INDUCTION WEEK CONCLUDED IN HIGH GEAR
On 6th October 2017, the management of Kigali Independent University ULK along with students gathered in the conference hall to conclude the induction week which had been going on since 2nd October, 2017.
The conclusion was characterized by a number of activities which include signing performance contracts, cultural dance, testimonies from new students, various remarks by important personalities, to mention but a few.
As students who were in high spirits due to the fact that they were rejoicing for the benefits got from the week, they kick-started the function with an uplifting performance whereby a group of dancers entertained everyone in the room through an interesting traditional dance.
Speaking at the function Dr. Ezechiel SEKIBIBI, ULK Vice Chancellor, thanked the new students for the courage, the spirit of brotherhood and discipline which defined them during the whole week. He also said that the university will continue to keep a caring eye on them to ensure that their academic aspirations are all met.
“The university is proud of you for your courage, oneness and good manners which defined you over the days that have gone by. We promise to keep doing our best to enable you to embrace all your academic dreams”, he said.
As students who had learnt a lot in the induction week, they had to express their readiness towards the realization of a number of activities during their stay at ULK. It is in this respect that they delegated three representatives of theirs to read out their pledges before handing them to the Vice Chancellor to be signed by both parties (students and ULK management).
In their pledges, they vowed among other projects to strive for creating savings groups which will be helping students to save the little money they would afford to lay hands on so as to put into practice the knowledge and skills learnt from the speakers who addressed them during the induction week.
All is well that ends well. The function ended in reading out the internal regulations the university has put in place to guide students throughout their studies.
