im just so exasperated, confused and disappointed with the decision to shut down Yale-NUS. apparently, plans to shut down YNC have been in the talks since June 2021 but the decision to abolish YNC was made public in Aug 2021 only after us freshmen have matriculated. surely, if I had known this, I wouldn't have turned down other selective programmes at other equally (if not more) prestigious universities. I feel betrayed and manipulated. what am I going to say to my future employees when they ask about my education history? no longer can I proudly declare I was an alumni of an emerging and radically different liberal arts SG college; instead I'll have to explain that my degree came from a defunct, experimental college and pray intensely that my future employees and colleagues don't brush it off as some shady degree mill
