They say that success is a journey not a destination. It is about keeping up withconsistent achievement. The taste of success is particularly sweet now that we havebecome Sunway University. It is truly a privilege to share the news of this specialachievement with you, our alumni. This achievement is an acknowledgement of thequality of education offered at Sunway as well as the tireless efforts of our academicstaff, the opportunities in research and postgraduate courses. We shall continuallystrive to be a leading university in the region.Last year we also saw another milestone on our journey as we became officially ownedand operated by the Jeffrey Cheah Foundation. To Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah, his vision iscomplete as the Foundation is analogous to a “ship of dreams” that would sail a greatnumber of promising students who are sponsored an education with its ensuingopportunities and possibilities. A total of RM6.9 million was handed out from theFoundation mostly in the form of merit-based scholarships in 2010. These scholarships,given every year, are an investment with far-reaching dividends. By attracting top class students, we not onlycontinually improve as an institution but we attract the best minds that belong to the contributing citizens of thefuture. Our top scholars have indeed proven their capabilities as they have consistently achieved top marks amongtheir peers internationally year in and year out.The successes of our past students and scholars in their career and professional life are also a barometer of ourinstitution’s strengths and achievement. As such, we are always happy to hear how our alumni are doing and ourAlumni Office is there for you to continually connect with us. We welcome your visits to your alma mater whether itis to “walk down memory lane”, reconnect with your lecturers or share a personal story of success with ourstudents. Sharing between, and mentoring by seniors and juniors are an important aspect of learning for students.By doing so, we keep our students inspired and encouraged while keeping the Sunway flame burning.With that, I wish you a year of prosperity and success and I do hope 2011 will be an amazing year for all of us.Happy New Year and God bless.
