UMS Hi-tea creates networking opportunity with alumni


The University Malaysia Sabah (UMS) Alumni Centre recently organized a hi-tea for about ISO alumni from around Kota Kinabalu.

The program was aimed to celebrate the spirit of love for alma mater and to create good networking among alumni.

Among those present were the Deputy Vice Chancellor (Student Affairs & Alumni) Associate Prof Dr Raman Nordin representing UMS Vice Chancellor, Prof Datuk Dr. Kasim Mansor, and Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic & International) Prof Dr Shahril Yusof.

The event, which took place in a relaxed manner at the Chancellor's Hall Square near the UMS lake, succeeded in recalling the memories of some of the alumni who had gone through their studies.

Some of the alumni who were met during the ceremony thought that this kind of meeting program should be continued from time to time as a platform for them to meet and socialize with fellow alumni as well as university management and staff.

An alumnus from the Faculty of Education and Psychology, Mohd Rasmalyzan Abd Rashad said a program like this can be the best platform for alumni to share information and convey their views to the university management.

Mohd Rasmalyzan is the Chief Operating Officer of UOR Food Industries Sdn Bhd.

Another participant, Abdul Haidy Abdul Hamid from the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities in 2000, hopes that such a program can be held regularly so that the alumni can meet with fellow alumni, the management and the existing students. Abdul Haidy currently is administration head at UMS.

This opinion is also supported by Amir Shah Noor Ahmad, alumnus of the Faculty of Finance & International in 2006 who is working as a Diplomatic Administration Officer at MKN Sabah.

The alumni who attended the event were warmly welcomed by the director of the UMS Alumni Centre, Dr Arif Kamisan Pusiran and the staff of the Alumni Centre as hosts at the ceremony.

They were treated to a delicious evening meal and entertained by music from a busker who is also a UMS alumnus.
