Pentecost University held matriculation for its fresh students for the 2020/2021 academic year. The ceremony came off on the University’s main campus in Sowutuom, Accra. It was held in two sessions due to an increase in enrolment in the university this year; to meet the pandemic protocols.
Speaking further, the VC hinted to the University community at the matriculation that PU has received accreditation to start new programs in this academic year.
He also said the University successfully implanted an e-library project and is set to start MPhil and Ph.D. programs soon.
The VC, therefore, called on the students to avoid distractions and focus on their studies.
He said, “we matriculate you today to the privileges and responsibilities of Pentecost University and as such, you are required to commit to the fundamental academic discipline which includes regularly attending lectures, submitting course work and assignments on time among others.’
He added that “we do not award certificate in loitering, attending parties, building or breaking relationships whatsoever; what we offer for which you are here is the academic certificate, which you must strive to get.”
In all, 1015 students registered and were matriculated to a professional, degree, master's program of the University this year.
This represents an increase of 118% on last year’s enrolment. The tremendous increase according to management is a result of internal recruitment strategies and The Church of Pentecost which supported the University through various scholarship and support schemes.
The matriculation oath was administered by the Registrar of the university. Some of the students who shared their views after the matriculation expressed satisfaction in the university so far.
According to Ebenezer Appiah, a Banking and Finance Student and a past student of Pope John’s SHS said he is impressed with the decency he has seen on the campus.
Contrary to their views he heard about other universities. He also said the school has “so far shown immeasurable interest in developing them holistically to complement academic excellence.”
