Welcome to 2016! It’s another exciting year ahead.

For those of us returning from exchange or an overseas competition, we know you’re already missing the crazy adventures, new friends, and all the other stories that are probably best shared over drinks.

For our graduating students, here’s to an awesome final semester at SMU. Time really flies. Before you know it, you’ll be throwing your mortar boards in the air. Always wanted to get involved and try something new? Now’s the best time to do it.

Here are three major events to check out in the new year. Ready, set, go!

Gravical 2016

Want to unlock your inner spiderman? Give bouldering or climbing a shot.

Organised by the SMU Climb Team, Gravical is one of Singapore’s top bouldering competitions, where climbers compete and climb without ropes and harnesses. It’s truly a test of one’s wits, strength and dexterity.

The Climb Team organised the very first Gravical in 2007, and the competition has been growing steadily since. In 2015, 700 climbers locally and from all around the world came together to climb and compete for the love of the sport.

This year in 2016, Gravical will be happening at Marina Bay Event Square, with a full panoramic view of the city in front of you as you climb. Also, the competition will be graced by two internationally-acclaimed route setters, so don’t miss all the exhilarating action!

University Student Life Awards (USLA) 2016

What’s university life without student life? Whether you’re in the sports or the arts, or championing a worthy cause, this is what makes your SMU experience one to remember!

This is a day where we celebrate and recognise the trail blazers, the standard bearers amongst us — the ones who are breaking new ground and making a difference in student life, in their own disciplines and passions.

Student Life isn’t just a student endeavour — it’s about bringing students, faculty, staff all together for an evening of celebration!
