The University and School of Computer Science and Engineering (SCSE) warmly welcomed our freshmen during the SCSE Freshmen Orientation 2019 and the Freshmen Welcome Ceremony (FWC).
The orientation programme was held over a period of 4 days from 5th-8th August. With the help of student leaders from the school they were introduced to the various facilities within the University through a campus tour. Through the Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) Club and the freshmen were introduced to the vibrancy in campus life and the numerous student led activities and events so freshmen can fondly look forward to. The University FWC was held at the Nanyang Auditorium where the University officially welcomes all freshmen. This is an important rite of passage for freshmen to be inducted into the University. They were also welcomed by the SCSE Chair and Associate Chairs, sharing on the SCSE programme and experiences at LT2A. They were briefed on the school’s academic and support system. This was done in conjunction with other departments and offices; namely: Student Wellbeing Centre (SWC), Career Attachment Office (CAO) and Overseas Entrepreneurship Programme (OEP), coming together to share with them on career planning.
The freshmen were introduced to their classmates and peers in a light hearted way using various fun games and activities. The highlight were the field games and activities and had an interactive time playing and pitting against other Orientation Groups (OGs) bonding through their group identities - Zephyr, Eros, Triton, Luna, Hypnos, Ceraron, Ilythia and Nike. In addition, the games also introduce the important transitional life skills such as communication, adaptability, objective setting & performance evaluation.
The freshmen had their off-campus orientation activities on Sentosa. At the end of the orientation programme the freshmen were successful inducted into the NTU's SCSE fraternity. They forged new ties and warmly embraced the new environment and earnestly looking forward to the challenges ahead.
