Some of the students and parents who interacted with the Vice Chancellor expressed their appreciation for the smooth registration processes. They encouraged the University to maintain this standard in the successive years.
“I am very happy to see such a great team which strive towards one goal. If we can carry on with this team spirit of hard work in serving our students, we will surely steer this University towards the right direction,” alluded Prof Mbati. Prof Mbati was happy to see parents who accompanied their children especially those who were registering for the first time. “This shows that the University and the parents of these students work together in making sure that opportunities are given to these students to pursue their dreams and careers as future leaders. Transition from high school to tertiary can be intimidating and sometimes confusing to these youngsters. It brings joy to me when I see parents giving all their support to their children to settle into their new way of life as University students” he concluded.
