Message from the College Chairs
Dear Class of 2017,
The First Class. The Pioneers. The RC4-ers. The ‘In Asia for the World’ Kids. Now we’re here! Our final semester *inhale/ exhale*. Amidst our pancake study breaks, our bouncy castle sessions and crazy all-nighters for our Capstone projects, we’ve been through so much as a class. Together, we helped build an all-new college, combining the best of East and West, three residential colleges each with their distinct identities, over 50 student organisations and many other college traditions to follow. We have left behind a legacy.
Today, as we embark on a new phase of life, the post-graduate one, we can still honour that connection through the Senior Class Gift campaign, Breaking Bubble! Our gift will impact our juniors and support financial aid – helping them achieve more and providing them with the same, if not better, opportunities that we were given. Ultimately, we want to support them in their Yale-NUS journey.
We have great incentives to give back! Every gift of at least $20 will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $100 per gift, doubling the impact that our gifts will have. Should 90% of our class support Breaking Bubble, a generous donor will also establish the Class of 2017 Award at Yale-NUS, which will recognise and honour a student from every graduating class who has contributed the most towards the College, starting with ours.
Let’s make this final semester ours, let’s get that first class spirit going and let’s keep that #SCGyalenus magic alive.
Your College Chairs,
Baoyun Chelsea Cheo
Chua Wan Ping
* Your gift will be counted towards #SCGyalenus if you are set to graduate in May 2017, or if you are a senior on track to graduate from any of our Concurrent Degree Programmes or the Double Degree Programme with Law in May 2018.
Tradition of Giving
Let’s keep the spirit of giving alive after this campaign by pledging to give back to Yale-NUS for the next 5 years! Giving back to our community – even after graduation – is an important part of sustaining and cherishing Yale-NUS as our home and community.

We are aiming for a 90% participation rate from the Class of 2017, because we know our power is in our bond and in our spirit. We need to reach this goal in order to unlock the 'Class of 2017 Award'.
