NUS Commencement – Life Sciences graduates receive their scrolls!

Monday 15th July 2013 was the Life Sciences Commencement, a happy day!

Our Life Sciences grads were groovy – they took photos with their own cameras, shook hands with and hugged some academic staff and the NUS President enroute to receiving their scrolls, striking the “Live Longer and Prosper” Star Trek greeting, pushups on the railing to strike a bodybuilder pose, taking a photo of the audience, cheering their friends and whooping to the audience and the valedictorian for the Biodiversity Crew rendering a wonderful speech fort the cohort!

All the best for the journey ahead of them!

My apologies for the over-exposure of my face! But you can see how cheery I was despite wearing a tie. So send me your photos especially if you took lab photos. I lost track of them on Facebook.

Finally wearing a tie – once a year, can lah.
