Encouraging students’ creative ideas to keep student life vibrant.

With that in mind, the Student Life Office did not halt operations during lockdown. We reached out to students from different clubs and encouraged them to start working on developing ideas, and organizing online competitions on their own, to help reactivate their vibrant community.

Everything we have done so far is an accomplishment – no matter how small, just like planting a seed. It’s very rewarding to witness the process: students taking in those ideas, which will grow and develop – at their own pace.
