It was all joy on Wednesday as parents thronged the University of Jos (UNIJOS) for the matriculation of 7,000 students into 12 faculties.

Prof. Sebastian Maimako, Vice Chancellor of the university, in his speech, warned the new students against cultism and other anti-social activities capable of truncating their educational pursuits.

He said that 31,759 candidates applied to the school out of which the 7,000 were picked for the 2016/2017 session, and advised the new students to take their stories seriously.

Maimako said that the matriculation was to acquaint the new students with fundamental principles, norms and culture of the institution, and advised them to abide by its rules and regulations.

He also advised them to participate in all activities of the institution, especially sports, clubs and other societies, but warned that such activities should not be at the detriment of their studies.

The Vice Chancellor emphasised the importance of the social media to their studies, but urged the students to use it responsibly.

“You should use the social media for only positive things that will add value to your stay in the university.”

He warned students against publishing anything concerning the university without the written permission of the Vice Chancellor through the Registrar, and assured them of adequate security while on campus.

Mr Myom Jime, one of the new students, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said that he was excited to be in the University of Jos.

Jime, a student of Faculty of Environmental Sciences, promised to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution so as to attain his ambition of becoming a quantity surveyor.

“Even before I became a student, I knew that joining wrong groups would hinder my efforts towards achieving my goals in life. So, I will have no time for any such group.” (NAN)
