It’s 2021. A new year always brings new hopes, new resolutions, the chance to start anew!
For us at Alumni Relations (AR), we are super excited about 2021 as this is the year we mark our Alumni Relations' 15th Anniversary. After a challenging and tumultuous 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic which disrupted not only our lives (and for many of us it also changed our outlook and priorities too), we are ready to welcome the new year amidst hope of a vaccine for all and life returning to more normalcy. With that, it will enable us to again meet and engage with alumni, although we envisage that there will still be considerable online engagements in the new normal.
The certainty about our alumni population is that we will always see an annual increase and in the last 14 years we have grown to a sizeable strength of 38,224 members. What warms the cockles of our heart (to borrow a now famous phrase) is that many in our pioneer core group of alumni volunteers are still active today. I would like to thank each and every one of them for their continued support and belief in us. Your partnership counts!
As we transit from UniSIM to SUSS, we have also expanded our repertoire of activities and events significantly to cater to varied needs and interests. 2021, being our Alumni Relations' 15th Anniversary will see even more exciting activities and trips down memory lane coming your way. For these activities to be vibrant and successful, we need your active contribution and participation. So look out for our event alerts, campaign launches and shout outs and join in the various festivities in the months ahead. Share your memories as we reminisce the good old days and create new ones this year as you continue your engagement with us. Make new alumni friends to expand your network.
Happy anniversary as we look forward to more AR-mazing moments with you!
Director, Office of Student and Alumni Relations
