Mr Vincent Serem Principal

MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Our campus is tranquil, easily accessible and offers a serene learning atmosphere. We are committed to provide the best training, cutting edge research and transformations to our students in their academic journey.The moment one enrolls in our campus, he/she becomes an esteemed student of not only one of the oldest tertiary institution’s campus but also the best in many ways. This therefore will mean that one becomes part of the academic giants and part of an important heritage in this region and country.

The campus offers many opportunities and challenges that are all aimed at providing students with an environment within which to grow and realize their full potential. This means that the esteem that goes along with being a student of the campus carries with it a responsibility.

It is important to note that in the college, students will not have teachers following them to see whether they did what they were meant to do or ringing bells to make sure they are in class or in bed. Up on their enrolment, there may be no prefects waiting to report on their behavior or misbehavior, there may be no parents checking to see whether the students came home on time or slept out. All these and many more will be the students’ responsibility and partially campus’ controls alignment routine. We encourage students to learn to manage their time, their freedom, their money, and other resources. It is in this regard that we embolden our students to learn to enter into religious societies, academic & social associations and to manage them along with their patrons.

The college life is a multidimensional experience. While our beloved students will be expected to excel academically, this should also be a period during which they should take full advantage of the available resources to grow morally, spiritually and in every other respect. In short, this is a time to grow in every way that makes them a whole human person. Our approach towards the development of these whole round students is based on the team work and the accompanying disposal of intellectual capacity by our staff in every aspect of the campus operations.
