Miri – 6 September 2013 – Club-In 2.0, a recent showcase of the student clubs of Curtin University, Sarawak Malaysia (Curtin Sarawak) at its Recreation and Event Centre, attracted over 750 students of the university.
Jointly organised by Curtin Sarawak’s Student Council and its University Life Department, the main objective of the exhibition was to encourage students, particularly those newly-enrolled in the current semester, to participate in its vibrant campus life through involvement in student clubs.
