Mr Frederic Chow Rui Hui

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Frederic is a second-year undergraduate, currently pursuing a degree in Computer Science and is a motivated individual who has a huge passion for sports. As an active member in several Tembusu Interest Groups, Frederic hopes to contribute back to the college as a Residential Assistant!

Frederic is an active player and captain of the Tembusu Volleyball team. As a life-long and diehard fan of Chelsea Football Club, he finds joy in watching English Premier League football with his family and friends as means of relaxing during stressful periods during the semester and also bonding with others. To truly see his enthusiasm for football, one has to join him in his Tembusu football watch-alongs to follow his extreme rollercoaster of emotions in an intense game.

As a Residential Assistant, Frederic always strive to be approachable and allow everyone to feel welcomed to have a chat with him about various topics!

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.
