There are probably a lot of things in life that you will remember forever: the first time you had your wisdom tooth removed, your first love, or even that memorable trip overseas.
For most students in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), one such event would be the Convocation Festival. The UTM Convocation Festival (FESKO) is a bi-annual event, which is celebrated in conjunction with the UTM Convocation, spanning up to a week.
UTM is hosting its 59th Convocation Festival (FESKO59) on the 26th-31st October, at the Dataran UTM. At an estimated visitor count of 60,000, it is one of the largest carnivals not just in Johor but also in Southern Malaysia.
FESKO59 caters to a wide audience, offering a variety of activities over five days. If you are interested in running for a cause, the Midori Run is the perfect event for you.
“Midori” here is the Japanese word for green, which is the concept of sustainability and going green, synonymous with UTM’s aim to create an eco-friendly campus.
FESKO59 will also pit gamers against each other in tournaments for two of the most celebrated games worldwide, FIFA and DOTA 2! On top of that, there will be many more activities, including Seni Khat Workshop UTM, Makeup Tutorial, Joran Warrior and International Day.
Moreover, the festival also showcases up to 150 stalls, selling food, clothing, home appliances, games, services and many more, attracting aspiring entrepreneurs not just from companies and the public, but also among UTM students.
