Fiesta At The Ridge....., OLE !!
Once again, the National University of Singapore put on its gaiety and pompous best to welcome the graduates and students to a day of nostalgia, fun and interaction at the Fiesta ( 24 August 2002 ). The Faculty of Dentistry mobilized its staff members, students and graduates to join in this yearly extravaganza, with contributions to the exhibition, food and fun fairs and welcoming home its graduates. We did a splendid job in having more visitors to our booth, maybe due to the attraction of prizes for the "Guess the number of teeth " contest, our colourful balloons and attractive layout!! There were serious enquries from would-be students at the career talk that was conducted. Just as it was entertaining and informative for the many visitors, those of us who were there also had a great time, as we shared the values of bonding and alumni spirit , amongst ourselves , and with the rest of the university community!
