NTU Singapore celebrates Alumni Homecoming 2022

More than 1,200 NTU Singapore alumni and their families visited the campus on Saturday, 15 October for the long-awaited NTU Alumni Homecoming. 

Alumni took part in various experiential workshops and exhibition booths around campus, including learning about different satellites NTU has launched and a tour of the laboratories to see the latest made-in-NTU innovations.

They also attended various talks and alumni networking events organised by the Schools and Alumni Associations, with topics ranging from entrepreneurship to parenting and education.

For the first time, Homecoming was held outdoors at the rejuvenated Yunnan Garden, where alumni and their families tried their hand at various carnival games and treated themselves to refreshments offered at F&B booths. Open-top bus tours let alumni take in the university campus in comfort while being brought to various award-winning iconic buildings. This was the largest alumni event since the pandemic. 

NTU President Professor Subra Suresh told alumni gathered at NTU’s Yunnan Garden their active volunteering and giving all these years have created a strong alumni network that has solidified NTU’s reputation as an educational institution with a very warm heart.  

Professor Suresh said: “Throughout the year, I encourage you to stay connected. We have chosen VeNTUre as this year’s Homecoming theme, to acknowledge the achievements of the OneNTU community.”

He also paid tribute to the late philanthropist Mr Tan Lark Sye and the Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan, which donated the land for the building of the campus. In 2019, Singapore’s bicentennial year, NTU renamed the College of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (CoHASS) building the “Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan Building” while the road adjacent to Chinese Heritage Centre was named “Tan Lark Sye Walk”, added Prof Suresh.
