July is here and we are now in the process of welcoming our new students to the English Department at Binus. Obviously at this time, it is a disappointment that we are unable to meet in person. This year most of the induction activities will be completed, but they will be conducted online.

As part of our induction programme, Ibu Wiwiek hosted a video conference on reading and writing. Many of our students at the English department have a passion for creative writing and express aspirations to publish their stories. Studies on this topic have not yet started – the semester begins in September, but this video conference serves as a way for our new students to get excited and consider their writing career in more detail.
