About Odyssey TOP
Odyssey is a 4-day Transition and Orientation Programme (TOP) organised by NTU Cultural Activities Club. It will be held from 27 July (Fri) to 30 July 2018 (Mon).
Since its inauguration in 1991, the Nanyang Technological University Cultural Activities Club (CAC) has grown into one of the largest student bodies on campus and has attained considerable popularity and recognition from the public as a staunch advocate of the performing arts.
This recognition is underlined by the fact that the CAC is an umbrella organization for no less than 22 member clubs and that it manages numerous large-scale projects such as the well-received NTU Nationwide Talent search – Impresario and the annual Nanyang Arts Festival, NTU's very own version of the Singapore Arts Festival.
Every year, we see more than 500 students joining the CAC family, pursuing their passion for performing arts and event management roles. Besides having new faces joining our big family, we also have many graduating students joining our young group of Alumnus while embarking on their next stage of pursuit.
With its extensive influence on campus, the CAC has been officially recognized as a non-academic constituent club, being one of the four largest students' organizations in NTU.
