200 Muni varsity pioneer students formally initiated

Wednesday November 19 2014


Arua: Many took it with a lot of skepticism when President Museveni in 2007, while meeting West Nile elders at his country home in Rwaikitura, issued a statement that the region would be granted a public university.
This came to reality at the weekend when the pioneer 200 students were formally initiated into the newly constructed Muni University by the Vice Chancellor, Prof Christine Dranzoa.
“We affirm our commitment in offering you the most competitive education to allow you achieve your potential and goal in becoming responsible citizens of Uganda and the world at large. Ours will be a transformational leadership in a transnational, model academic and professional university that inculcates competencies and values in you to succeed in the 21st Century,” Prof Dranzoa said at the event.
The university is currently hiring the premises of Psycho Social Training Organisation, as contractors put final touches on the campus’ home half a kilometre away.
The Academic Registrar of the University, Dr James Lam-Lagoro, urged the students to cooperate with the administration and management so as to achieve the purpose for which the university was started.
Ms Lorencia Akumu, one of the students, said: “We are satisfied with the conditions in the campus, the accommodation is fine, the learning tools are all good and we pray that the situation prevails even to those who will come after us.”
