The University of Cape Coast (UCC) has held a three-day orientation programme for fresh students.
The orientation, which was held at the college level, was to create awareness of the University’s rules and regulations as well as provide platform for them to interact with University Officials on matters relating to their academic work in the University.
Addressing the fresh students, the Dean of Students Affairs, Prof. Eugene Dartey, advised them to abide by the rules and regulations that govern students' conduct and keep off activities that would not contribute positively to their future.
He urged the fresh students to focus on their education and not allow negative influence of others affect them, adding that they should be disciplined, punctual and attend lectures regularly.
Prof. Dartey encouraged them to set goals for themselves in terms of desired grades to serve as motivation to work hard towards achieving them.
The Dean reminded the students that the onus of realizing their abilities lies solely on them and the efforts they put into their academic work.
The students were taken through topics such as Disability Services, Library Services, Sexual Harassment, Security, Counselling Services, amongst others.
As part of the orientation, the students were taken on a tour to campus
