The 2nd newsletter of FOM evidences a better response in respect to submission of articles and has resulted in it graduating into a magazine this time.
The front cover page designed by Mr.Naga BN is studded with a spread of pictures mainly depicting student and staff successes. FOM faculty had the opportunity to visit foreign varsities to present papers and students have been encouraged to participate in many national events. These avenues have been made use of by the staff and students to flourish on an individual, professional and institutional basis.
In this issue we have reports on Avicenna, the MQA visit, the University convocation, the Director General of Health’s visit and notes on the various co-curricular activities of AIMST FOM. The Dean FOM and DVC Academic affairs, DVC student affairs, Dr.Kishen the SCHOMOS Kedah chairman have contributed write-ups apart from a host of faculty and students.
As usual, a selection of FOM’s academic achievements has been captured mainly from the monthly meeting minutes of the faculty. The students excelled in both brawn and brain, winning sports, bioinnovation awards and quizzes.
Though it is difficult to separate the newsletter from the magazine, this issue has been blessed with faculty and students revealing their artistic dimension. The poems, verses, pictures, write-ups have the potential to feature in commercial journals/magazines all over the world.FOM has among its students and staff a bevy of professional organizers and event managers who could churn up a class ceremony within short notice and their reports will serve as motivation and as a guideline to many.
Reports from faculty/students include the Merdeka night, the 9ratri, Christmas celebrations, ponggal competitions, thaipoosam health camp, Chinese new year charity drive, the MEDSA revival, mega cultural night to name a few. Students and Alumni have shared their ‘electives’ and ‘internship’ experiences along with their views on learning styles and social networking.
