NUSSU Rag & Flag

NUSSU Rag & Flag is an annual charity project featured prominently as part of the NUSSU freshmen orientation programme. Pioneered in 1957 as part of Welfare Week, the initiative has come a long way to be regarded as one of the University's most historic events in its annual calendar. Come join us and be a part of this meaningful and historic event in NUS! Make a difference to someone else's life today!
