A Family Away From Home

Congratulations! You are about to embark on an exciting adventure—life in a new hemisphere, new continent, new country, new school. SSA’s goal is to ease your transition into your new life by providing a close-knit community for students in UC Berkeley. The association offers a family away from home: a sense of familiarity as you navigate your way around Cal.

SSA hopes to be there for you even before you set foot on campus for the first time. The current students in SSA will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have: from concerns about majors, to food and accommodation. Our events are aimed at making the enormous campus feel smaller and cozier for you, as you get to know fellow Singaporeans and Malaysians at Cal. The Family System within the association will also create opportunities for you to forge closer bonds with other Singaporeans. In addition, we will be hosting a variety of networking sessions for you to meet with other Singaporean and Malaysian professionals and students working or studying in the Bay Area. With so many events in store, we hope that you are as excited as we are, to begin this exciting journey and year ahead at Berkeley!
