Ms. Chloe Lim

Resident Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore

Chloe is a second-year undergraduate student majoring in Life Sciences. Her choice of major comes from her interest in human and animal biology.

As a person with a wide range of hobbies, Chloe loves that Tembusu has provided her with many opportunities to nurture her various interests, and to share it with fellow Tembusians.

In the first year of her Tembusu College stay, Chloe was actively involved in College activities as she wanted to pursue her passion in sports and arts. She was part of t-ART, the CSC Sports Subcommittee, and the ICG team for Netball, Captain’s Ball and Floorball.

In her free time, Chloe enjoys reading, binge-watching TV Series, ballet, and playing the piano/guitar (the list could really go on; she enjoys way too many things). If anyone has recommendations on good music, books or TV shows, feel free to let her know!

In her second year, Chloe is excited to take on new responsibilities in hopes of challenging herself and making a meaningful contribution to the college.

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.
