Dear fellow USM tesolians,

I'm glad to announce that I've been receiving the Leader magazine for the 4th time since registering as an alumni member. That's one of the bonus of being a registered alumni member, you'd get the latest news about the going-ons at USM in printed form.

There are a lot of stories about USM in its earlier days and many lovely pictures. I enjoy reading them, and I'm sure you will too. Makes you want to return as a student again, hehehe.

You may get more information from here

Enjoy the rest of your holidays!
