The colour blue is the universal colour to represent the front-line workers, who tirelessly continue to fight the coronavirus locally and globally.
In the same vein, as we will continuously fight and journey forward in these unchartered times, we urge you to be a true blue, too.

- Learn a third or fourth language not offered at NTU
- Sharpen your storytelling skills
- Join our career webinars conducted by esteemed alumni
- Polish your networking skills by joining our soft skills career workshops
Understand and empathise.
The global pandemic made us all slow down. We came to realise that a decision as simple as staying at home could help protect vulnerable folk. Society also became kinder as people empathised and thought of others rather than just themselves, like raising funds for migrant workers or volunteering to tutor needy students. In fact, empathy is also an essential leadership skill. Learn to understand the feelings of others, see the situation from their perspective, and you will become a better leader.
Expect exciting challenges.
These unprecedented times have allowed many dreams and ideas to flourish. You can sign up for a case competition, hackathon, or an employer’s idea forum. You can even code a new app. In fact, we know many young people who turned their boredom into creativity and became bakers or started a food catering business. So, be open, keep on challenging yourselves, and you will become a more adaptable, resilient undergraduate.
