Curtin Alumni Dinner

Went to attend Curtin Alumni Dinner at Miri's Eastwood Valley Golf and Country on the evening of 10 th May,2008. There were many strangers there and could only recognise a face or two . Well times have changed since I last completed my MBA at Curtin University of Technology, (Lutong Campus) in 2005. From this year graduation roll I could easily deduce that 90% of the students there are of Chinese origin. The explanation is simple. Being a private university it is beyond the reach of most native ethnic groups in Sarawak as it charges high fees. Financial merit therefore will not help much in redressing educational imbalances amongst the various racial groups here.
