ACT (Test) will be on April 8, 2017. The NIS calendar says Sunday, April 2, 2017 – this is incorrect. If you signed up for the ACT, the test will be Saturday, April 8, 2017.
As of Monday, March 27 and through the April break, we will be piloting a new digital sign-in/-out approach with Faculty to access the 3rd Floor Fitness Center and/or Pool. In the long term, we hope this will replace the current paper and pen method. All other NIS Community members (including non-faculty and students) are welcome to participate in the trial, though there will be one additional step involved as we have not registered all users yet. For this reason, we will still have the paper and pen sheet available for you to use as normal. We will be soliciting feedback through a QR Code, to be reviewed after the April holiday.
A total of six of our eight TEDxYouth@NIS talks are up on this playlist. Check them out here!
Talks by Willy/Charlie/Jack, Mr. Daewoo Lee and other NIS community members already available. The remaining two talks are coming soon!
