The Vice President, Academic and Dean of Graduate and Research Studies of the African University College of Communication (AUCC), Prof. Kwaku Armah has told freshmen of the January Admissions segment of AUCC that “education is a lifelong adventure which starts from the womb and ends in the tomb.”
He said this at the 2nd matriculation ceremony which was organized for the 2nd batch of students enrolled in the January admissions segment of the 2012 academic year.
Prof. Armah counseled the students to be serious with their studies and advised them to make sure to combine the right attitude to the knowledge that they will acquire in AUCC to ensure their future success. For according to him, knowledge without the right attitude was not enough to take a person far in life.
The chairman for the occasion, acting AUCC president, Mr. Bernard Otabil also advised the freshmen to use the new media to broaden their knowledge and not for non- profitable or dubious ventures.
Other faculty members of AUCC who took turns to advise the students included the vice president, administration, Mr. Ato Amoaning- Annan, the chair of the journalism department of AUCC, nana essilfie conduah and the dean of strategic studies, Mr. Osei Piesie Anto.
The registrar of the University, Ms. Rosamond Allotey led the students to swear the matriculation oath after which the director of students’ affairs, Mr. Ogochukcwu Nweke, blessed the matriculants.
A total of 250 students consisting of 123 Business and 127 communications students swore the matriculation oath.
It will be recalled that AUCC held its 1st matriculation ceremony for students enrolled in its January admissions segment in 2011 soon after the historic launching of the AUCC Business School.
