Shutterbugs Captures Photography Lovers

A picture paints a thousand words. For the love of photography, “Shutterbugs”, was formed. Sunway University’s new photography club will be a platform for students of different backgrounds with a keen personal interest in photography, amateur or professional, acknowledged artist or enthusiastic novice.

For the inauguration of “Shutterbugs”, a photography competition, entitled “A Moment in Action” was held. The winning pictures successfully demonstrated an appreciation of art and a different perspective of the given topic. Alvin Lau Kah Boon who is currently pursuing a Diploma in Business won the competition with his picture of “The Riot Policeman”. The second prize winner, Poon Ching Mun from Sunway TES portrayed “A Baby Holding an Orange”, while Carolyn Ng Shih Ling also from Sunway TES and president of “Shutterbugs”, won the third prize with her picture “Mama Pig and Her Piglets”.

Sunway Students Spread the Love with TGIF Foodbank

Donating daily necessities is one of the most effective ways of supporting those in need. The Sunway Student Volunteers (SSV) successfully raised RM3,600 worth of food items and RM1,150 cash to be donated to the entities under the umbrella of Grace Community Services (GCS).

The project, aptly called “Turn Groceries in for Foodbank” (TGIF Foodbank), was initiated by SSV and Sunway Student Services Department (SSD) in partnership with GCS, a registered non-profit charitable organisation in Klang for charitable homes, rehabilitation centres, feeding centres, rural schools, poor families and individuals.
