The Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Prof. Joseph Fuwape has advised the newly admitted students of the institution to imbibe positive attitude to academic activities and strike the right balance in their social life.
The Vice Chancellor gave the advice at the commencement of the orientation program for new students admitted for the 2018/2019 academic session.
Fuwape urged them to attend lectures, practical classes, workshops and other allied academic activities regularly.
The VC warned the students that they can only earn a degree at FUTA if found worthy in character and learning at the end of their studentship in the University.
The Dean of student affairs of the institution, Prof. Gbenga Onibi, who also addressed the new students, congratulated them for being part of the lucky ones that secured admission into the university.
He said unlike the secondary school, the university is a different society, no bells to wake anyone up from sleep or rules requesting one to observe light out. He however, added that the university has rules and regulations guiding every activity.
Prof. Onibi expresses profound gratitude to the university’s management team led by Prof. Fuwape for the special and continuous attention that has always been given to matters that concern the welfare of students.
According to reports, 3,620 students were admitted for the academic session from the over 18,000 candidates that chose the institution in the UTME administered by JAMB.
