Admissions Team

We've been described as "cool", "quirky" and "energetic", but we are really just a bunch of friendly people who can't stop talking about Yale-NUS and who love meeting prospective students and parents! As admissions officers, we spend half the year visiting high schools across Singapore and around the world, and the other half of the year poring over thousands of applications to choose the amazing people who will be part of the next class at Yale-NUS. We love it!

Admissions Fellows

Admissions Fellows are seniors who have been selected to interview short-listed applicants in the college's admissions process. Here are a few quotes from our seniors on why they joined to be a fellow:

"One of the reasons I chose Yale-NUS was that my interviewer cared about getting to know me as a person and helped me see how I could make the most of my college experience at Yale-NUS. I'd like to do the same for applicants who may join the next cohorts that will shape the future of our college." – Carmen Denia '17

"I look forward to meeting students from all over the world and being inspired by their ambitions and passions. For some of these students, it might just be the start of their Yale-NUS journey right there. That's pretty exciting." – Joan Ongchoco '17

"I am eager to get to know the applicants for who they are and to learn from their wide array of experiences and perspectives. I want to find out their personalities, visions, principles and values in life and their reasons for joining Yale-NUS, which also serves as a reminder of my reasons for joining this college." – Elson Ong '17

Felicia Tan '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: Early on in freshman year I found myself on a dining hall table having lunch and good conversation with four other classmates. In the midst of laughter someone exclaimed in realisation: “Yo, all five of us are from different continents!” Yea. Continents, not countries.

Majoring in Psychology
Elson Ong '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: The time when the entire school was housed in Residential College 4 before the campus was ready. Everyone was really close since the school was really small. The chances of bumping into someone was a lot higher and you were bound to find a familiar face in the lifts since  everything took place in a single building.

Elson Ong '17

Majoring in Urban Studies
Abdul Hamid Bin Roslan '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: Once I put up an art piece in response to an article that I felt mischaracterized how Yale-NUS students approached controversial issues. I was told later that students had appropriated the space and were discussing the issue of safe spaces, and constructive disagreement. I (hope I) caused a riot!

Abdul Hamid Bin Roslan '17

Majoring in Arts and Humanities
Adlin Zainal '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: I actually have a dish in the butteries named after me! The Adlin is a bowl of indomie (delicious instant noodles) with a burger patty, which is simple enough, but I was the first person to put the two together and I would order it so often that people started ordering it too, so in the end, they named it after me!

Adlin Zainal '17

Majoring in Psychology
Carmen Denia '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: I think some of my favourite memories will involve walking around the campus and UTown late at night. It’s a great way to think over things by yourself or spend time with a friend. Of course, having a snack at one of the butteries at the end only makes everything even better!

Carmen Denia '17

Majoring in Literature
Tsoi Sau Yee '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: In my first year we had a Halloween event and it was amazing! I was part of the acapella group that performed and we were doing a mashup of Thriller, and so we all painted our faces to be more zombie-like. Our friends came down to watch our performance and I was very touched by their support.

Tsoi Sau Yee '17

Majoring in Life Science
Althea Tan '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: Probably a tie between hanging out in the suite’s common area with my suitemates and getting together with friends to celebrate each other’s birthdays on campus.

Althea Tan '17

Majoring in Literature
Joan Danielle Ongchoco '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: When I was in my freshman year, my friend from Sweden surprised me on my birthday by learning and singing a Tagalog song. We talked about psychology research and philosophy over nice warm Sinigang. That was Yale-NUS right there in all its diversity, curiosity and sense of family.

Joan Danielle Ongchoco '17

Majoring in Philosophy, Politics & Economics
Nicholas Carverhill '17

Favorite Yale-NUS moment: My favourite moment at Yale-NUS has to be a Spring LAB. It was an exquisite trip to Burma that connected literature, politics, and geography all together through a wonderful journey. Nothing quite beats glancing at the past and observing its refractions into the present.
