Singapore’s universities are so serious that a bit of torrential rain coming through the ceiling is apparently not enough to interrupt the educational process.
As seen in a video recently shared on TikTok, rain can be seen gushing through the ceiling lights of a lecture hall at the National University of Singapore. The people in the room (including the lecturer) appear aware but the class continued on anyways.
“The rain [really] came through our ceiling…mid-lecture,” TikTok user Eldora Boo wrote in the video posted yesterday.
According to Eldora, this particular lecture hall has a history of problems, including a faulty aircon and lights “turning off on their own.” Some of the hall’s panels were also soaked, probably due to the nearly non-stop rain we’ve been experiencing since the start of the year.
Many users in the comments said it was a knockoff of the famed rain vortex in Jewel Changi Airport.
Some joked that it was a water feature that might inspire the school’s architecture students.
“[T]he architecture students are writing this feature down in their notebooks as we speak,” C_.ereal wrote.
One user was all about positivity.
“Not flooding yet, alls good,” TikTok user Owen wrote.
