Welcome! =)

Hello, and welcome to our new website.

It’s been awhile since the SingSoc website was significantly updated, and we hope this new site will not only do the usual things like event updates or news, but also help us share memories from past events.

As much information from the old site will be transferred into this one, including an updated fresher’s guide.

We look forward to having more posts, updates, news, and of course, views from all our members and friends.

Thank you!
