Students of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, at the Muftau Lanihun College of Education, Ibadan campus, have been advised to shun cultism, indecent dressing, examination malpractices, prostitution, and other social vices and be good ambassadors of the institution.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Professor Olugbenga Ige, gave this advice during the matriculation ceremony of 1,200 new students of the institution at the Muftau Lanihun College of Education Ibadan study center.

Professor Ige said the matriculation ceremony symbolises the commencement of an incredible journey filled with boundless opportunities, growth, and transformation for every student as they step into university life.

“Your admission to Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko, and today’s ceremony mark significant milestones in your lives. You are embarking on a journey that will shape your future and contribute to the growth and development of our great nation, Nigeria.

“This matriculation ceremony is a testament to your commitment to academic excellence and the pursuit of knowledge. Hold onto this spirit throughout your time here.

“Our university is renowned for its commitment to quality education, innovative research, and community engagement. Immerse yourselves in the academic rigors, and take full advantage of the resources available to you.

“Holistic development is essential during your time at this institution. Education transcends the classroom. Engage in extracurricular activities and community service initiatives that align with your interests.

“These experiences will enhance your personal growth and equip you with the skills to thrive in a rapidly evolving world. Foster a culture of intellectual curiosity and critical thinking,” he advised.
