WEDNESDAY, 07 SEPTEMBER – 14 alumni students from each faculty at Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) participated in the ‘With the Alumni’ programme in conjunction with the Orientation Week (MSM) for the 2016/2017 Session, recently.
Director of UMS Alumni Centre, Mohd Raffie Hj Janau said, the programme aimed as a sharing platform by alumni who were successful, to share their experiences as a student of UMS.
“The invited alumni were from amongst entrepreneurs, engineers, human resource managers, deputy directors, geologists, lecturers, food quality managers and those associated to their respective faculties.
“Through this programme, the alumni gave the needed boost to new students not to waste their opportunity and focus on eventually graduating, earning a degree themselves,” he said in a statement today.
The programme was an annual event organised by the Alumni Centre, which started since MSM 2015/2016 Session.
Meanwhile, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Student Affairs and Alumni), Associate Professor Dr. Ismail Ali also expressed his full support to the activities organised by the Alumni Centre and proud of the achievements by UMS alumni.
“They also shared some ideas and gave some advice to the new students on career prospects after graduating by associating the course and curriculum taught at the university which could be applied in the workplace,” he added.
Alumni Centre adopts this approach to instil a sense of belonging amongst students towards their alma mater starting from the first day they set foot on UMS, and not only after they have left UMS and are regarded as alumni.
