Can You Hack It?: Yale-NUS College gave a strong show at this year’s <hackfestsg/> which was held at The Hangar by NUS Enterprise from Sept. 9 to 11. Congrats to Andrew Wooten ’19 and Sveta Kekutiia ’19 for their second place win, and to Jasmine Tan ’19 and her group for coming in first!
Can you handle it?: On Tuesday Sept. 13, RC^3 held Free Food: XTREME, an inter-RC food-eating competition that tested spicy food tolerance and stomach capacity. Cendana College was the winner, as expected.
Role With the Punches: How is the role of the media adapting to stay relevant in modern times? On Wednesday Sept. 14, veteran journalists from Channel NewsAsia shared their experiences with Yale-NUS students.
Game Over: This year’s NUS IFG 2016 is officially coming to an end. The IFG 2016 Champions will be crowned on Sept. 16 at 6:30pm. Also included is an 11-course buffet spread, a photo booth and performances by NUS Resonance and Viva LatiNUS. Yale-NUS was place in the top four in International Chess, Road Relay, Women’s and Men’s Basketball, and Tennis.
Break the Cycle: Starting Saturday, Sept. 17 to 25, students will enjoy a welcome recess week. Hopefully the tradition of the whole school falling sick during the break doesn’t continue this semester. Take your vitamin C, folks. The Octant will also be taking a two-week break during this time.
