SA Fresher’s Week 2016

SA Fresher’s Week 2016

The annual SA Fresher’s Week from 26th of September to 29th of September saw over 500 participants from all three campuses come together for an exciting week of games, outdoor activities and, in the true spirit of Malaysia, a great variety of fusion and traditional cuisine from our many different cultures. Day 1: Several performances by our very own Nottingham Dance Society (NDC) and Music Society (Mussoc)! There was also a tutorial by the NDC during which we saw many talented dancers in the crowd 😉 Day 2: A night of cultural exchange themed ‘Colors of UNMC’ where traditional games such as Batu Seremban and Congkak as well as local cuisine were shared with all our participants. There was also a ‘Language Exchange’ session during which different cultures taught each other their own languages Day 3: Many of our participants had their first ice-skating and laser-tag experience at Sunway Pyramid! Day 4: The SA Carnival involved a variety of food and games – even a Karaoke Booth and a station where you get to throw water balloons at our SA Executives! There was also a ‘limbo’ station – look at how flexible this guy is! We hope everyone had a blast!   Lim Hong Cheong Head of Marketing & Communications (Photo credits: Yap Jia...
Clubs & Societies Executives Camp 2016

Clubs & Societies Executives Camp 2016

The first ever Clubs & Societies Executives Camp (CSEC), which ran from the 23rd to the 25th of September 2016, allowed us to witness over eighty committee members from all clubs and societies under the flagship of SAUNMC come together for three days and two nights of grilling but rewarding intensive training. Among the program objectives of CSEC were to create a friendly and respectful environment for all CS (clubs and societies) executives, to develop communication among all CS, and to ensure they understand the aims of SA and deliver the best possible students experience to all of our students. However, these student leaders have over the course of three days shown us that we can actually do so much more. Their tireless commitment, dedication and team spirit have exceeded our expectations and we truly believe that the coming year will bring about more positive breakthroughs than what had been possible in the history of SAUNMC.   As we march ahead in this new academic year, doing our best to meet personal and team goals, let us take to heart this timely reminder from Henry Ford: “Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”     John Lim Hong Cheong Head of Marketing &...
Events Calendar Launch

Events Calendar Launch

        Events Calendar is finally ready! The functionality is pretty straight forward and I would suggest that everyone play around with it a bit and check it out rather than this being the typical walk through post on how to use the calendar. Currently it just has one event but hopefully that will not be the case once the clubs and societies submit their events to the Events Calendar. Events Calendar The aim of the events calendar is to have all the clubs and societies events in one place so that all students are aware of events organised by the Clubs and Societies regardless of whether they are a member or not, be able to join in on events that they may miss out on for whatever reason. Also this goes to addresses some of the students that just blurt out “UNMC is so boring, there is nothing to do”. One Key feature that i would like to point out is, the feature to add events directly into your Google™ Calendar. Please make sure of it as much as you can so that you never miss an event that you’d like to go to. All the fields along with Location of the Event are filled out automatically and you just have to add it to your calendar.     Clubs and Societies are encouraged to submit their events to the Events Calendar. Generally events will get posted as soon as it’s reviewed. The more clear and concise the filling up of the form is the faster we can review it and approve it to go on...

Firstly let me welcome you to the NEW Student Association website. This website is being developed in stages. If you are interested in finding out more about whats in store for the website read on. First Phase (Completed) Clubs and Societies Catalog All clubs listed on the website allows for signups. This was done so that new students as well as old students can engage the clubs and societies and also signup with them well before CS fair.

New clubs and societies will be listed out once all the ones that have applied have officially been reviewed by the SA staff and the Activities Officer. Student Council Student Council’s engagement and role is mostly known in certain groups. This year we wont to change that and increase participation and engagement, therefor please check them out and if you are interested read about them here.  The page is filled up with information you might want to know about the role of council and we do hope that you will participate.

We want to value what our previous execs have done for the SA and the university, as most of the plans that the previous execs have laid out and...
Bus Tracking

Bus Tracking

Our Students have developed a bus tracking system under a summer project offered by Computer Science Department, titled “Where is my Bus?”. The new system will be tackling a transport issue has been troubling students for a long time. Students are often frustrated by the uncertainty of the arrival time of the bus. Therefore, a bus tracking system has been designed to overcome this issue, providing a convenient service for the bus passengers. There will be a web application for this system which hopefully will be launched this coming academic semester. The system is designed to provide two main features. Updates of the bus status, providing the estimated arrival time of bus to the bus stops and provide the timetable of the bus. Students using this service can check the estimated arrival time of each bus to each location. Updates such as  “On the way”, “Arrived” or “Left”. Will be displayed accordingly. Besides that, the passengers can also check the schedule of the buses plan their trips accordingly. The project is currently being planned, designed and developed by 6 members Abba Lawan, Chin Jian Ji, Swaraj Dube, Lim Leong Cheong, Ryan Goh Chuang Hong, Cheah Dik Ken. The Student Association has worked together with this team in terms of facilitating the UNMC Sustainability Research Network who was conducting research on the best way to go about development of the system to work together with students who have the technical know how to get this project off of the ground. We are also providing support in acquiring beta testers for the project. If any of you are interested in signing...
