Today,i would like to introduce about my university,that is Universiti Utara Malaysia.UUM was established on 16 February 1984 under the Universiti Utara Malaysia 1984 Order. The university was corporatised on 23 April 1998. The university is located in Sintok, Kedah.
UUM is my first choice,so when i get to UUM i was very happy and excited.Still remember my feeling when the orientation weeks,i was so nervous and also curious about everything.But now,i m a last semester student and also very familiar with the environment of UUM. Time flies~~
UUM is located in a small town and quite out of the way,so it is always have given the name of "jungle".So,UUM student doesn't have much entertainment there because the nearest town,Changlun is also located 10km far from UUM.In Changlun,there have a supermarket called C-Mart,There have some shops like Watsons,Bowling Centre,Hello burger and etc.Students can have a walk there when no class and buy some daily supplements at there.
Okay.From what you imagine ,you must think that UUM is really a boring place right.Then,you are totally wrong.Inside UUM,there have many activities you can do also.For example,Go-Kart, sauna,archery,playing tennis and badminton,golf,gym,hiking,swimming and so on.Not only that,There are also a lot of events will be organised by the school and sometimes they will invited some famous singer to anticipated the events.So,UUM for sure is not a place that will disappoint u down.

Besides that, scenery in UUM also is not a joke.There are many beautiful places that you can have a walk and take some nice pictures.
