    Hall allo updates

    Hey guys,

    updates on hall application...

    For those who did not get into Sheares Hall for whatever reason, as the system of waiting list is not confirmed yet by OSA, you should

    -reject your current offer if you WANT to stay only at Sheares Hall and is ok with ending up staying at home. (not recommended for international students)

    -accept your current offer if you need a residences NO MATTER WHAT.

    (As advised by Andy)
    After the waiting list system is finalised by OSA,(which might be a few days after 3rd April) there will be another window opened for you to reject your current offer. By then, for those who have accepted earlier on, you will decide whether you want to risk your chance of having a place to stay by rejecting your "accepted" offer and enter the waiting list to come into Sheares hall, or for the safe side, accept and stay for the offered place you are given(which means you will never have the chance to come back Sheares unless via appeal).

    For those that did not actually applied for pgp or rvr but eventually got it, its because OSA has this new rule that if you have enough points to stay in both residences (cutoff point for pgp is 34)but not SHeares hall, they will allocate you there as they see that you NEED a place to stay(affecting people with points that ranges from 34 to 45.5). So you will have to accept and reject accordingly.

    Athough the mentioned cutoff point this year for both local and international students is 45.5, some people might not be able to get in even though they have more than 45.5. Its because of the quota for international students and local students. For Sheares, international student quota will be 15% while local student quota will be 35%(the rest kept for freshies/sep/noc). Therefore, if the quota for international student is filled with lowest point as 47, and local student have one vacacy left, a local student with 46 points will get in instead of an international student who get 46.5. Vice versa applies.

    For SEP/NOC students, you will apply at another new window which will open around 1st to 14th June. NOC students will be using points from the previous year while SEP students can choose to use points that you have earned in the one sem you are around this year or whole of last year (of cox use the higher one la!)

    Cases of appeal due to OSA technical errors, forget to appeal, bla bla bla, I presume that you have already informed your level reps. I will be submitting those names and reasons to Andy to appeal to OSA. However, I highly recommend that you go ahead and appeal yourself too after 3rd April as this will increase your chances further. Appeal can be via email or walk in.

    Cases of master's list, level reps have also informed me (so if you havent inform your level reps pls hurry). I will be submitting your names and my recommendation letter and will rank you guys based on how active you are in block activities. To increase your chances of getting into the Master's list, you can do the following:
    -Get your relevant chairpersons/ Culture ICs/ Captains to write reccomendation letter for you and submit to the relevent jcrc directors.
    -Mentioned to the relevant chairperson that you are willing to pick up the role of chairperson/captains/Cultural ICs/JCRC for the next work year.
    -Ask for those recommendation letters to be written as good as possible.
    -Be a friend of Master.
    -Buy me breakfast so that I will rank you higher

    Master's list will be confirmed this week. So hurry.

    Thats all I have to say, any problem come and find me. I'll try my best to find you a solution:)

    Beauties and the Beasts

    And so it came to pass,
    that the beauties were once again found in Block A.







    Unfortunately, the beasts were also found in this quaint little block. I think the point has been belaboured enough, so well.






    But despite the beasts, the happy residents of Block A still lived happily ever after.

    Hall Application

    To those that got into Sheares, congrats!

    To those that did not, if you placed Sheares as your first choice but missed by a few points, and got other halls/residences instead, please DO NOT REJECT OR ACCEPT FIRST! (This is only for those who still wish to try to get back into Sheares Hall.) I'm trying to help you how high are your chances first and by rejecting your choices, you will lower your chances as stated by some OSA rules. Pls give jcrc some time as they clarify certain issues with OSA and I'll update you all again.

    For those who have rejected alr because of this last min message, I have highlighted to jcrc alr. I will update you guys again.

    (Do not blame me for the last minute notice. I got all this info from jcrc only at the last min before I could post this up)

    p.s in the meantime, please check out our blog every now and then for annoucements and updates.Thanx

    Rules for room allocaton 08/09

    Block A Room Allocation Rules 08/09

    1. Block Head will get to choose first followed by Vice Block head.

    2. Graduating Seniors will get to choose next. Graduating Seniors are defined as those who have 3 years of contribution to hall. (For those graduating in year 3, it will be 2 years of contribution, but please be honest about this)
    Those who have gone on NOC will not be considered Graduating Seniors and will choose their rooms together with those in point (4), using their points from their previous year in hall.

    3. JCRC members will choose next

    4. The rest of the Acers will choose by writing their names on the floor plans which will be put up when the finalized points are released. If there is any conflict, the one with the higher points will get the room.

