Students returned to the Higher Colleges of Technology Fujairah Men’s College for the beginning of the spring semester on 5th February and were welcomed in an assembly by the HCT-Fujairah Director, Dr. Dave Pelham.
Dr. Pelham encouraged the students in their educational pursuits and wished them a productive semester. He also shared two strategies that can lead to student success at college.
“First, good attendance. Those students that have very low absent rates are far more successful in their academic pursuits. Second, getting help. Students who reach out to their faculty and college staff as soon as they begin to face a problem are far more likely to effectively navigate their college career”, Dr. Pelham said.
Following the Director’s speech three students were honored for a special achievement in the first semester. The Abbas brothers, Mousa, Ahmed and Omar received certificates for excellent attendance and were applauded by students, faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication.
These students have shown a remarkable attitude to their studies. They understand the importance of what they are learning and can connect this process to positive goals for the future. They also understand the importance of attendance, completing assignments on time and contributing to class discussions and group work.
All staff and faculty FMC are extremely proud of them and wish them all the success that they deserve in the future. Well done to the Abbas brothers.
