On the 12th of October,the new students gathered in the lobby as they awaited the Students Association members to come and take them on a tour of the school.We were very excited for them starting their academic career at FMU.This was an opportunity provided for them to learn about different areas of the school that will aid their adaptation and every day activities especially that of their academics.The new students got to know about the location of the classrooms,laboratories buildings,school canteen & gym,even down to the express delivery station..Pretty sure it was a lot to grab but I know they will come around soon enough.

  1. Senior-freshman Exchange

Immediately after,they had an orientation session,it was an introduction to academic and non-academic life at FMU,so all new students were required to attend the orientation session.We had our very own Dr. Innocent and Delali a 2nd year student in the association dish out some words of wisdom as per their experience in China.It is always more accurate coming from one who has walked the journey they were about to embark on.The Students life Department also addressed the pressing issue of litter around the dormitory.The freshmen were also given opportunity to ask questions on whatever that’d like to know about the school and China at large,was an opportunity to learn about the great programs and services at FMU.
