On the hot afternoon of 20th November 2019, the newly elected Student representative Council members were brought together for an official appointment which took place at the (thankfully, air-conditioned) Chancellery Hall. NADi was invited as were the Directors of Skuad Media UNITEN and EmceeVengers as all three were organisations that would assist the council during their term.
NADi wandered into the halls of the Chancellery, a little taken aback by the air of intense seriousness but quickly recovered upon hearing the bits of laughter coming from the new line-up of the Student Representative Council. Each one of them were clad in professional suits, looking sharp with sunlit smiles plastered on their faces (I suppose the nervous streak had probably left them as soon as the election results were announced weeks before). They had little SRC pins on their blazers and the boys had the official blue tie, which made them look all the more dapper. A few of them namely, Nur Farah Shazana Binti Rashidi, Arvindraj Nadarajan, Nurnabihah Binti Rosli, Nurul Shahirah Binti Mohamad Radzi, Muhammad Ilman Hakim Bin Abdul Razak and Harni Aziera Binti Afsarizal had travelled all the way from UNITEN Muadzam Shah campus to attend the official appointment.
NADi was given a warm welcome and was soon engrossed in a light conversation before the event started. Ten minutes into talking about how fellow SRC member, Muhammad Amirul Aiman Bin Mohd Jais, had a test to attend to right after the appointment, we were soon asked to enter the meeting room as the Vice Chancellor Dato’ Professor Ir. Dr. Kamal Nasharuddin bin Mustapha, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Dato’ Professor Dr. Zamri bin Yusoff, Puan Hajah Rusmala Bt. Mohd Daud and Ustazah Nooraini from Muadzam Shah campus was about to join us and officiate the appointment.
A few opening words were given by the emcee, Jaie Azlan of EmceeVengers, before Dato’ Kamal gave us a little talk on the development of UNITEN and stressed that the number one priority is and always will be the welfare of its students. Continuing forward, he expressed how immensely proud he was of everyone in the room, congratulating the selected ones and wishing them his personal best. Dato’ Kamal also emphasised on the importance of BOLD 2025 and believes that it is vital that the council members work towards that goal.
Soon after, the President, Anas Irfan Bin Zainal Ambri, took the lead by introducing the line-up and the oath-swearing session took place right after.
The handing over of responsibility was then conducted with the presence of former SRC President, Amer Danial as well the former Secretary and Treasurer and thus, marked the official appointment of each member. Congratulatory remarks were exchanged and the floor was then open to a Q&A session, in which a few beautifully-structured questions were asked (at this point, NADi was convinced that the members of the council were definitely of debating background) and given adequate answers.
Of course the appointment would not be complete without a photography session and lunch. The ceremony came to an end around three thirty in the evening and NADi was thrilled to have been given a chance to witness the ceremony first-hand.
