Tembusu College Open Day 2017


Wish to find out more about Tembusu College? Our college staff, Fellows, and Ambassadors will be happy to talk with you at our information booth located at the Education Resource Centre (ERC), right above Starbucks. You are highly encouraged to join us on our college tour between 9AM to 6PM, brought to you by our very own college students! During the tour, you will be able to find out more about college life, and check out our living areas (and hopefully, soon to be yours!), Learn Lobe and Dining Hall. Over at the Learn Lobe, you will get a chance to check out our themed rooms (Reading Room, The Abbey, The Atlas and the Games Room). Say hello to our Fellows and ask them a question or two if you are curious about our University Town College Programme (UTCP). So come on down to Tembusu College to find out more about us this Open Day!

We will also be having 2 talks at the Stephen Riady Centre (Level 1), Seminar Room 2 at 10am and 2pm.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
