I was brought to new audio editing laboratory and audio recording studio.
This is really impressive. Being a video producer I do work with audio production houses at times. This is almost the same to those out there, and even better than some small audio houses. I was told they spend thousands setting up this. Well I trust them. The wall, the equipments are not cheap. This is industry standard.
The sound editing suite is as impressive as the studio. Using with Mac platform, this is broadcast level! I can really see the quality spent on building this and providing the best for the students.
The mock up court room is another big surprise. This is how the law students going to role play here. I believe this one of the first few mock up court room for students.
There is also TV room catered for students during their free time. Very nicely design with great colour scheme. On top of the TV room, they also have room for table tennis and more.
Food is never a problem in the campus. I had my lunch there. There’s a quite a good selection at the moment with the temporary food court called Recezz; several cafes in the Academic Blocks, and the 5 restaurants run by students from Taylor’s School of Hospitality, Tourism & Culinary Arts, namely Truffles, Thyme, Tarragon, Tangerine and Temptations.
I was informed that the first four restaurants offer lunch and dinner set menu (3-course meal) for RM10 and RM15, respectively!
Temptations is a multi-service restaurant offering a wide range of food for breakfast and lunch. Once the Commercial Block is completed in July, it will feature a permanent food court and a host of eateries, from bakeries to cafes, restaurants and fast food joints.
For a campus as huge as this, parking could be a problem. However as I was informed at the moment; close to 1,000 existing open air parking bays for students within the campus compound and at least another 750 more to come by July; several security guards are stationed at each car park. The best of all, parking is FREE!
I always believe that a good college/university will provide the best of their students. The amount of investment spent of bringing the best quality equipments and best people is unbelievable. The commitment to build a man-made lake in the middle of the campus is a big loss in space but a huge gain in environment. Many colleges in Malaysia tends to make more money for business while Taylor’s tends to make the best for its student. With such huge investment and commitment in this campus, I believe they will do well maintaining their high quality education system.
As I mentioned earlier, as an ex-Taylor’s student, they never compromised on results. Me, my friends and some of my cousins are the products of this college. Everyone is doing very well now and still well sought after. It was a great tour and great experience touring the new Taylor’s Lakeside campus.
