By CTW Team

The summer semester kicked off with an orientation session for the new cohort of undergraduate students who have joined USIU-Africa to embark on their academic journey. To ensure a smooth transition into university life, the university organizes an engaging and comprehensive orientation program designed to familiarize students with the campus, academic policies, support services, and extracurricular opportunities.
The undergraduate student orientation, held from May 2 to May 9, 2023, provided a dynamic platform for students to connect with their peers, faculty members, and staff while acquiring essential information and resources to thrive academically, socially, and personally.

The orientation program commenced with a warm welcome from the university's administration, including the Vice-Chancellor, Deans, and key faculty members. Their speeches emphasized the institution's commitment to academic excellence, diversity, and student success. The students were encouraged to embrace the unique learning environment at USIU-Africa and make the most of the diverse opportunities available.

Throughout the orientation, students were introduced to the academic framework and requirements of their respective programs. They received guidance on course selection, academic advising, and the importance of maintaining good academic standing. Interactive workshops on effective study skills, time management, and life skills equipped students with valuable tools for their academic journey.

One of the highlights of the orientation was the campus tour, where students explored the state-of-the-art facilities, including modern classrooms, well-equipped laboratories, and an extensive library. They also discovered the vibrant student center, recreational facilities, and student support services such as counseling, career development, and health services. This firsthand experience allowed students to feel at home on campus and understand the resources available to support their personal and academic growth.

The orientation also featured interactive sessions with current students who served as brand ambassadors, sharing their experiences, tips, and insights. This peer-to-peer interaction helped incoming students gain valuable advice on managing their time, getting involved in clubs and organizations, and balancing academic and extracurricular commitments.

The orientation program culminated in the Fresher’s Bash on May 12, where students had the opportunity to showcase their talents, participate in cultural performances, and network with fellow students.
