LUMS freshmen urged to try diverse subjects
Lahore: Lahore University of Management Sciences Vice-chancellor Dr Adil Najam has said the freshmen should try the diversity of subjects being offered by the university at its three schools.

Speaking to the newly admitted 1,007 students of Undergraduate Class of 2016 at LUMS Orientation Week on Monday, Dr Najam advised students: "Do everything; try out the entire buffet of knowledge".

He said LUMS was one of the few universities of Pakistan having students from far-flung areas like Zhob, Gilgit, Dipalpur and Layyah. He said almost 60 per cent of this class would be staying in hostels.

Complementing the academic excellence of the new batch, he said from the O-Level stream, 95 per cent students had scored 6 As and from the Matriculation stream, the average score of students was 91.5 per cent. He said the quality of the incoming class could be gauged from the fact that this year the yield rate of students to LUMS was 73 per cent one of the highest in recent years.

Dr Najam also stressed that besides scoring high in academics, students should also become good humans. "From now onwards, LUMS will define you and you will define LUMS so be the torch bearers of good values and ethics," he added.

LUMS Rector Abdul Razak Dawood urged the students to add maximum value to the four years at LUMS. He said Pakistan had no dearth of smart and talented people and the only need was right "Neeyat" (intention).

Pro-Chancellor Syed Babar Ali said a part of the financial aid dispersed this year had been given by LUMS Alumni. "As you will also become Alumni one day, start saving today to support an intelligent student who can't afford to come to LUMS," he said.

The welcome session was followed by a tour of the campus for the new student body and their parents. A 'Department Fair' has also been organised, where numerous stalls and exhibits were put up by various academic and administrative departments and students societies at the university. Dawn
