For Orientasi Pelajar Tahun 1 Medic/Dental/PPSK 2011: I would like to suggest that the secretariats involved, do Solat Tasbih berjemaah rather than do ragging etc. Then get the students to register for Quran classes every weekend (Saturday early morning, 1 hr) so that by the time they graduate, they also have completed Quran reading. Also organise Solat Maghrib & Isya' berjemaah every Thursday and do Zikir. Try that.
I think it is worth teaching university students about Islam, Quran, Solat & Zikir from first year uni because once they leave the uni when they graduate, things are not easy nor FOC. Moreover, they won't have time for these matters. Tendency is these important matters get pushed aside as life becomes rushed.
You will see that these times are precious moments and if untapped nor used properly, time is wasted. Remember, "Demi masa, sesungguhnya manusia berada dalam kerugian..." When you look back upon your own uni days, you will see how much time u wasted doing useless things for years!
103:1 (Asad) CONSIDER the flight of time! 
إِنَّ الْإِنسَانَ لَفِي خُسْرٍ (103:2)
103:2 (Asad) Verily, man is bound to lose himself
إِلَّا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَعَمِلُوا الصَّالِحَاتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالْحَقِّ
وَتَوَاصَوْا بِالصَّبْرِ (103:3)
103:3 (Asad) unless he be of those  who attain to faith, and do good works, and enjoin upon one another the keeping to truth, and enjoin upon one another patience in adversity.

I have not seen any university in Malaysia publish any guidebook for its students that touches on Islam, Quran reading, Solat, Zikir, Selawat, Arabic, Doa2, Istighfar, Taqwa, Muhasabah, Ramadhan, Zakat, Umrah & Hajj, Time Mx, Psychology, Inner Strength & Mind, How to be an Excellent Student, etc. Students have to be very strong to absorb a lot of useful knowledge. Students' mind, body & soul must be properly geared to receive knowledge. All knowledge comes from Allah SWT. Lecturers transmit knowledge.
