As another semester begins and the freshmen roll onto campus anticipating the joys of life as a campus student, many have been reminded not to be naive. In a routine welcome address to the new comrades at the beginning of the semester, the Vice Chancellor Prof. M.F.Mbithi saw it fit to give the new students afew words of wisdom on life in the university.
Speaking frankly, Prof. Mbithi did not mince his words highlighting the need to make the right decisons while persuing their higher education. According to an article on the university site, the VC said “Ultimately, the choices you pick will make or break you. Choose today which masters you want to serve.”
The public address previously known to be a welcoming speech to the new addition to the student population at the university, seemily went to be quite the reality check for many students. Consequently, many students took to social media to share the highlights of the address as well as their opinions on the oration. In a Instagram post on local tabloid magazine Mpasho, indicated that many students agreed with Prof. Mbithi’s statement.
