Focus on important matters, students advised

Learn skills to survive in the outside world while at university and do not whine about every small thing as “the world is not a bed of roses”.

WOU’s School of Business & Administration Acting Dean Prakash Arumugam was speaking at the opening of the annual general meeting of the full-time Student Council held at the main campus today.

PRAKASH PRESENTS HIS OPENING REMARKS.

Highlighting the differences between the outside world and the sheltered walls of the university, he said, “You may be comfortable here but the working world is a different ball game. Here, you can run to me when you have issues. However, in a working environment, even your boss might not want to entertain you. Remember that the working world needs problem solvers and not problem creators.”

He declared that the university is a good place “to learn the skills you need to survive in the outside world like problem solving, organisational skills and leadership”.

STUDENTS ATTENDING THE INAUGURATION.

He urged the full-time students to help the student council to do their part for the community, including taking the lead to organise activities when they see a need. He discouraged the habit of complaining about every small thing but to accept the fact they may not always get what they want. He reminded the students that the university is always ready to accept good ideas on how to make WOU a better learning environment

He also issued the challenge to the new 2019/2020 Student Council committee to outdo the outgoing council members in performance and activities.

THE OUTGOING STUDENT COUNCIL MEMBERS.

Outgoing Student Council President Muhammad Farid Arsyad Foad shared that managing a team requires patience since everyone will have their own opinions. He stated, “One thing I have learnt as a leader is that you must always be firm with your decisions and at the same time, be open to opinions and criticisms.”  

 

FARID ADVISES THE NEW LEADERSHIP TO BE OPEN TO NEW IDEAS AND CRITICISMS.

Following the presentation of certificates to the outgoing committee, the new Student Council members for 2019/2020 were inaugurated, as per list below:
