Harvard University Association of Alumni in Singapore (1)
Dear reader,

There are so many questions and controversial issues that have arisen from Covid-19, that, for better or for worse, have not generated a nationwide unified response and / or decisions: the F1 visa issue for international students given on-line e-learning being one.

Whilst the HAA directors reach out to the University and try to understand if anything can be adjusted, if any of us - as HUAAS alumni and members - have suggestions on how to help the would-be freshman and current students, please let me or any of the committee know? I do feel that that we should be able to do a little bit in some capacity... and I am sure anything we do would be appreciated.

In the meantime - please remember to vote for the Board of Overseers and Directors! It is all in-line and a fairly painless process. Your vote matters in getting our international representation on those panels.

Stay well and safe and healthy,
Rebecca Woo (AB '89)
HUAAS President
