How did people stay in halls for like 3, 4 years if they don't participate in hall activities? Any difference also if I join or do not join my hall camp?

Stayed in hall 1, hall 4 and hall 3. Each hall has it's pros and cons la. Hall 1 had my own attached toilets but shared with tiong, they super dirty. Hall 4 rooms are old but they are the biggest, have alot more space than the rest. hall 3 got aircon and got lift. newest block then. Was nicknamed 'condo' too.

i even worse. didn't join hall camp as freshie. in fact i only went to hall in year 2, coz NTU doesn't allow freshies to have single room. yet, im a hall jcrc committee member, plus pple jio me for activities. yet i didnt really care much. just doing my basic job in hall, coz i was also founding a cca at tt time. managed to stay in hall throughout

i wud say... well, joining hall activities is a double edge sword. there r two types of people: those in control of the situation, and those who are just followers. those in control usually maintain their stellar grades, while sheeps... they lose control of their study time easily, and soon, their grades will slip, as they continue with hall activities.

ultimately, i wud say... dont put too much effort in cca. no point. it's still your grades and tech skillset that people want to see, not how dedicated you were helping your hall canvass for money or watever. worse if your cca is routinely misunderstood by the rest of the world
Caulibeam and Rachelyipyy like this.

main comm is well.. the management committee of the cca

ur cca is only that the name is unclear. ur cca mission is so recognized and strong, that even the uni has its own green initiative full time staff. mine? oh hell, it's misunderstood as in "controversial" to some parents
