By Bukola Olamona
The Acting Vice Chancellor of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, Ondo State, Prof. Olugbenga Ige, has urged newly admitted students for the 2019/2020 academic session to be good ambassadors of the Institution.
He made the call on Monday, last week, while speaking at the Orientation Programme for new students at a well-attended event held at the University Multipurpose Hall.
Prof. Ige, who congratulated the students for being among the few admitted out of the many that applied, enjoined them to abide by the University rules and regulations and to shun any form of social vices in order not to jeopardise their studentship.
He charged them to imbibe the core values of integrity, accountability, creativity, diligence, and dynamism, and to sustain the track record of excellence set by their predecessors. He promised that the University would strive to put in place structures and policies that will make learning and research conducive for them.
The four-day event also featured various speakers who took turn to charge the students, and educate them of how to cope with life in a tertiary institution.
The Deputy Vice Chancellor (Academic), Prof. Francis Gbore took time to answer various questions raised by the new students and pointed ways of resolving whatever issue they might have between them and their fellow students of staff members.
Those who also spoke include the acting Registrar, Mr. Opeoluwa Akinfemiwa, who spoke on rules and regulations; the Bursar, Mrs O. V. Ologun, FCA who spoke on how to go about payment of prescribed fees; University Librarian, Dr Rotimi Egunjobi spoke on how to take advantage of the resources in the library; Dean of Education, Prof. Iyabo Omoniyi also spoke on what constitutes indecent dressing in AAUA; among others.
Speaking earlier, the Dean of Student Affairs, Dr. Olusegun Owolewa, advised the students to always read on their own ahead of classes. He also charged them to attend classes as and when due because lecturers take attendance at the end of every class and award marks for it.
As the university frowns at indecent dressing, the Dr. Owolewa told them to shun any form of indecent dressing such as bad and tattered jeans, dreadlocks, sagging and Marlian behaviors.
