Students are introduced to student & academic policies and given a brief description of each course offered in the program. Orientation Week provides the students with the opportunity to meet with the college Dean, Vice Dean, Head of foundation Program and Academic Staff for any inquiries or concerns.

Being an English Club member necessitates speaking more clearly and listening more carefully; as a result, it will enhance communication skills. Also, students will feel more comfortable using English around people they trust and have fun with, and they will expand their circle of friends to people other than those in their class Activities/themes can be changed.
