GOMBAK, 22 October 2018 – For the third time, the annual “Saodah Wok Cup” bowling tournament was successfully held at Wangsa Bowl, Wangsa Walk last Friday (19 October) to foster strong bond between students and lecturers.
A traditional event organised by Communication students, the tournament has been named after Prof. Dr. Saodah bt. Wok of Communication Department for her great contribution to Communication Student Association (COSA).
“Believe in yourself, aim high and just enjoy the game,” Prof. Saodah said in her speech to remind the participants not to involve in the tournament without having any goal.
This third edition event has been enlivened by participation of 60 students and 25 committee members to make sure the event was a success and fun all along.
Assistant programme manager, ‘Aina Syifa who is a third-year student, told IIUMToday that this event not only brought students together but also led them to a healthy lifestyle.
With all the exciting moments, the most awaited session by all participants was the lucky draw.
