Mr. Ryan Lim

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore
Ryan is a third year undergraduate student majoring in Psychology, and minoring in Film Studies. A firm believer in the importance of mental health, his interests also include watching films, doodling, and reading.
 
During his stay at Tembusu, Ryan has been a part of the Shan House Committee, Filmbusu Committee, as well as served as one of the heads on the tFreedom Committee. He also plays ultimate frisbee recreationally as a member of Tembusu’s frisbee team. At this point, he might say a thing or two about how he strives to be an all-rounded student who enjoys the multifaceted nature of college life… but he won’t.
 
Between his admittedly specific 25-minute power naps, you can catch him engrossed in a graphic novel, doodling away in a sketchbook, studying like the good boy he is, or keeping up to speed on all things Marvel and DC-related (although everyone knows Marvel is better)! Feel absolutely free to talk to him about anything under the sun; the more honest the topic the better.
 
In addition to maintaining good mental health, Ryan also believes that inclusiveness and tolerance are integral to a healthy college culture. He decided to become a resident assistant to further promote these values and help ensure that Tembusu remains a community that is warm and welcoming to all who join it.
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.
