The First NYPian to Visit Babson College

What’s a girl to do when she wants to start a food empire?

For Christabel Tan, the answer was simple - enrol in NYP’s Diploma in Food Science & Nutrition, and also learn as much about entrepreneurship as possible.

And what better way to learn about starting your own business than by attending an 8-day Course at the US’s No. 1 college for entrepreneurship?

So Christabel visited Babson College from 6-13 July for a National Youth Leadership Forum on Careers in Business & Innovation. Not only did she get an extraordinary lesson in entrepreneurship and a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but she also became the first student from NYP to attend this programme at the prestigious Babson College.

But her trip was almost not to be.

Shoot-O by SEG Club

On Saturday, August 2, 2014, from 9am to 4pm, SEG Club hosted Shoot-O, a ball game event for all SEG students.

The tagline of the event was “Ignite your Passion” and the objective of this event was to motivate students to excel in the games through teamwork, resilience and mental toughness. The event also helped students to relieve stress, enjoy their time with their friends, while encouraging them to be more active in sports.

Games played included basketball, captain’s ball and soccer. There were six teams participating in basketball, 14 teams in Captain’s Ball and 12 teams in the soccer matches. It was a very tough competition as there were so many teams to compete against.

NYP: A Home for Finley Ng

We were in the middle of doing our project when I asked her, “What do you think of NYP?” This simple question resulted in her sharing her thoughts about NYP.                

Invincible 2014: A Bonding Session for Social Work Students

The holidays are finally here after a whole semester of hard work, exams and projects! If you thought the semester was tough, wait till you see what we faced at the end of the semester.

On 3rd September 2014, the Social Work Associate Network for Students (SWANS) committee came together to execute Invincible 2014, a day of sports and games for Diploma in Social Sciences (Social Work) students. The event had the interests of the students in mind, and gave them an opportunity to build stronger bonds with one another across all levels. This is in line with SWANS’ mission, which is to create a big community amongst students from our course.
