The management of Ekiti State University welcomed parents and students alike to the matriculation ceremony of the fresh students.
People from all works of life were in the University premises to celebrate with their loved ones who have been admitted into the University to study.
A parent while speaking to a repreaentative of Event News was very thankful to God for journey mercies from Lagos down to Ekiti. When asked if her expectations were met after seeing the structures in the school she said ‘I used to think this school will be just like a secondary school but I’m pleased to see the structures, I even had to take a couple of pictures to show my husband at home’
The students have resumed academic activities and registration for a while now and have also had the opportunity to witness an event. The Mr and Miss Fresher pageant.
Some of the students we spoke to were optimistic about their expectations at the end of their stay in the institution. Some wished for a first class while others would be satisfied with a second class upper grade.
Miss Fresher, Adewuyi Labake Miracle, while speaking to our representative showed gratitude to God that she was able to see this day but wasn’t very happy because she was still expecting her father as at the time of interviewing her. We later found out that he eventually came.
It was all fan fare. Earlier in the day the matriculation was marked with the traditional beating of freshers and splashing water on them. We learnt that some unscrupulous elements used the opportunity to extort money from the freshers. This has been a common practice every year.
We wish all fresh students of Ekiti State University a smooth ride through their stay in the institution.
Efforts to reach the Vice chancellor of the institution proved abortive.
