Bagelfest Makeover

Campus community, please join us for our new and improved Welcome Back Program on Thursday, January 15, from 11-11:50 am in rooms 38, 39 & 40.

Thanks to your feedback, we have been working diligently to transform the quarterly Welcome Back Program (aka Bagelfest) into a more professionally inviting experience.

This new experience will provide you the opportunity to mingle with new and returning students and employees, interact with clubs, find out about campus events/programs and even win prizes.

The event will include lunch, and each quarter the menu will be different; we will have  options to accommodate individuals who are vegetarian and gluten-free.

Ashley Liew

Ashley Liew Trains in Kenya

During the holiday break, student runner Ashley Liew completed a three-week high-altitude training stint at the High Altitude Training Centre (HATC) in Iten, Kenya, known in running circles as the "Home of Champions."  He is training for the upcoming New Orleans Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on January 25, 2015, and is working to qualify to compete for the Singapore SEA Games in June. He met and trained with world-class athletes while soaking up the culture and mindset that makes Kenyans such successful runners.

In an interview with Asia One Sports, Liew says, "It's been a really empowering trip, seeing how passionate, single-minded and determined the Kenyans are about running, and how humble they remain despite their achievements. The conditions definitely play a part, but what makes them great is their mindset, and that is the biggest thing I will take away from here."
