In her Keynote Orientation address themed ‘Do not be Afraid' to the 2018 first-year students' at the NS Building within the University, the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Teresa Akenga called on the new first year students to be guided by the University Vision, mission and mandate in all their dealings.
The Vice-Chancellor called upon the first year students to have a personal agenda and vision, which will be their guide towards enhancing the achievement of the University Vision. She urged them not to be afraid to seek guidance from the academic and non-academic staff, and also not to be afraid to utilize the bountiful resources that the University has to offer within their respective fields.
In her sentiments, the Vice-Chancellor reiterated that the University is in line with the changing technological advancements, and highlighted that the University is committed to molding them into global brands in the field of Science, Agriculture, and technology. These she noted will be handy in helping them enhance the national development agenda which comprises the ‘Big Four Agenda' and Vision 2030.
She further called upon them to be wary of the effects of peer pressure, HIV/AIDS, drugs and substance abuse, and the impact of social media. However, she summed up by asking them to be guided by the Holy Scripture from the book of Isaiah 41:10 within their stay in the University.
Also in attendance during the keynote orientation address were; UMB board members, Deans and Directors/Members of Senate, University Staffs, Student leaders, continuing students and the University Alumni Officials.
