Singaporean Alumni 

SingaporeAlumniDinnerOn Friday 16 March, thirteen alumni joined Helen Lytras, Royal Holloway International Officer, for dinner and drinks at the Seafood International Market & Restaurant in Singapore.

Many of the guests had not attended an alumni event previously, so it was a good occasion for the group to get together and talk about ways they can take the Singapore Chapter forward.

Helen delivered a short update about College life, including information about the latest scholarships and the prospect of hosting the Olympic rowers in July 2012.
