YOU MADE THE BEST CHOICE – FUOYE VC TELLS MATRICULATING STUDENTS.

The Vice Chancellor, Federal University Oye Ekiti has assured the 2014/2015 academic year matriculating students that their choice of the university was not a mistake and that they will never regret it. He said the institution, though still very young, has all it takes for any serious student to excel as the university has outshone all its contemporaries.

The Vice-Chancellor further challenged the freshmen not just to pass through the university, but also to let the university pass through them. “Everything has been put in place to make learning easy for you in FUOYE; you must make use of all the resources to your utmost advantage. Avail yourself of the opportunities available to make your period of study here a pleasant one. Listen, participate and ask questions where and when need be in order to get prepared and functional for university education in FUOYE”, he charged them.

Recounting some of the strides of the young but vibrant university, Professor Asuzu said FUOYE was the only one among its peers to offer Engineering Programmes and had earned a place as number seventeen among all Nigerian universities in the 2014 Web metrics ranking. He also said that, in view of the high and outstanding performance of FUOYE students, a student has benefited from an exchange programme and is currently studying at Hamdong University, South Korea. Three others were recently awarded scholarships by the Federal Government and Chevron, separately.

 According to the Vice Chancellor, the 2014/2015 new students are coming at a remarkable period especially with the infrastructural revolution being witnessed across the two campuses of the university. He admonished them to make personal commitments to their studies and parents/guardians and also to strive to imbibe the motto of FUOYE which is “Innovation and character for national transformation”.

Also speaking, the special guest of honour, the Governor of Ekiti State, Peter Ayodele Fayose represented by his deputy, Dr. Olusola Kolapo Eleka, said the State Government is amazed at the development in the university in spite of its age.

Corroborating the Vice Chancellor’s earlier statement, the Deputy Governor told the visibly elated fresh students that it was not a mistake for them to be in FUOYE. “The way the university grows is amazing as it has outgrown all its contemporaries” Dr. Dolapo Olusola Elaka said.

The Deputy Governor pledged the readiness of the present administration in the state to assist FUOYE in any areas of need.

Also present at the occasion was the representative of Executive Secretary of the National Universities Commission (NUC), Ahmed Zakariya.

A total of eight hundred and ninety three (893) students across the four faculties of Agriculture, Engineering, Humanities and Social Sciences as well as Science took an oath of allegiance.

It should be recalled that the institution matriculated its first set of students on the 14th of February 2012. All things being equal, this first set of students will graduate this year, 2015.
