By Naomi N. Nyarigoti

On February 9, Form Four students from Pioneer School Maragwa together with their teachers and parents’ representatives visited campus. The purpose of the visit was to provide the students with insight into the programs offered by the University and to inspire and motivate them as they made their career choices, and also as they prepared for their upcoming KCSE exams. The event was organized by Admissions Department in collaboration with the Department of Languages and Literature.

The event commenced with an introduction by Faith Adongo, a representative from the Admissions Department while Samuel Irungu from the same Department delivered a presentation on the various academic programs and admissions procedures available at the university. This session aimed to familiarize the students with the opportunities available for higher education.

Student representatives shared their experiences at USIU-Africa leading into a session of question and answer. The session allowed the Pioneer School students to seek clarification on programs offered and other related subjects.

Dr. Naomi Nyarigoti, the Chair of the Department of Languages and Literature, delivered an inspiring motivational speech. Her words of wisdom encouraged the students to pursue their dreams with passion and determination, ensuring they achieved their best. She emphasized the need to have focused reading as they prepared for their forthcoming exams, taking into consideration the cluster point requirements for their dream careers. She encouraged them to consider USIU-Africa as their preferred university.

Dr. Judith Jefwa, from Department of Languages and Literature also addressed the students focusing on the uniqueness of USIU-Africa and disqualifying the misconception that USIU-Africa is for a specific class of people. Dr. Jefwa further encouraged the students to have a sense of purpose and determination in their studies.

The students were then taken on a guided tour of the campus, where they had the opportunity to explore the facilities and learn more about campus life.

The event was concluded with lunch served at the famous Sironi Restaurant, followed by departure of the students, marking the end of a successful and enriching visit.
