The USIU-Africa hostels hosted their annual award ceremony on Saturday, November 25 in the auditorium. The event was held to recognize outstanding residents, and their contribution to the hostel environment.
Over 25 awards were offered in categories ranging from Best Resident Assistant, Best GPA for the different years of study, Most Valuable Player (male and female) in sport, and best members of the Dean’s Residents’ Advisory Board (DRAB) and Entertainment Committee.
Speaking during the ceremony Housing Manager Mr. Michael Kisilu commended the residents for making the hostel “a home away from home”, and for their collective contributions of KES 20 000 raised to support Compassionate Neighbors Children’s Home. He also introduced the Department of Housing’s newest member – Housing Officee Mr. Bonface Inganga.
The event concluded with a celebration of those residents celebrating their birthdays in November, and those departing the hostels at the end this semester.
