Council Interview Series (Part 3): The 35th Department Heads

Council Interview Series (Part 1): 34th Presidents Interview

By Collin Teo (16S06Q) and Ian Cheng (16S03M)

It’s been 369 days since the 34ths were invested, and 69 days since they stepped down. It’s been a mad term for them, with a litany of deadlines for proposals, preparations for events, but at the end of it all (like their 33 batches of predecessors), they have survived.
