On the 5th of March 2021, Academic City University College held its third matriculation ceremony to formally welcome its newly admitted freshmen and women into the university.
A total of about 100 students comprising nationals from 15 different African countries have been enrolled for the 2020/2021 academic year to pursue Academic City’s uniquely designed STEAM-based academic disciplines.
Speaking at the ceremony, Prof. Fred McBagonluri, President and Provost of Academic City congratulated the newly admitted students for meeting the requirements to be part of the Academic City community and urged them to fully participate in all campus activities to enable them build the necessary credentials to succeed after school.
He assured the students of the university’s commitment to offering them the best campus experience and innovative academic programs tailored towards preparing and equipping them with the requisite skills and professional training to help them become relevant and competitive in the job market.
“Our innovation and entrepreneurial thinking are deemed core to a student’s foundational learning and development, and hence are designed into Academic City’s programs to create leaders of thought and initiators of ideas”, he further explained.
Speaking on behalf of the matriculants, Mr Yineteili Tioyem Abii, a Computer Engineering student, expressed their delight in gaining admission into Academic City and assured their commitment to abide by the rules and regulations governing the university.
He was optimistic that Academic City would provide them with the requisite skills to contribute meaningfully to the development of the African continent.
Mr Abii admonished his colleagues to work assiduously to achieve excellence in their academic journey.
“I implore all of us present today not to stray from our goal but to always strive to achieve distinction in our academic lives”, he noted.
The representatives from the University of Cape of Coast and the University of Mines and Technology advised the students to take their studies seriously, be responsible, hardworking and above all be self-disciplined.
