and enjoying refreshments. To see these photos, go to https://www.flickr.com/photos/psychnus/sets/72157655878347462/with/19702466042/.
The Head of Department Associate Professor Sim Tick Ngee gave a numbers-themed speech that looked to the past, present, and future. Some fun facts:
– Psychology was established at NUS in 1986
– The 2015 graduates form the 27th graduating cohort (bachelors), and 26th graduating cohort (bachelors with honours), respectively
– NUS Psychology will turn 30 in 2016 (next year!)
The speech ended with words of appreciation of the role played by the graduates’ family and loved ones in their journey at NUS, and words of encouragement for graduates to think about how they would like to make a positive impact on others.
Photo-taking and refreshments were then resumed, as staff members caught up with graduates to chat about their exciting plans ahead, and were introduced to their family and loved ones. Graduates also went home with instant photos that captured moments of this joyous occasion, as well as a soft toy of LiNUS (the NUS mascot) from the Office of Alumni Relations.
To all 2015 NUS Psychology graduates, we are proud of your accomplishments, and wish you the best in your future careers and endeavours!
