Welcome Dinner


A welcome dinner was jointly organized for the students of University Scholar Programme (USP) and Tembusu pilot programmes at Prince Georges Park Residence. The students were greeted by the Masters of both colleges and spent the evening mingling with their peers from USP.

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.
