Following the announcement of the reopening of university and college campuses as part of the Ministry of Higher Education’s (MOHE) Recovery Plan, fully vaccinated students are returning to campus today for physical classes after a long period of learning online.

Sunway University and Sunway College were well-prepared for the reopening and warmly welcomed the return of excited young people on campus. To ensure the highest level of safety and protection of students and staff for learning and teaching, numerous safety measures has been implemented on the campus.

“We at the Sunway Education Group (SEG) have missed our students and are excited to have them back, safe and healthy, to continue with face-to-face classes. I am sure our students are also excited to be back too and to be able to see and talk to their friends and lecturers face-to-face once again”, said Professor Elizabeth Lee, CEO, Sunway Education Group.

To welcome and re-introduce the magic of campus life, Sunway University partnered with Nestlé to provide a truly warm welcome to the returning student community.

Students were surprised with NESCAFÉ sponsored by Nestlé and received a ‘Welcome Back’ cupcake specially prepared by the Sunway University Young Chefs Club headed by Professor Patrick Siau. Professor Siau was the coach of the Malaysia Pastry Team who championed at the World Pastry Cup in 2019.

“It was such a nicesurprise and find it really heart-warming. The coffee and cupcake are nice and I really enjoyed them”, said Teh Kai Hoon, an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) student from Sunway TES. “I think this is great because a lot of students might be tired due to the pandemic, and when we return to the campus and see such a nice gesture from Sunway, it really makes our day better”, said Priscilla, a student from Monash University Foundation Year (MUFY), Sunway College upon receiving the gifts.

“SEG together with Professor Patrick Siau and the Sunway University Young Chefs hope this bit of personal touch will help brighten up their first day back to campus. We expect a queue as students will have to adhere to the entry SOPs which include filling up and submitting the SEG digital health declaration form, display their MySejahtera fully-vaccinated status and get their temperatures checked. As such, we hope the cup of coffee graciously sponsored by Nescafe, and cupcake will ease this return process”, added Prof Elizabeth Lee.

"As life is returning to normal, students will be back to the university - after such a long break from their peers and lecturers. Nothing beats a great cup to NESCAFÉ to reconnect with friends and colleagues and have a moment of togetherness! So, welcome back fellow students and let’s start reconnecting where you left off, over a cup of NESCAFÉ with your peers and lecturers,” said Othman Chraibi, Business Executive Officer of the Beverages Business Unit, Nestle (Malaysia) Berhad.

Sunway University prioritises student well-being and the team hopes to spread positivity and perk up the spirits of our students on their return. Sunway University is also the only known university in the world that has launched its own #CampusWithaConscience campaign.

#CampusWithaConscience is an underlying principle that embraces everything students will experience during their time at Sunway College and Sunway University. This is the fundamental spirit at the heart of Sunway Campus Life; educating, encouraging, and engaging students in all aspects of a diverse and inclusive community to support them in adopting a lifestyle and lifestyle habits that truly reflect a society determined to create a better living environment for this generation and generations to come.
