Taylor’s American Degree Transfer Program (ADTP) recently welcomed a new batch of students, starting off the day with a series of orientation activities that were structured to ensure that the new students received a comprehensive introduction to the university life.
The day commenced with a warm welcome speech by Professor Dr. Anindita Dasgupta, Head of School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, where she emphasized the program’s commitment to academic excellence and support for students. She encouraged the students to interact, make new friends, and create a sense of belonging.
ADTP’s Programme Director, Dr. Loh Kah Heng, introduced the new students to their lecturers, academic mentors, support staff, and student leaders who then took turns to speak at length during their dedicated sessions. The new students were encouraged to explore their interests by joining clubs and societies that are available on campus. They were also briefed on academic expectations, available support groups and university placement services.
At the end of the session, the new students met with lecturers who are their dedicated mentors. The mentors will facilitate academic guidance and equip the students with important knowledge in order for them to succeed in their academic journey and to transfer on to reputable universities in the United States as well as other parts of the world.
