Orientation Week January 2009

This past week, another orientation week has been succesfully held for IBS College new students who have enrolled in the January Intake 2009. The orientation acitivites lasted for the whole week.

The main objective of the orientation week is to let the students gain a taste of college life before they actually start classes and their journey into higher education. The week is activity packed, with the students playing bowling together and going to watch movie together. Activities are meant to provide the opportunities for the new students to get to know each other before their semester starts. 

Besides that, in order for the students to experience firsthand college studying life before the semester starts, the students are divided into groups and are asked to prepare to do a presentation by the last day of the orientation week. For most students, this is their first experience in preparing and actually performing a business presentation. This is an exciting experience for them, and also the lecturers would be present during the presentation, so the lecturer would be able to grasp the current English level of the new students. In order to prepare the students for the presentation, english classes and Microsoft Powerpoint classes ws organized.

Overall, it is a major success for the college and the students, and hopefully for the following semesters the students would be able to enjoy the same orientation activities.
