BRAC University continues with its exciting first-year advising program for the freshers of Fall, 2015.
As a part of the Freshman Orientation program, new students met with their First Year Advising Team (FYAT) during the FYAT Day on 31st August, 2015.
Each FYAT group comprises of a faculty adviser and peer mentor who provide individual and group advising to support new students, monitor their academic needs and performance, and guide academic planning during their first year at BRACU.
The fun-filled day, entirely run by student volunteers from all departments, commenced with an inaugural speech by the Vice Chancellor Professor Dr. Syed Saad Andaleeb and a brief address by Dr. Seuty Sabur, Director In-Charge of the Office of Student Affairs and Teaching & Learning Centre, on the first year experience, academic expectations, and campus learning and advising resources at BRAC University.
This was followed by a brief on the Writing Centre by Kerry Sauer, Coordinator of the Writing Centre along with a tranquil session of meditation by Safina Binte Enayet, Psychosocial Counselor from the Counseling Unit at BRAC University.
Video and student presentations ensued upon student services and campus resources. The program ended with a raucous program of freshman student groups presenting their singing, dancing, poetry recitation and other talents on stage.
