In My One-Day Uni Life 2.0, a total of 80 teenagers came to UCSI South Wing Campus from various schools and homes, namely Ruth Education Centre, House of Joy, Ti-ratana Welfare Society Malaysia, Sri Eden and Hii Chii Kok Foundation. Throughout the event, the participants were grouped according to their ambitions and preferred area of studies. With their groups, they attended 3 classes together with different faculties, catching a glimpse of how being a student feels like in the university.
The faculties and institutes that were on board include De Institute of Creative Arts and Design, Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Aquatic Science of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Food Science of the Faculty of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences & Liberal Arts and Institute of Music. All the faculties and institutes prepared interactive classes with the teenagers which involved hands-on activities and a brief introduction on the respective facilities and institutes. This allowed the teenagers to explore different areas of studies and understand more on the possible pathways that they can take in the future. Towards the end of the event, a talk was given for the teenagers to think about their dreams, and to encourage them to be courageous and strive for their future. The event then ended with a graduation ceremony, where all participants went on stage to receive a certificate. When it was time for good-byes, some participants said, “we want to come here everyday!”
Even though it was just a short event, we believe that we have sowed a seed in their mind to set their eyes on getting a tertiary education. “My One-Day Uni-Life 2.0” would not be possible without the support from our kind sponsors. We hereby express our deepest gratitude and appreciation to all our sponsors for making this event a memorable and impactful day for the teens.
