Freshers' Week - October 1999 The new academic year started with a ceremony for all freshers at the Atriju Vassalli (Main Quadrangle) on campus with the participation of a number of Academic and Administrative & Technical Staff.  The Rector, Professor Roger Ellul-Micallef and the President of the Students' Union (KSU), Ms Claire Cassar both addressed the new students. The University chaplain, Fr. Jimmy Bartolo, then officated at Holy Mass which was animated by a University band.

The KSU, with the University Administration, put together a full programme of events so as to introduce the Freshers to life on campus.  A large number of stands were put up in the Atriju Vassalli, staffed by members of the many student associations, each trying to encourage the new students to join their group.  There were Campus Tours, sponsored by the National Student Travel Foundation and an introduction to academic procedures with faculty stands full of useful information as well as fun events.

There was also a special Orientation Programme for new International Students.

The KSU has its own web site at
