Subject: Assumption University hereby confirms that the opening date for classes for the Undergraduate Semester 2/2011 is November 28, 2011 at the Hua mak and Suvarnabhumi campuses.
We welcome all students back to classes and hope that the turbulence and sufferings of the unprecedented floods will be left behind us as we move forward to our agenda of learning. To the Faculty, staff and students who have been directly affected by the floods, we offer our sympathies and solidarity.
Through the efficient coordination of the Deans, Chairpersons and program directors, we have been able to mount on to the University’s LMS some of the learning materials for courses. We shall leave the materials online for students to further refer to them. However, the University LMS does not substitute class attendance and participation.
Kindly recheck the Mid-Term and Final Examination Schedules and the dates for the closing of Semester 2/ 2011 and the dates for 3/ 2011.
We wish all our students the very best in their studies.

Assumption University International Students:
Assumption University assures all international students that it is monitoring the situation of the floods currently affecting many parts of Bangkok, including the potential threats in the immediate vicinity of Suvarnabhumi campus.
As of the present moment, both our university campuses are dry. The floodwaters are in some parts of Bangkok city before they exit into the Gulf of Thailand - and, even if and when they do come to our two campuses, they will be weakened because of the heightened siphoning activity by the Bangkok Metropolitan Authority. There is no immediate threat or cause for alarm.
