If you have an idea that will help to bring fellow Singaporeans closer together, we will be happy to support. You can make it happen through the Overseas Singaporean Funding Programme (OSFP). We provide seed funding for ground-up initiatives that promote a sense of community and connection to home.

SQ507: Combined US Universities Pre-Departure Carnival

SQ507: Combined US Universities Pre-Departure Carnival

Transiting to life in the US can be an immensely intimidating experience, and since not all schools have the funds or time to organize their own pre-departure events, we've decided to organize a combined pre-departure event to allow incoming students to bond with students of other colleges and foster a more close-knit Singaporean student community. The carnival also provides a great opportunity for schools to connect with incoming students, and to forge relations with other schools in the region for future collaborative events. In addition to bonding, we will have childhood games like chapteh and airplane chess, to show our incoming students that we are still very much in touch with our cultural roots while in the States. Because the event is held at the sports hub, we will also have table tennis tables set up, and we intend to have an inter-school telematch over our national olympic silver medal-winning sport. High-school orientation games will also be played as a form of icebreaker to get our incoming students warmed up for the event and also excited to be as Singaporean as they can be when they begin their adventure in the States.

UCLSS Pre-Departure Talk 2015

The annual UCLSS Pre-Departure Talk is organised specifically for students who will be entering UCL in September. We will be delivering informative presentations to address their pre-departure concerns and to give them a better idea of what to expect when term begins this September. After the various informative presentations, we will also have a catered reception for juniors and seniors to interact within their faculty groups as well as orientation groups for camp, thereby promoting cohesion between our society members and making our freshers feel welcome and ready for their academic journey in the United Kingdom.
