20,000 Fresh students take admission Oath at NOUN

National Open University of Nigeria (NOUN), on Tuesday, administered the oath of matriculation to over 20,000 fresh students, urging them to use the opportunity to improve their self-worth.

Vice-Chancellor of NOUN, Professor Olufemi Peters, particularly urged the new students of the university to broaden the institution’s catch-phrase of “quality education delivered with equality and flexible access, to learn at your pace at any place.”

Director, Media and Publicity, NOUN, Ibrahim Sheme, in a statement, said, Peters stated this, during the 22nd Matriculation Ceremony of the university, which took place virtually across the 103 study centres nationwide.

Tuesday’s ceremony was the first time in the history of the university that the matriculation took place on a weekday.

Peters urged the fresh enrollees to pass on the university’s mantra to their family members, friends, colleagues as well as partners and associates in society and in the world of business.

He also challenged them to make the best use of the opportunities at their beck and call, for learning and excellence in the university to improve their self-worth.

“Your resulting prosperity afterwards, is a shared success for you, your immediate family and friends, for your alma mater – the NOUN – for Nigeria and the world,’’ he stated at the event that came barely a fortnight after the university’s graduation ceremony.

The vice-chancellor also informed them: “Every one of you is now our ambassador. The uniqueness of our university makes our graduates the focus of special interest and assessment by others, who are eager to determine the quality of training invested in you whilst here.’’

While emphasising the provision of a most rewarding online study experience by the university, he disclosed that in an effort to reduce the distance between the students and the university, “we are further set to deploy, in the next few weeks, a feedback system to harvest and resolve complaints that may arise in your interface with our various units.

“This has been coupled with other service delivery applications, including assessments – tutorials, tests and examinations.

“Our over 103 study centres and the headquarters are equipped with academics, professional ODL administrators, counsellors and appropriate learning infrastructure, including e-library facilities, to provide support that you will need for a successful higher educational experience.
