My first day in Lim Kok Wing University

The first day at Lim Kok Wing University of Creative Technology (LUCT) was in fact the day which I had been looking forward all this while. Before I went to LUCT, there were a lot of things playing in my mind. I was very worried and afraid that it will be a complicated place full of strangers.

When I first arrived at LUCT on the 23rd July 2007, the situation was totally different from what I thought. It was not as complicated as I thought. There were a lot of new intake’s students (freshies) like me went for the registration, settling bills and so on. The first day at LUCT was a busy day as we had to queue, filling forms and registers ourselves. As I reached LUCT earlier that day, while waiting for the registration process to start, I went to meet Mr. Azlan to settle my scholarship matters as I had to pass the letter of approval from the Star Education Fund to him. I was really nervous as I failed to find him because he was very busy at that moment. Therefore, I went back to the plaza and queued myself up at my faculty section, LELC section.

I felt that I had no sense of direction at all when I was at the plaza. I saw a lot of freshies queuing up for the registration whereas I still don’t know which line I should follow. As a result, I seek for help from the staffs who were passing by to know what I should do. I was then informed that I had to fill in the Student Info Updates form while queuing up for the registration process. The funniest part of it was I queued at the wrong place. As I registered for the BSc. (Hons) Software Engineering with Multimedia, I thought I was supposed to queue together with the degree students. I only got to know that I queued wrongly when it was my turn and they referred me to register at the foundation section. There, I had to re-queue again but fortunately it was a short queue only. When it was my turn to register, I had been explained about my course and the number of subjects I should take this semester.

After that, I was referred to the registry which was located close to the stage at the plaza to get my temporary student ID card. Unfortunately, they could not locate where my temporary ID card was, so they asked me to go back the next day to get the card. Then, I went to the bursary to settle my payment which was located at the gallery on the 2nd floor. I was extremely shocked with the queue numbers that I got which was number 176 where the queue numbers only reached up to number 80 at that moment. For each person who went to the counter, it averagely takes around 8-15 minutes. As I had forgotten to bring my documents along with me, I went to one of the counter and asked for alternative and they told me to go back to the bursary the next day together with my documents. I was relieved when I was informed about it as I could skip such a long queue there.

Thus, I went to find Mr. Azlan again to pass to him the form. It was such a coincidence to see that Mr. Azlan at the plaza, so I passed the form to him and he comforted me not to worry as I can always refer back to him when I had some difficulties. Later, after settling everything, I had my lunch together with my friend at Makanlah and took a rest there. After taken the lunch, we were directed to go to the Hall of Fame for some speeches. At the Hall of Fame, I saw a lot of faces from different countries such as Africa, Indonesia, Iran and so on. Then I realized that LUCT is a university filled with various types of cultures. The speeches were interesting and we got to know more about the university.

The first day at LUCT is a day that I will never ever forget as I came through a lot on that day. From that day onwards, I felt that LUCT will be my second home. A place where I study, interact, and enjoy. I believe there is no other university that is as best as Lim Kok Wing University of Creative Technology.
