SMU Patron’s Day Presents #Photobalance Contest

“Celebrate Balance” is an installation created for PD22. It represents the interplay of different commitments facing today’s youth, and how they can balance and work to suit their best interests.

The open book represents a thirst for knowledge. Its empty pages symbolise the autonomy that every youth should enjoy in seeking education opportunities in fields of their choice.

The seesaw represents the importance of allocating time to leisure and the outdoors. Its slant on one end represents constant motion, and opportunity that awaits at every upswing (or downswing).

The 3 different shapes represent how education landscapes have evolved to have the strength and rigour to cater to, and produce youth with a variety of skills, competencies and talent, to serve and benefit every sector of our industry.

And of course, SMOO SMOO is our SMU Mascot, created for Patron’s Day in 2014.

Branded with the words “PD22” and “Celebrate Balance”, the above ideals are SMU’s own birthday wish for our students -- past, present and future.

From 21 to 28 Jan, join PD22’s #Photobalance contest when you pair up with a friend and snap a photo in front of “Celebrate Balance" at SMU Connexion Level 1, and both of you stand to win a Rejuvenate drink sachet from Unique Time worth $29.90, a discount voucher for your next haircut with top stylists from Toni & Guy worth $48, and a month’s free access to Kpop X Fitness online workout worth $50 each.
