The start of endless possibilities
Monash Malaysia welcomes hundreds of students to university life.
Hundreds of new students began their uni life at Monash Malaysia on 22 February 2016.
Special programs were conducted to welcome students and their parents into the Monash community. Senior students wearing a welcoming smile, were easily accessible to guide the fresh faces to where they needed to be.
Monash Malaysia President and Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Helen Bartlett welcomed the new students to Monash Malaysia by congratulating them on joining a supportive and dynamic community. In her speech, she encouraged students to be involved in club and society activities, and to also take advantage of the Orientation Week to make friends and familiarise themselves with university life.
“University life goes beyond academics. While you are here for the next three to five years, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Your journey to a new beginning starts today,” Monash University Student Association (MUSA) President Shahandyka Ozal Mohamed Kassim encouraged the newbies.
Parents were also taken on a campus tour and were invited to a separate information session, where they were also received by Prof Bartlett and senior management representatives. They were given insights into various aspects of university life, from academic matters and scholarships to exchange programs.
