KUANTAN, 4 November 2017 – As an initiative to engage members of the public with the university, IIUM Kuantan campus recently held its open day to promote its health services and facilities.
The event known as the IIUM Kuantan Open Day (IKOD17) was held from 26 to 29 October. With a total of 550 committee members working to make this event happened, IKOD17 introduced new sub-programmes such as IKOD Fun and Games, IIUM Campus Tour, Ranggawijaya Playlet, and IKOD Nur Run, among others.
Other programmes organised by the Kulliyyah of Science were Magnificent 7 and IKOD-IPOD Mega Fruit Fiesta. IKOD Showcase, which was previously known as ‘Inside-Out’, was rebranded to give the whole programme a new look.
“Bringing the theme of ‘World of Wonder (WOW)’, we hope that anyone who steps into IIUM Kuantan campus will obtain something valuable from this campus and leave with a ‘wow’ impression,” said the Programme Manager, Ahmad Arif bin Suhaili.
He also admitted that more improvements can be made for future IKOD programmes, which have encouraging responses from the visitors.
“It could be better with a more detailed planning in certain areas and be held at another time of the year when it is not a monsoon season,” he said
“For me, one of the keys to the success of IKOD is the number of visitors. If the number is high, we could easily achieve the aims and objectives of the event,” he added.
IKOD Closing Concert marked the end of the event, with a closing speech delivered by the Chairman of State Health, Human Resources and Special Duties Committee, Dato’ Norol Azali Bin Sulaiman, as well as performance from TriFor and Far East. ***
