Fun night of good bonding and reunion for SIM GE Alumni and staff
“Good to see you again! Thank you for coming here!”
These phrases chorused throughout the evening as close to 30 Indian alumni greeted each other at the regal Taj Mahal Hotel Delhi. Held for very first time in India, SIM GE Alumni Relations team flew in despite the summer heatwave to host our Overseas Alumni Chapter (OAC) dinner in New Delhi. A handful of passionate alumni specially travelled from Chennai and Jaipur just to catch up with their alma mater and fellow alumni.
“We are here to re-connect with you, share with you updates on SIM, and to invite you to join in our 50th anniversary celebrations in Singapore!” said Ms Judy Wong, Director of Business and Marketing Relations as she appreciated the roomful of alumni and industry partners for keeping up our overseas SIM community.
Former Student Representative turned start-up activist Vikas Bysani (Class of 2012, RMIT University) was one of those who flew in from Chennai, recounted his memories of his exciting student life and volunteer work in Student Recruitment, “Thanks to the great staff who gave me the opportunities to enrich my student experience…and for making this event possible!”
“What an enjoyable reunion tonight meeting all my friends….just like good old times!” chimed Avantika Pandey (Class of 2013, University of Birmingham) as she was busy catching up non-stop with fellow alumni and GE staff who saw her through her programme.
An impromptu but heartwarming Skype link-up was also made for everyone to catch Vedant Shetty (Class of 2011, University of Birmingham) who could not attend due to a business trip but was instrumental in rallying all to attend OAC India. Perhaps what summed up an evening of heart-to-heart conversations and familial hugs was the finale family portrait where one message rang loud and clear – Proud to be an GE alumni!
