9th Executive Committee President’s Message

Welcome to the official website for NUS Psychology Society! Are you one of our members? If not, we hope that you would join us soon! We gladly welcome all NUS students, regardless of their major, into our society.

NUS Psychology’s Society’s Annual General Meeting has concluded on 4th September 2014 and we are proud to introduce to you the 9th Executive Committee who will be serving you in this academic year of 2014/2015.

President: Sean Tan
Vice President: Lim Wee Ping
Honorary Treasurer: Ivana Chan
Honorary General Secretary: Natasya Aviana
Assistant Honorary General Secretary: Raymeo Kuah
Academic Director: Liew Liang Hong
External Relations Director: Khoo Yi Feng
Publicity Director: Chee Yin Shan
Welfare Director: Gan Wei Kang

Psychology Society is a student-led body that strives to promote the welfare of our members. We also hope to allow interested parties to better know the field of psychology. We organise a variety of events throughout the year to look after members’ academic and non-academic needs. We have Psychology Appreciation Week which includes welfare pack distribution and Wear-Your-Psych-Shirt Day! In addition there are also academic tours and talks available. This year we hope to bring the freshmen a revitalised Psychology-Camp so stay tuned! Apart from carrying on with established events, the 9th Executive Committee welcomes feedback and suggestions from members to adapt and streamline our existing events to better cater to our members’ needs.

NUS Psychology Society also intends serve as a bridge between Psychology majors, alumnus and the Psychology Department so as to foster a cohesive community amongst them. As such, we would hope to see all of you at our events, so that we can get to know each other better.

In this new academic year, we also strive to further engage both our current and senior members by offering more bonding opportunities through hosting more gatherings. Through this, we hope to allow all our members, be it those who are currently studying or those that have graduated, to interact with each other and share valuable experiences. In addition, we also hope that these gatherings would be platforms where the 9th executive committee and the members can get to better know each other. Look out for the gatherings during the holidays!

For those interested in planning for our activities, we would be recruiting sub-committees for Psychology Camp from December 2014 to February 2015. Members are also welcome to volunteer at our events or with organisations such as the National Kidney Foundation and the Institute of Mental Health. We hope that it will be a meaningful journey and experience for all of us!

Please continue to support us this new academic year. Let us know your interest in contributing or offer us your valuable feedback and suggestions by sending an email to nuspsyche@gmail.com. Alternatively you can approach any of the friendly committee members in school. We wish you all the best in this academic year!

Warm Regards,
Sean Tan
President
9th Executive Committee
