The University of Port Harcourt matriculated 8,248 newly admitted student into the university for the 2016/2017 academic session.
The University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) held her 38th Matriculation ceremony on Thursday 27th, 2017 at the Convocation Arena, University Park and it was recorded that 8,248 fresh students took an oath of the institution.
The Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ndowa Lale, in his speech, congratulated the new students for successfully scaling through the stringent admission criteria specified by the Senate of the University, charging them to justify their selection amongst thousands of applicants who were not so lucky to secure admission into the University.
He also charged them to justify the investment of their parents and guardians in their education by taking their studies very seriously if they hoped to make a success of the rare opportunity.
“We are matriculating you at a time the University of Port Harcourt is repositioning itself as a globally relevant and locally competitive institution. It is, therefore, important for you to note that the first reason you have been sent here by your parents and guardians is to study. The second reason is to study and the third reason is to study very hard; everything else you do in this University is merely an appendage of your dedication to a culture of academic excellence and refined conduct”, he said.
“There will be no room for intellectual pedestrians or loafers on this campus when the time of reckoning comes, as it must,” he further warned them.
The Vice-Chancellor said that Management would not tolerate a situation in which students refuse to pay their charges in the false belief that they could go to school on credit.
“You must pay your charges in subsequent years until your graduation. Be warned that any year you fail to pay your charges; we will put your status as a student on hold. You will be subsequently deregistered from the University if we establish that you have stopped to meet your statutory financial obligations to the University as and when due.”
A breakdown of the 8,248 students showed that the Faculty of Humanities admitted 1,275; Faculty of Social Sciences 889; Faculty of Science 1,836; Faculty of Education 1,107; Faculty of Engineering 581; Faculty of Management Sciences 1,098; Faculty of Agriculture 422; Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences 192; School of Science Laboratory Technology 470; while the College of Health Sciences took in 378 students.
