OAC Guangzhou 2014 - story image final

“Hurray SIM GE!” was the cheer that rang throughout the Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Guangzhou at the SIM Global Education (GE) Overseas Alumni Chapter (OAC) event on 22 November 2014.

Close to 30 Chinese alumni, industry partners and staff gathered at this annual reunion where reminiscences and friendships were the order of the night besides a sumptuous eight-course banquet.

In his welcome remarks, Dr Timothy Chan (SIM GE Director of Academic division) shared his joy of returning to Guangzhou again to re-connect with old and new alumni. He updated everyone on the SIM 50th anniversary festivities as well as opening of new Blk C, Blk D and Starbucks cafe at Clementi campus that drew rapturous applause.

Among those at OAC Guangzhou was alumnae Guan Liujin, Class of 2014 SIM-Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. She took the initiative to invite two soon-to-be-minted alumni (who will receive their scrolls at the 2015 SIM-University of London graduation ceremony) to the event.

Liujin, who came last year as a final year student and attended this year finally as alumni, probably said it best, “I thoroughly enjoyed my networking with alumni and students last year. So I’m back this time with my friends, meet more alumni and catch exciting news of SIM GE!”

Truly exciting times ahead for SIM GE and our global alumni, hurray!
