Ms Weng Le Tian Nikki

Residential Assistant Tembusu College National University of Singapore


Nikki is a fourth year Geography undergraduate student with a minor in Geographical Information Systems and Urban Studies. 

Tembusu has been a big part of Nikki's university journey and the last three years have been nothing but wonderful. From the opportunity to step out of her comfort zone in exploring new activities such as joining the Tancho House Committee and climbing (come for tClimb!) to making lifelong friends, Nikki is extremely grateful for the community here in Tembusu and wants to return the support she has received through the residential team. 

To Nikki, a few of Tembusu's top hits are the sunsets, 'studying' with friends in the lounge and making all her friends watch Red Velvet's latest comeback on the big screen (SR visualiser)! 

Nikki is always open to new friends, new adventures or even just a chat while enjoying the Tancho breeze, so feel free to hit her up any time!

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.