    5. There is a quota of 50% seniors per wing, excluding level 6. This means that there can only be a maximum of 4 seniors in the short wing and 7 seniors in the long wing.
    For level 6, the quota is a total of 8 people in short wing and long wing altogether, with minimum 2 seniors in the short wing and maximum 6 seniors on the rooftop.

    6. Those on the waiting list/Master’s list cannot choose their rooms at this point as their places in hall have not been confirmed.

    7. Committee Chairpersons, Sports Captains and Cultural ICs are entitled 5 bonus points. Points can only be used solely for room allo. If you have more than one of such positions, you will be awarded multiples of 5 points. E.g. If you are both SL chair and Tennis male Captain, you will be awarded 10 bonus points :P

    If you have any comments/questions/objections, please feel free to talk to Sharon (A318, 91914845, sharonchenhuimin@gmail.com) or Yonglin (A422, 98570825, yonglin@nus.edu.sg )



    Q&A

    Q: Why are there new rules in defining graduating seniors?

    A: Graduating seniors are people whom Block A respects as they have our culture deeply rooted into them. We value the title of graduating seniors and do not wish that it will be misused. Therefore, we do not want this title to be used on any seniors for more than one time.


    Q: Why is it that SEP students are entitled graduating seniors but not NOC students?

    A: To prevent misuse of the title, we will follow the general cases of a SEP students and a NOC students as stated by NUS. Generally, SEP students will not have their date of graduation affected but NOC students will have to extend for one or two semester from their original date of graduation. Therefore, in order to be coherent to the point I mentioned in the previous answer: [this title should never be used for more than one time], we will follow the general cases stated by NUS.


    Q: Are we entitled to the privilege that we have earned last year but not used before? (I.e. JCRC, Block heads, captains)?

    A: Yes. If the privilege was not used during the previous round of room allo, you can use it during this round.


    Q: Are you expecting a max of 22 girls and 30 guys staying next year?

    A: From history, only 50% of the seniors can stay. We will have to plan according to what we know. Nice calculation Maths major student :p


    Q: Why is it that level 6 has a different quota as compared to other levels?

    A: Level 6 rooms have higher property value due to air flow and sceneries so more seniors than juniors should be entitled with the rooms. However, there is still a 6:2 ratio so as to make sure that juniors are still accompanied by seniors next year.



    *All rules stated will only be applied for this year's room allo. Next year's room allo will solely be based on the set of rules set by the next block head.

    Terpsichore 2009 - Touch

    Terpsichore is NUS Dance Synergy's annual concert series, and was started by the group in 2005 as a pioneer platform for the concert showcase of student composition and choreographic works.

    This year's concert explores the concept of the human touch - of our need to establish physical, emotional, or intellectual contact with one another - and the origins and consequences of this innate force.

    In this display of innovative and challenging new pieces that are strongly grounded in choreographic concepts and ideas, NUS Dance Synergy once again challenges its members to seek and explore new avenues of expression through movement.

    Note

    To the well-intentioned but still anonymous author of the previous blog post,

    As the moderators of this blog, the block commers have stated before that all posts that are posted under acersunite.gmail.com should be written under an official name. The same rule holds for all posts; whether it is regarding gossip or not. We are not making any assumptions. You might have simply forgotten. So, you have 24 hours to give yourself credit for your blog post, or we will unpublish it.

I think you have been pranked enough for the past few days. :) We genuinely wish that you will enjoy this Prank Week. :) Remember the RULES!

    Hey guys! VC will be having an event on the 14th of March (Saturday) from 8am - 12pm. We will be going to Northlight School to have a short get-to-know-you session with the students there and then bring them to the National Museum for an excursion/activity. Northlight is a school for kids who have failed the PSLE at least twice. They are taught vocational skills and the top students go on to ITE. It is really quite an amazing school, do check out their website and this blog entry from another volunteer. The event on the 14th can be seen as a platform for mentorship if any of you are interested or feel especially bonded to the student you get that day :) Please do think about it and tell me if you're interested to go!

    Help rag!

    Hey guys,

    this is out to the graduating seniors. We need your help! Prudential is holding a career talk this coming Wednesday at 830pm at our mpsh and requires graduating seniors to attend. e.g yr 4s for engineering and yr3 and 4s for arts and so on. They are looking out for you guys to join their company after graduation(which means specialise degrees such as medicine are not favourable). Apart from the talk, they hope to get contacts from you.

    I sincerely hope those that could help please help as this will raise quite a sum for our rag. WE HAVE A QUOTA TO FULFIL! As the economy is down, every cent counts! In return, you might even have the chance to work for the big company, Prudential!
