Mr Vishnu Sundaresan

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Vishnu is a second-year undergraduate majoring in Computer Science. He was previously a member of the Tancho House Committee, and is excited to give back to Tancho as part of the Residential Team! He is actively involved in various college groups and is currently the Captain of the Table Tennis IG and a member of the Tembolly Dance IG exco. He is also a ModBook Contributor for the College's Education Working Group.

 

Vishnu loves to explore the beauty in complexity, be it when studying complex computing concepts or unravelling the latest Christopher Nolan movie plots. His interests are split evenly between food, sports, gaming, television and music. Whenever he's free, you can catch him either jamming to his precious radio, watching sports, or making a cup of chai for anyone willing to share it with him. Although he is usually quite calm, he becomes very enthusiastic whenever anyone asks him why he is a football or cricket fan (Don't ask him if you don't have at least an hour to spend listening!). His favourite shows are How I Met Your Mother and The Office, and he has watched them more times than he can remember (and will continue to re-watch them). He believes in stepping out of his comfort zone and is always up for new experiences!

 

Vishnu is a believer in the idea of listening instead of hearing and is willing to lend his ear (and his support) to any of his fellow residents who wish to talk about anything that they want to, at any time of the day.

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.
