Freshmen programmes/camps are organised annually by SMU seniors for the in-coming cohort. We highly encourage all matriculated students to attend the Freshmen Orientation.
Since the inception of SMU, the Freshmen Orientation Programme has been a traditional rite of passage for all SMU undergraduates. All freshmen attending the Programme are exposed to attributes such as teamwork, facilitation and leadership – all of which are important elements of classroom seminars, project work and CCA participation.
From 2013, as part of SMU’s vision to provide all students with a holistic education, the University launched the SMU LifeLessons – a values-based out-of-classroom education programme developed for the four-year undergraduate course at SMU.
The Freshmen Orientation Programme will be the first out-of-classroom experience for our incoming freshmen.
There are various CCA and school orientation camps, these are all optional.
