Seremban's Orang Asli House0001 (1)

ICAAM Charity Contribution to The Semai Orang Asli Community, Cameron Highland

Seremban's Orang Asli House0001 (1)

The Semai Orang Asli Community (45 families) of the 17th Mile off Jalan Pahang, Cameron Highland needed financial help to upgrade their living standard from poverty level. This was the conclusion drawn by Dr Benen Foo Ban Nyen and his fellow members of the Tropicana Mother Teresa Charity Group after their maiden visit to this Community deep in the jungle.

Several projects were presented to Dr Benen Foo the Special Advisor of ICAAM by Mr Christe Arokiasamy who devotes his life as a volunteer to help. The ICAAM Committee decided to fund RM40,000.00 into the construction of a 4 feet wide and about 5 km long concrete Path which has now completed and has impacted the daily activities of the said Community in particular the children who can now travel to and back from school in clean shoes and uniforms unlike before especially during raining seasons.

IC Malaysian Society featured in Imperial College website

We were pleasantly surprised that the Imperial College Alumni contacted us for our story on meeting up with Imperial freshers just before they fly off to the big city of London, to pass them tips we’ve gathered over our years studying at Imperial. While we thought that would be a great idea, an even better idea came to us- why not get the current Malaysian society at IC, who organized the event themselves, to share their experience? After all, they were the ones who put in the effort, while we support them from the background, both financially and through various advice. Kudos to the current Msoc team, you’ve done a great job placing your story and pictures in the face of the Imperial College website!

Freshers at Sentosa

As the College gears up for the start of term, alumni associations and Imperial College Union societies linked up to prepare new international students for studying at Imperial and living in London.

 

In Malaysia, Imperial College Union Malaysian Society held a three day camp in Port Dickson for freshers to get to know each other and for current Malaysian students to pass on tips and advice. Since many international students will be travelling to the UK alone, current students were keen to share pre-departure hints, what to expect upon arrival in London and settling in at the College. Carol Ann Cheah, about to begin a degree in Bioengineering, said: “I guess now we won’t be making the rookie error of flagging a Hackney cab from the airport fresh off our flights!”

Around 90 freshers and 5 alumni attended a similar event in Hong Kong, organised by Imperial College Chinese Society. Students were keen to quiz alumni from Imperial College Alumni Association in Hong Kong (ICAAHK)about their experience at the College and to find out a bit more about what Imperial students get up to once they’ve graduated. The Vice Chairman of ICAAHK, Ken Ho (Civil Engineering 1984, MSc 1985), talked about the Association’s events and activities, and also introduced the ICAAHK Scholarship and its application requirements.

Imperial College Singapore Society (ICSS) organised a medieval themed event at Sentosa beach resort for freshers to mark the start of their Imperial journey. Joshua Goh, President of ICSS, described the event as “an opportunity for freshers to meet and get to know the people they’ll be going to Imperial with”. You can find lots of photos of the event on their Facebook page.

A full program of Welcome Week activities can be found on the New Students website. Don’t forget to tweet @imperialcollege using the #ImpCol hashtag if you have news you’d like to share.
