On 14th and 15th March 2009, NUS opened itself for its prospective students. Large number of students could be seen either with their friends or their parents walking around campus or attending the various talks or spending time at different booths or eating food and generally having a nice time. There were campus tours organised, wherein a bus would take the students around the important places in NUS such as SRC, UCC, University Hall, PGP, SoC, Biz School and Central Library. SRC was the happening place and almost every MPSH had something or the other going on, be it talks, Faculty booths, NUS activities or Hall booths.
In the MPSH, the Halls had set up their various booths along with the other NUS clubs. Eusoff, Kent Ridge, Temasek, Sheares, Raffles and King Edward’s VII were all aligned one after the other displaying all their major achievements in the past couple of years to entice students into joining their Hall.
KE had the proud banners of its three IHG Champions (Female Tennis, Softball and Squash) put up right behind its booth. There were a couple of souvenirs of the Rag day 08 and Hall Play decorated around the booth. The really impressive mini-football field piece (normally in display in the Lounge) was also there. The Trophies, Shields and Medals won by KE over the past couple of years were also on display. There was a notice board on which KEVIIANS had put up their views about the Hall.
But the centre of attraction was…
Our Wushu team also put up our performance. Apologies for not having photos of their performance, if you happen to have any, do let us know! Thanks :) For now, here’s a shot of them getting ready!
And of course, it’s a must to talk about ROCK FEST 2009!
That is what they call themselves.
They came, they performed, they blew our minds away and they laughed right through it all.
King Edward VII Hall’s band performed in EMCC’s inter-hall head banging session called Rock Fest on the very same Saturday, as a part of the NUS Arts Festival.
Raffles and Eusoff Hall had performed earlier, but they did not have half the fan following as KE had :D Most of the people from the Open House Booth flocked in to watch Turbulence perform and none of them left disappointed. One had grasping the free coke and the other being waved around in sync with the beat like in a concert; that was the general picture of the people present in the SRC Basketball Courts.
What do you get when you have around 6 guitarists, 3 drummers, 2 singers and a keyboardist?
Nope, you do not get a disaster and clash of egos. You get TURBULENCE!
GO KE BAND! :)
