Themes of AU FYE Program
AU FYE Program is organized based on two basic themes illustrated in the diagram as follow:
Common University Experiences
We define the Common University Experiences as those events that are required or compulsory for all freshmen to attend.
The Aim: It is aspired that through series of introduction to the mission, values, and community life of the university, students will consider themselves as proud and active members of the unique Assumption University community, commit to shared values and expectations in both learning and way of life.
Project Information: This is an AU open house activity that organized for freshmen and parents. Freshmen will learn more about AU campuses, intensive courses and grading systems, basic rules and regulations, services and facilities, and tips for student adjustment.
We define the Extra-Curricular Experiences as those opportunities offered especially to freshmen so that they may receive academic support outside the classroom, become aware of the variety of resources the campus offers, and actively engage in the community life of the university.
Unlike the Common University Experiences, the Extra-Curricular Experiences are optional. Students are encouraged to participate at their interests and abilities.
The Aim: Students become actively involved in the campus/community and receive specific support networks and information about resources that best meet their needs. Students see themselves as active participants and leaders fostering the standards and identity of Assumption University.
Project Information: Here is a fantastic chance to discover activities of your interest! More than 50 clubs open their booths to provide freshmen with information such as music, dance, photography, environmental conservation, oratory and personality, football and many more. All clubs blow their bugles to welcome new members.
