Even if you are not, reading her blog allows you to find out about the NTU electives she has taken.

THE HAPPY SMUDENT
Blogger: Ivy Wah
SMU had been Ivy’s dream university since she was 16. She graduated in 2014, after 4 amazing years as a Lee Kong Chian School of Business student and the mama bear of SMU Muay Thai.
THS was started in 2013 by Ivy WAH, with the original objective of writing happy, shiny things about Singapore Management University. Then Ivy found out she was much better writing about the good and the bad about her SMU experience. So it’s really more like The Honest SMUdent now, with topics ranging from inspirational student lives, the loneliness of year 4, and the flip-side of exchange.
