“Ignorance” Kills the Cat
Greetings!!! With regards to the title highlighted above, It has been worrisome that most of the UTP’s students are confused, or not aware of the roles that RCSU plays as a student body. In this entry, I'll explain and clarify what really is RCSU and what makes us different from other student bodies or management.
RCSU VS RC MANAGEMENT:
What is RCSU? RCSU can be simply put as the medium between students and the RC Management (which students always refer to as block O, or villages’ offices) in handling the welfare of students. In other words, we connect students to RC management. RCSU iS NOT RC MANAGEMENT!!! We are responsible to voice out your opinions to the management, taking care of your welfare, helping out the staffs, but again, we are not the staffs of RC management. So far so clear? You can always refer to us if you have any doubts or are confused.
Is Internet under RCSU Responsibility?
NO. Anything related to internet is not under RCSU responsibility. In fact, ITMS of UTP is in charge of it.
What Makes RCSU Different From MPP?
I believe that everyone knows the answer to this question. Anything within the residential college, except for internet is under the responsibility of RCSU. Example, broken washing machine or vending machine, problems with cafe, etc. Anything else will be the responsibility of MPP.
Fellow VS Supervisor:
Most of the students are still confused between fellow and supervisor. Supervisor is the staff that works at your village’s office. You always refer to them during hostel registration, or lost your key during office hours. Meanwhile, fellow is usually a lecturer, or a staff of UTP Management like IRC, JPSP, etc. You can always refer to fellow if you have any health problems or lost your key after the office hours.
Yes, aside from the different spellings – ‘quest’ and ‘camp’, these two ‘Edu’s’ also serve two different purposes. Eduquest is held every semesters to search for the PETRONAS scholars- to- be, while Educamp is conducted for the intake of future UTP students.
Well, basically those are the frequently confused terms. Please, never hesitate to refer to us if you have any questions or doubts. Remember, we are here for you.
