Full-time students hold Chinese New Year barbeque celebration

The WOU full-time students had a simple barbeque dinner that afforded them a nice break from studies and the opportunity to relax and get better acquainted over games and good food.

Acting Vice Chancellor Prof Zoraini Wati Abas, in welcoming the students to the event at the main campus today, advised them to use their time at WOU to make friends and build relationships.

PROF ZORAINI ENCOURAGES THE STUDENTS TO MAKE LOTS OF FRIENDS WHILE IN UNIVERSITY.

Over 40 people turned up, mainly full-time students along with a few lecturers, including School of Business & Administration (SBA) Acting Dean Prakash Arumugam and School of Humanities & Social Sciences Deputy Dean Jasmine Emmanuel.

THE ICEBREAKING GAME REQUIRES GETTING TO KNOW THEIR TEAM MEMBERS.

The icebreaking activity kicked off the informal part of the evening. Four teams participated with 7 members each – six students and one staff – and they were tasked to learn each of their team members’ name, programme and hobby.  A participant caught holding the ball being passed around within each group when the music stopped wasthen called to introduce his/her team members to the others.

Another activity, the ‘Shake Shake Shake’ game involved 3 pairs of students given a set of bottles with marbles filled inside one bottle for each round. Students had to flip the bottle over using their hands and transfer all the marbles to the other bottle. The winning duo for each of the three rounds of the game received angpows from Prakash.

‘SHAKE, SHAKE, SHAKE!’ THE MARBLES INTO THE BOTTOM BOTTLE.

The students and staff feasted on barbecued chicken satay, chicken wings, corn on the cob, egg plants, sweet potatoes, chicken ham with enoki mushrooms, and fried meehoon which they washed down with orange juice.
