All freshmen will learn about campus life through a “A New Student Orientation Program” organized by Student Affairs. It is conducted before an academic year starts and it will help students transition into college life. They will meet new friends in a session designed to provide them with information while meeting other students. Senior year students will lead this session and can become mentors who can help freshmen adapt to campus life. Students will also meet faculty members and staff who will orient students to academic programs and services. At the end of the orientation, students will get Student ID’s, Campus Access Cards, A Sampoerna University Jacket, Wi-fi Access, a University Email Address and other resources related to facilities including library and student portal access.

At Sampoerna University, we believe that learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom. All students are required to complete an internship in a field related to their studies. An internship is an experiential opportunity to apply academic knowledge gained in the classroom to a real-world situation.
The Career Services Office provides guidance and resources to prepare students to seek and secure an internship through individual consultation and workshops in skills development, such as:
- Resume writing
Faculty deans and lecturers also provide support in recommending students to corporate and community partners participating in their Industry Advisory Boards.
Benefits for Students
- Strengthens the experiential learning of students by directly applying academic knowledge to real-world problems;
- Prepares students to enter the workforce and introduces them to potential employers;
- Provides an opportunity to explore the internship experience as a topic for the final project.
The requirements for internship program refer to the final project prerequisites, with other documentation requirements as follows:
- An internship application letter addressed to the desired internship partner companies;
- Two 3 X 4 color photographs;
- A cover letter that describes the willingness to work full time and to follow the rules in force of the intended employer;
- Attendance at a minimum number of internship seminars that provide guidance, support, and the opportunity to share experiences;
- A written summary report at the conclusion of the internship.
Students are allowed to destress and spend free time in designated areas around campus. These recreation areas are located in the Student Union and in outdoor facilities such as the soccer field.
Former students and alumni are invited back to Sampoerna University (SU) during an annual alumni gathering coordinated by the SU Alumni Association with support from Student Affairs. This event gives alumni and the university an opportunity to re-connect and initiate programs that benefit the Sampoerna University community. SU is grateful for the active participation of its alumni who contribute to the development of current students.
