UniKL MIMET students should feel fortunate to have a campus that offers so many opportunities for relaxation in the midst of lush greenery, shady tree-lined avenues, lake and beachfront. Nothing could be more therapeutic than curling up on a bench under a willowy tree, a book in hand or the day’s newspaper – to be pleasantly distracted now and then by a squirrel that scampers by and up a tree.
