Goodbye, 10th Executive Committee


*mic drop*
Okay, okay we’re kidding. We’ll pick it up. No littering, members!
The Annual General Meeting has just ended, and the new 11th Executive Committee has been revealed. Look forward to the next e-mail blast, where the 11th Exco will introduce themselves and their roles to you. Please do continue supporting Psychology Society and the 11th Exco in the following semesters.
As the 10th Executive Committee, this will be our last e-mail to you. ):
But of course, you guys wouldn’t want to read a long chunk of text of us saying goodbye right? So we’ll just get to the point and say: thank you so much for supporting us in the past year. Despite all the blood, sweat, and tears, we really enjoyed planning events and helping Psychology Society to grow further.
Without further ado, we bid you goodbye, as your 10th Executive Committee:
From L-R: Teng Tao Xuan Dorothy (Vice-President), Ong Wei Jie (Assistant Honorary General Secretary),
Ng Siew Zhen Jeslyn (Honorary General Secretary), Lee Jia Ying Trena (Director of Publicity),
Chan Tsin Damien (President), Ye Zhao’en (Director of Academics), Ong Shu Qing Julia (Honorary Treasurer)

Till we meet again,
10th Executive Committee,
NUS Psychology Society

Annual General Meeting 2016

Dear Psychology Society Members…
10th Executive Committee; 9th September; 8 more days to go; 7 exco members; 6 people we’ll miss; 5 official meetings; 4, 3, 2, 1; on to the 11th Executive Committee!
Time passes so fast doesn’t it? Thank you so much for your amazing support for all our events for AY2015/2016. We received so many sign-ups for the 11th Executive Committee that we were literally swamped with interviews for the past week!
So it’s time for us to pass on the baton to the new batch. But before that, you have to vote! And every vote counts, and goes towards the new 11th Executive Committee who will shape Psychology Society for AY2016/2017… so choose wisely! ;D
Hence, we would like to invite all our members to the last event of the 10th Executive Committee, the Annual General Meeting 2016! It’ll be held on 9th September, Friday, 6.30pm at LT14. We’ll be giving you updates on what we have done in our term, and what you can expect in the upcoming year. We will also be holding the annual Executive Committee elections to elect our new office bearers. All members who will be attending will be entitled to decide who to be selected for the upcoming committee.
And we know ya, we heard ya… there will be FOOD.
See you there! (:

Inspire.Psych 2016

Hi everyone!

We’re happy to announce the launch of a new initiative, called Inspire.Psych. This will be a series of talks similar to Ted Talks, but about Psychology topics that are not offered as part of the NUS curriculum!

This sem, we are offering two talks: How to Attract the Love of your Life by Kelvin Teng, and The Right of Language by Dr. Travellia. Do refer to their respective posters for the timings and locations of each talk. For those interested, please sign up at as there are limited slots. We will send you a confirmation email as well. More details about the talks are below.

How to Attract the Love of your Life:
You have studied, or are going to study, social psychology. Why do we like some people and not others? What is love and what makes people fall in love with each other? Those are a few questions you will probably explore in the course. In this talk, learn how to link lectures with life and answer this particular question “How do I attract the love of my life?”


The Right of Language:
We have known for a long time that the left hemisphere of the brain is involved in various language functions (most notably, in speech as well as comprehension). In this talk, I will go over some research findings that showed the right hemisphere’s roles in language. I would like to highlight the importance of having a balanced look at both of the hemispheres to better understand the relationship between language functionalities and the brain.


Arts Open 2016!

If you want to take part in a sports competition and make more friends in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences (FASS) at the same time, Arts Open 2016 may just be the event for you!

Arts Open is an inter-major sports events open only to the students and staff of FASS. It is an event that was revitalized in 2015 by the Sports Committee in FASS Club to foster stronger bonds between students of FASS. Last year, 12 teams each representing different majors in FASS took part in four different sports: street soccer, basketball, captain’s ball and dodgeball. Anyone with an inclination towards or a passion in sports is encouraged to sign up!

Attractive prizes, a chance to bring honour to your major and boasting rights are also all part of the appeal of the Arts Open!
