National University of Singapore, Singapore


A place where the buildings are a mish-mash of the old and the new, the many interesting nooks and corners that I’ve discovered over the four years I’ve been there has made it a place I’ve come to grow fond of.

I remember as a freshman on the first day of school. With a map in hand, I felt so ready to conquer. What soon had me confounded about the campus though, was its many shortcuts through the mish-mash of old and new buildings. While walking on the same plane, you could be on the 3rd floor, then ground level and while wondering where room 102 was, you suddenly realise you’re on the 2nd floor.

The campus being built on ridges was the cause for the confusing architecture. However, throughout the course of my four years there, this unique place was also the cause for constant discoveries of new paths and cozy corners, many of which holds fond memories for me.

If you get the chance to visit, go tread the smaller paths and take a peek behind the bend. You may find the unexpected.
