The Vice-Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Professor Olugbenga Ige has admonished the newly admitted students of the institution to embrace the habit of early and complete registration, avoidance of violent acts, indecent dressing as well as comporting themselves in an orderly manner.
The Vice-Chancellor gave this charge at the four-day orientation exercise for the newly admitted students which started on September 20th, 2021 held at the Olusegun Obasanjo Multipurpose hall (OBJ).
According to the Vice-Chancellor, “Orientation exercise was to clothes newly admitted students with pertinent information for a better studentship and proper academic concentration.”
Ige added that the university has provided suitable facilities and engaged qualified personnel to instil knowledge and help them do well in their academic careers.
“Above all, the kind of education we foresee for you as a university is that which gives knowledge and skills for self-reliance in a conducive environment. Hence, I charge you to make judiciously use of this opportunity to sharpen your skills through the knowledge platform created by the University of the Centre for Entrepreneurship and development, the industrial training funds program, the sports centre, the student’s work-study scheme and such other students group that promote talents and skill that are duly registered with the university.”
Furthermore, he commended the efforts of the student’s affairs department headed by Professor Segun Akanbi for organising the program.
Some students who spoke with this reporter after the programme expressed satisfaction over the various topics treated by experts in the institution and pledged to abide by the rules and regulations that guide conducts in the university.
Leke Omolade Pius, a student of Geology, said the orientation was a great assistance for the freshers as it exposed them to tools needed to succeed in their respective courses of learning.
He added that the orientation has reduced the anxiety in some freshers and has also helped them to understand school expectations.
Fatimah Opeyemi from the Department of Animal and Environmental Biology agreed that it was an educative program and shared more light on some of her doubts.
Agboola Comfort from the Department of Microbiology felt different.
“I can not say the orientation met up to my expectations because the majority of what was spoken about has been explained to us, so I feel the orientation should be done the first week of resumption,” she said.
