A recent viral post from a elder brother from NUS. Describing how his younger brother was harress by the public for wearing the NUS shirt.
“my kid brother is about to start his second year at NUS. i wasnt pleased to hear that some kids in NUS attire have been verbally harassed by some members of the public. so much so that a message went out for students to take note, and not wear NUS attire if they arent comfortable.”
The uproar is believed to be caused by the sexual orientated orientation, that caused the public to hate them
“some of the (dis)orientation activities were stupid and wrong. and if I read Min OYK’s post correctly, he said to “foreswear” the bad bits, not the whole orientation week. a lot of effort and students’ own money has gone into planning and prepping the activities. a blanket ban also cuts out planned games like “the price is right” – where a freshie can win a mini dorm fridge for… guessing its price (别想歪). so some games should be ok, some aren’t.”
