n behalf of the faculty and staff of the University of the West Indies, Mona , Western Jamaica Campus, I extend a warm welcome to all our new students. As you begin your journey with us here in this beautiful city of Montego Bay, you are embarking on an academic experience that will be unforgettable: stimulating lecturers, challenging courses and exciting social interactions with staff, fellow students, and members of the community.
At the WJC, you have the distinct advantage of being in a relatively small and intimate environment, ensuring that you are treated to personalised and individualised service by our willing and capable staff. Even as we grow in numbers, it is our aim that the focus on, and care for our students' academic, physical, emotional and social wellbeing will always be our priority. The Office of Student Services and Development will have a full and exciting range of sporting and other co-curricular activities planned for you and I urge you all to participate wholeheartedly in everything that is offered to you.
I look forward to meeting all of you in person as together we enter this fifth year of the WJC's establishment with hope and enthusiasm.
Dr. Luz M. Longsworth, Director
