[The Star] Taking good care of the students

SEGi College Penang students can now enjoy some tranquil environment at the college’s newly installed rooftop garden.

The garden on the rooftop of the SEGi Administration Resource and Technical Centre at Jalan Green Hall, features various eye-pleasing plants, a water feature and an artificial turf with a view of the neighbouring heritage buildings.

The college also launched their well equipped gym at the SEGi Student Personal Area for Communication and Education and the SEGi Cafe 32, featuring a variety of western food for the students and administrators.

SEGi College Penang principal Cheah Teong Keat said the college came up with the idea to have a rooftop garden as they wanted the students to have a natural setting in the campus to unwind.

“As for the gym, we want the students to be healthy.

“The cafe on the other hand, is to make food accessible at a subsidised price for the students,” he said at the launch on Tuesday.

The chef in the cafe is a lecturer at the college while the Culinary Arts students help out.

Cheah added that the college’s main aim was to give the students a complete campus lifestyle.

“We want SEGi to be a full-fledged campus hidden in an urban jungle,” he said.

Penang Deputy Chief Minister II Dr P. Ramasamy, who launched the new facilities, praised the college for providing a vast range of services for its students.

“To offer greenery, a cafe and a gym in an urban setting is not easy.

“This shows the work of a school that not only looks into education but also encourages a memorable experience for its students,” he said in his speech before touring the new setup.
