It’s a wrap for this year’s Teenage Campus Run! From 4 to 6 January 2018, we headed down to Nanyang Polytechnic, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore Polytechnic and Temasek Polytechnic to join in the Open House festivities, and boy was it an absolute blast. Follow us as we recap what went down at the various Teenage booths. Let’s go!
#1 Dart you dare?
We’ve had our booths all set up and there were lots of freebies up for grabs, from yummy snacks to free skincare samples. But getting their hands on ’em wasn’t easy; we challenged our visitors to a game of darts which would then decide which activity they were to complete, depending on the coloured zones their dart landed on. Plenty hit the bullseye though, which allowed them to choose any activity they desired – targets locked!
#2 Trying their hand out at Japanese
Have a flair for Japanese? Our visitors had loads of fun trying their hand out at writing Japanese characters using our batch of Pentel pens, and can we just say they’re super kawaii? Taking home an awesome swag bag while picking up a new language (sorta)? Not bad of a deal!
#3 Race to lace
Those were merely a warm-up, here’s the real challenge: those who picked the blue zone were tasked to race their fellow pal to lace up the SKECHERS DLT-A kicks in the fastest amount of time, and things got real intense. Some lucky peeps even managed to score themselves SKECHERS vouchers by subscribing to our mailing list! How easy was that?
#4 Ready for your close-up?
Free makeover, anybody? Leave it to ETUDE HOUSE’s makeup crew to get our visitors all dolled up and looking glowin’ for the new school year ahead. Just take a look at these gorgeous ladies!
#5 Goodie bags galore
After completing the activities, our visitors got to take home their very own Teenage swag bag, which included a set of beauty press nails from MUSE & Co. – just in time to get your digits glammed up for the upcoming Valentine’s Day or Chinese New Year – along with a slew of other awesome goodies from Hello Panda, Lotte Pepero, Nivea, Pentel, SKECHERS and THEFACESHOP.
#6 Skincare woes solved!
Aside from the goodie bags, we also gave away free skincare samples from Therapeutic Dermatologic Formula which has a wide range of solutions for every skin type. Whether you have oily complexion or plagued with acne-ridden skin, this dermatology brand has all your skincare woes covered. Hello beautiful!
#7 Say cheese!
We’ve had an amazing time with everyone who popped by our booth to say hi, and of course, we weren’t gonna let ’em go without snapping a picture for keepsake. Check out all the happy faces who struck their best poses with our adorable photo props courtesy of our generous sponsors and partners!
While we were busy at our booths, we also didn’t forget to soak in the Open House vibes. Each polytechnic provided an entirely different experience, so follow us as we recap what went down at the different campuses.
The moment we stepped into NYP, it was already bustling with potential students all eager to get a glimpse of the vibrant campus life. There were lots of activities going on, but the highlight of NYP Open House was definitely the explosive performances put up by NYP talents. And of course, gotta give a shoutout to our ‘lion city kia’ Shigga Shay for delivering an epic set as always!
At RP Open House, there were plenty of opportunities for you to take part in activities and try out their equipment at the various course booths, which gave students a firsthand experience of what it’s really like to be an RP student. Think immersing yourself in virtual reality, piloting a legit drone, and watching robots in action!
What really set SP apart is the accessibility of transport with Dover MRT right at the doorstep. Upon stepping out of the station, we were immediately greeted by a line of friendly faces ready to welcome you into the campus. And you just couldn’t help but feed off their infectious energy!
From crafting chocolate, to making our own slime (it’s 2018, but we ain’t letting slime die!), to realising our pilot dreams in an actual flight simulator, there was hardly a dull moment at TP Open House. Aside from the array of workshops available, we also got to meet TP’s social robot Bobbie while we were exploring the campus grounds. Hey TP, can we adopt him please?
