Atiba University, the newly established private University in Oyo State, Nigeria, has began its first academic session with 36 students and four faculties.
During the first matriculation ceremony held at the school premises, Prof. Sola Ehindero, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, said the vision of the institution was to provide education, training and build character that would encourage students’ zeal to dig up information on their own, using modern communication technology.
He explained that apart from ensuring a challenging academic atmosphere for the students to develop critical thinking ability and sound minds, the institution would also strive hard to provide scientific literacy among the students.
He advised the students that they “have to be disciplined and budget your time to accommodate both your academic and other campus activities. Remember that you have to reflect on yourself and your home background and ensure that at all times, you justify the trust, confidence and investment your parents put in you.”
