There are numerous possibilities available to you that will assist you in achieving your job goals, learning new skills, and making new acquaintances. In addition to lectures and seminars, your social contact and relationships are extremely vital in order to get the most out of your university experience.
Students were reminded of the importance of hard work by Fuwape, who pointed out that the time between matriculation and convocation is not particularly long.
“It is critical to put forth significant effort in order to complete the voyage effectively. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of the numerous resources and facilities available to you at the institution in order to realize your admirable goal.
As I challenge you, I encourage you to prepare yourself for success by creating your own reality, and remaining devoted to your dream. “Position yourself for excellence; your success is certain if you work hard and remain focused,” he emphasized.
‘One of the most important things in the university is that you complete your work on time,’ he reminded the students. ‘When it comes to delivering on assigned work and projects, don’t procrastinate or waste time,’ he cautioned the students.
Throughout your time at the institution, you will be provided with an environment that is conducive to studying. I therefore encourage you to put out the necessary effort in your studies and to take advantage of the numerous learning opportunities available on campus.”
It was reiterated by Fuwape that the university has a zero-tolerance policy for vices, and he urged students to abstain from all forms of social vices such as examination malpractice, academic fraud (including cultism), bullying (including sexual harassment), disruptive social media posts (including bullying), indiscipline, and other despicable activities.
He stated that the university will use the big stick whenever necessary to put a stop to errant students and anti-social behavior. He added that there would be no compromising on discipline because students would be evaluated on their academic performance as well as their overall character in order to receive their certificate.
