With an aim of creating a sense of cohesion within OUC’s community of aspiring learners, the students were given a chance of exploring a captivating variety of college merchandise. This was followed by activities centred around ‘college life’ with an introduction to various clubs and societies that students could engage in post-commencement of studies. The induction day event concluded with a dinner that allowed students the chance to interact with peers and staff members and use the time as an opportunity to truly familiarise themselves with a transforming learning environment that OUC has to offer.
