Dear Graduate,

Years of studying hard are now coming to an end. That calls for a celebration!

Only graduates are allowed to register for this physical event on campus. Due to applicable COVID-19 restrictions, limited seats will be available. The seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
