Freshers’ Orientation for 2022/2023 Academic Year

Management of the Sunyani Technical University (STU) has held a two-day orientation session for first-year students of the university ahead of their matriculation, slated for 10th March, 2023.

Various Heads of Departments, Sections and Units were at hand to explain in detail the Dos and Don’ts as captured in the University’s Statutes.

Among the areas covered were, security, health, examination-related issues, accommodation, industrial attachment opportunities, counselling, I.C.T, financial services and general life on campus.

The students were given the opportunity to ask questions, share their experiences on campus so far as well as offer suggestions on the way forward.

As part of the orientation session, officials of the National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE) made a presentation on “ensuring national cohesion, unity and peaceful coexistence” among all Ghanaians.

The Deputy Bono Regional Director of NCCE, Peter Kwabena Gyasi, underscored the critical role of national cohesion and peaceful coexistence in nation building.

“Again, religiously, we will be able to go about our religious activities in peace when all religious sects decide to coexist, try to live in peace; and our mothers and family at home will also be able to go about their normal activities in peace and we advance forward as a nation”, he further explained.

“One of the practical ways we can ensure peace, unity and national cohesion is to be very decorous in our language because most of the youth have the tendency of inflaming passion in society, using derogatory remarks, using insulting language, using abusive language on their neighbours, most especially during the newspaper review programmes on radio and television”, he emphasized.

“Definitely, since we have a multi-party system in Ghana, various people will belong to various political parties. What it means is that if I am in party ‘A’ and you are in party ‘B’, it doesn’t mean that we’re enemies, it doesn’t mean that we should fight and it doesn’t mean we should marginalize others who are in other parties”, he added.

He implored the students to peacefully coexist on campus and at their various homes with people who share opposing political, religious or ethnic backgrounds with them in the interest of the nation.

The NCCE Deputy Director also advised the students to accept and respect the rights of others; saying, “we have fundamental human rights that the constitution has given us and as we respect the rights of others, they will also reciprocate our gesture.”
