May to August

RAG (12 August) - Receive and Give is one of the biggest Freshmen Orientation Events throughout the summer (June to August). It is held by NUSSU, providing a stage to showcase the creativity and talent of students from individual faculties. This is to show our appreciation to our sponsors and the public who have donated generously to during Flag Day (8 August).

SoC RAG family consist of freshmen to alumni who come together as one RAGGER, forming strong friendships and unforgettable experiences. #YORO #YouOnlyRagOnce - In your freshmen year! So what are you waiting for? Be a part of our SoC RAG family today!

RAG is an amazing opportunity to try something different, to learn something new. You can learn new moves with dance, or let your creativity run free with float and costumes. You don’t even have to have prior experience, just come down and you’ll be taught everything you need to know.

What your seniors have to say about RAG!

RAG is a great platform to meet your future batchmates and seniors from School of Computing. I signed up for RAG dance as I have some prior dance background. At the start of my RAG journey, I thought that RAG would be all work and very little fun. However, as time goes by, I met many amazing, genuine, and kind people which made RAG so much more meaningful. After RAG ended, many of my friends continued their dance journey by joining CCAs in NUS. I am joining RAG again this year as the dance head in hopes to build the culture that the seniors have passed down from my freshmen year. Also, I hope to inculcate dance fundamentals to the incoming freshmen and they can pick up new skills. See you during RAG!

RAG was indeed one of the most fun and enjoyable experience I had during the entire course of my orientation in SOC. I went into RAG as a dancer with no prior experience in dancing at all. However, under patient guidance and teachings from the seniors, they helped me build my confidence and skills in dancing such that I was confident enough on the day of the performance. Through RAG I have picked up new skills and made many friends, most of my friends in SOC are from RAG. In my opinion, there is nothing to lost and all to gain from joining RAG.

Daniel Tan, Year 1 Computer Science Student

RAG was definitely an enjoyable and unforgettable experience even though I only took part in RAG in the last 2 weeks before the performance. It was a short 2 weeks but I forged many friendships and witnessed the dedication of the seniors which inspired me to join rag again this year as a committee member because I want to let the freshmen enjoy themselves during rag like I did.

This will be my 3rd year contributing to SoC RAG and I have no #Ragrets spending my university summers doing RAG. I have seen many different batches of freshmen coming together to build this unforgettable experience and making friends that last throughout their university years. My greatest appreciation to the Freshmen who have no prior experience in performing arts or float-making yet deciding to join SoC RAG to learn something new anyway. I feel that SoC RAG is very unique as we focus more on family bonding as one faculty. Not forgetting the work hard play hard spirit #GoForGoal.
