More than 80 students, tutors, lecturers and staff of Wawasan Open University attended the university’s first prom night at Berjaya Georgetown Hotel.
The function was organised by the university’s Penang Student Association (PSA) to usher in the year 2009.
The event, themed ‘Starry Starry Night’, was truly an occasion to remember for many who came in stunning outfits. As the emcee of the evening, Foo Chuat Meng, put it, “everyone here is a star tonight.”
The guests thoroughly enjoyed the fun-filled evening of food, friendship and music, with witty banter from Foo, entertainment by the versatile band, Traffic Lights Trio, games, and the crowning of the prom king and queen.
Among those present were WOU Vice Chancellor Tan Sri Emeritus Professor Gajaraj Dhanarajan and wife Puan Sri Sue, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic) Prof Wong Tat Meng, Regional Operations director Chong Kong Hoong and Penang Regional Office director K. Manoharan.
Other activities organised by PSA in the past include hiking up Penang Hill, a trip to the Balik Pulau durian farm, a visit to the St Joseph’s Orphanage and participation in the CIMA Penang Branch Business Game 2008.
