PENANG, 21 NOV — As the November intake kicks off, Han Chiang University College of Communication welcomed its newest cohort of students with a two day long orientation programme on 17 and 20 November, 2023. About 20 new students attended the orientation programme.
The first day of the orientation programme began promptly at 8:30a.m as students streamed in for registration, followed by briefings and motivational talks.
One of the highlights of the first day was the ice breaking session. In this session, the students interacted and had fun with each other during games such as ‘Pass the Bottle’ and ‘DaFengChui’ before they ended the first day with a campus tour led by Student Representative Council (SRC) members.
“The ice breaking session impressed me the most because everyone was so friendly and enthusiastic,” shared a new intake student.
Day 2 commenced with a focus on the university’s mission, vision and core values. The new students were also introduced to our university college’s key figures including the members of the vice chancellor’s office, Deans of schools and the head of centers.
The students were given a warm welcome by the Deputy Vice Chancellor of Han Chiang University College of Communication, Prof Dato’ Dr Teng Tjoon Tow.
Later on, led by SRC President Ms. Ong Jia Wey, students pledged their commitment in the oath statement session.
There were also numerous crucial sessions covering academic affairs, support services, and campus life essentials, such as clubs and societies, library facilities and students’ dress code.
The November intake orientation came to an end after students had their course registrations and briefings in respective schools, facilitated by the student services department’s tutorials.
The hopeful words, “I hope that I can get great results for my degree and I also wish my lecturers are nice as well,” said a new intake student, reflected the eager anticipation for academic achievement as they embark on a new journey in Han Chiang University College of Communication.
