Life at Amity University Dubai returns to full capacity this new academic year. To kick-start the semester, the University welcomed new students on campus for Orientation Day this week. After over a year of blended learning, the university is focused on building a secure environment that will empower the student community and prepare them for the world of tomorrow. The university is creating on-campus opportunities and activities aimed at transforming lives.
Through immersive programmes and faculty introductions, Orientation Day provides an avenue for students to get a better understanding of all that Amity has to offer. The day-long affair is followed by Fresher’s Week with a range of social events to encourage interaction among students.
From flash mobs, theatre, dance, games and ice breaker activities to learning about the various organizations and groups, Amity Dubai faculty and students came together to ensure that fresher’s feel at home.
Amity University Dubai Vice Chancellor, Dr. Saif Al Seiari, said “We would like to take this opportunity to thank the leadership of our great nation, the UAE and Dubai in making this safe transition from online to face to face. A student’s professional and personal journey begins when they enroll at University and we want to bring that spirit back. The collaboration, creativity and diversity experienced in a classroom strengthens and transforms personalities. Student interaction and classroom learning are key to ensuring normalcy and developmental growth among young adults. We have learnt that it is possible to remain safe and socially distant, while bonding with your friends”.
He added “Our 700,000 square foot campus is world class and can accommodate students and staff safely. Academic schedules and class structures have been developed for every programme, to take into account our return to full capacity.”
