At Achievers University’s Matriculation, Falana Urges New Intakes To Study Well



An Alumna of Achievers University, Owo, Dr. Mrs Ranti Blessing Falana, has urged new intakes into the University to take their education seriously and study well.

Falana, a lecturer at Dominican University, Ibadan, gave the advice at the 16th Matriculation of the institution, held at Prof. Abubakar Adamu Rasheed Auditorium, at the campus in Owo on Friday.

Mrs Falana, who was the guest speaker at the 2022/2023 matriculation ceremony of the Ondo-based institution, also urged them to know why they are studying at the institution.

Speaking on the theme of the matriculation, “Choose to stand out”, Falana encouraged the students to always sit at the front in their classes as sitting at the back means lack of interest.

“Always take notes in classes, always participate, it will help you a lot during exams, go extra miles, go to libraries, go online, do not rely on the materials given to you by your lecturers alone, prepare for classes always, make friends that will support you academically, have a time for yourself, do not involve yourself in any crime that will result in rustication from the school.

“Set standard for yourself, do not imitate anyone, take good care of your health, do not let anything weigh you down, avoid indecent dressing,” Falana said.

On his part, the Pro-Chancellor of the University, Dr Bode Ayorinde, urged the new intakes not to hesitate to report any form of harassment or bully to the management.

The Pro-Chancellor, noted that the university community doesn’t allow any form of bullying or harassment and the institution is a free society.

According to him, “Our lecturers are parents, so there’s no form of sexual harassment or sex for marks from any lecturer”.

While appreciating the students for making the school their choice, he noted that the school have graduated over 6,000 students in the last 15 years.

He said ”You’re here for transformation, come through that transformation with dignity, it’s a worthwhile venture”.

“There’s no room for laziness, we don’t sell our university certificate, irrespective of who you are and that’s why our school fees isn’t much, we want to impact knowledge”.

He however, urged the parents to monitor their children’s movements and also appealed to the students to read their books thoroughly, obey the rules and regulations of the school and avoid fights.

Earlier in her address, the Acting Vice Chancellor of the institution, Prof. Omolola Irinoye, who congratulated the students, said that they were indeed lucky to be admitted into the school.

Irinoye, assured them that they would have the best education from the institution and would be able to compete with their peers anywhere in the world.

She said “You’re here to learn and not to play, be in your lecturer classes at the appropriate time and do not disrespect your lecturers in any way”.

891 students took oath of matriculation for the new Academic session.
