Nominations for 2019 are now open until 9th April, 12pm.
Students are recognized for distinct leadership roles and their dedication, commitment and leadership in serving their peers and campus life.
RCAs work to support a small group of first-year students and act as mentors, programme planners, and advisors. They are one of the first people to help acclimate new students to the college!
The Orientation Committee (O’Comm) and Orientation Group Leaders (OGLs) work closely with the Dean of Students Office to welcome incoming first-year students to the Yale-NUS community and make their orientation experience meaningful.
