Student Orientation for January 2009

(17-18 January 2009)

The student orientation for the fifth semester was held simultaneously in Penang, Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur and Johor Bahru on January 18th, and a day earlier in Kota Bharu.

The students received goodie bags of WOU t-shirts, pens, bookmarks and orientation CDs upon registration for orientation.

The regional office directors welcomed the new students and briefed them on the rules and regulations. The students across the country were treated to a pre-recorded speech by Vice Chancellor Tan Sri Emeritus Professor Gajaraj Dhanarajan projected on the big screen.
