University of Cambodia Welcome Week 2010

The University of Cambodia hosted the 2010 “Welcome Week.” This is the sixth project of University of Cambodia Student Senate (UCSS) based on the existing mandate. The main objective of this project was to provide high school students who have recently graduated with general information and guidelines about the university. Those students are given information about all majors, sessions, and programs, which they can use to select what they want to study. They can also explore what our university has to offer.
On August 23rd, the opening ceremony of this project was conducted in front of the University of Cambodia, under the chairmanship of many university faculty. Eight UCSS officers and 14 other UC students volunteered for this project. Those 22 organizers were divided into four groups: Morning Group, Afternoon Group, Saturday Group, and Sunday Group. They began providing information to students in the morning from 8 am to 12 pm, and then started again in the afternoon from 2 pm to 5:30 pm. The students finished their mission on September 6, so altogether it lasted for 15 days.
In order to give service to the students, we also used some materials provided by the university, such as brochures and pens. After the announcement, we saw that there were many students who had come to receive this kind of service from us. They asked us various questions, and we replied with helpful answers. Some of them asked about the scholarships, and others asked about the “I do strongly expect that, after finishing this project, the University of Cambodia will be able to attract more and more students, and it will become one of the biggest universities in Cambodia.”

Ms. Chea Chakrya, who is a UC student, gave her point of view about the University of Cambodia Welcome Week 2010. She noted that “It is good that this project could help students a lot in terms of providing information because it is made directly between students and students.”

She added, “It is really a benefit that students can understand more about UC, such as the credit system and majors here.” She hopes that new students will build networks with older students, especially once this project’s mission has been completed.
After completing this project, we counted that there were nearly 3,300 students coming from different provinces and high schools to our university in order to get information. Therefore, as the 2nd Vice President of UCSS in charge of this project, I felt very happy by seeing this big achievement for the UCSS and the UC. I think that the Welcome Week is really a good idea, because this kind of project follows the American system and is common among American universities. It promotes the reputation of the University of Cambodia by providing services to thousands of students in the public. I do strongly expect that, after finishing this project, the University of Cambodia will be able to attract more and more students, and it will become one of the biggest universities in Cambodia.
