INTI’s launch of a new campus in the heart of Subang Jaya marks the rise of a greatly enhanced teaching and learning environment encompassing not only state-of-the-art facilities and technology but also brand new programmes of study offered via an innovative blended and online learning platform. Embodying the concept of a cosmopolitan learning environment, with emphasis on openness and community, the new INTI International College Subang (IICS) will serve thousands of students from Malaysia and across the globe.
Amenities include a new three-storey building housing a 300-seat auditorium that serves as an impressive venue for presentations by local and international speakers as well as ample learning spaces. It also houses INTI’s new Centre of Art & Design complete with a design gallery, studios, Macintosh and Autocad labs, materials library and design centre.
The launch of the new campus building in Subang was celebrated with a 3-day festival comprising workshops and events by celebrities and industry leaders, and a community project. Dubbed the INTI Edge Festival, the events were orchestrated to project the international experience and innovative learning environment that INTI promises to deliver to its students. During the 3-day festival, INTI stayed true to its delivery of innovative learning experiences by inviting speakers such as Jay Sheldon, a television and film director who is a master of body language and signals.
A highlight of IICS’s 3-day celebration was the Dazzling Vibrante fashion show at the posh new gallery. The show featured the designs of nine graduating PJCAD students with a range of apparel that reflected their vision of the international fashion scene. The fascinating concepts ranged from 1930s Shanghai to Egyptian Goth. Among the designs featured were those of Nizam Zamil, 1st prize winner in the New Faces of YODA 2011 competition, and Hariharan Arasu, winner at the Kronenbourg 1664 L’aperitif fashion event in 2012 and apprentice of Dato’ Jimmy Choo in London.
Another memorable highlight of the launch festival was the community service project jointly organized by the United Nations High-Commissioner for Refugees and Diesel Malaysia. The Graffiti Competition saw 22 participants spray paint their interpretation of the theme, United Against Human Trafficking, with the winning design to be printed on Diesel T-shirts and the proceeds from sales contributed towards the cause. The project was also part of INTI’s efforts to instill volunteerism and build awareness amongst the youth of today regarding world issues.
The festivities ended with a bang at the Party Rockin' event at the Plaza. Party-goers danced the night away to the beats of the gorgeous DJ Patricia K and celebrity DJ/ VJ JoeyG.
