PPPThe Vice Chancellor Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology on 4th September 2015, officially crowned the final day of the Orientation programme for the newly registered students in Bungoma and Webuye Campuses. The 2015 MMUST orientation programme in both campuses was unique in a sense that the campuses were admitting their first KUCCPS Government-Sponsored Students.

In his address to the students, the Vice Chancellor Prof. Fred Otieno thanked the community for their continuous support since the establishment of two campuses in Webuye and Bungoma. He appealed to the Community to continue supporting the campuses by allowing their children to pursue dream courses in the campuses.

The Vice Chancellor advised the new students to be vigilant during their stay at the University and provide relevant information on issues related to security. He noted that learning institutions have become the target for terrorists and therefore security is paramount. 

“The university is working on a programme that will train students on precaution measures they can take in the unfortunate event of an attack,” he said. Prof. Otieno also thanked the Community, especially the local administrators for their efforts in ensuring the campuses are secure.

The Vice Chancellor advised the first year students to take advantage of the Talent Scholarship programme offered to students with outstanding talent in various fields. He advised the students to be self disciplined, lead responsible lives and work together with their lecturers as well as other members of staff in order to foster a long lasting relationship. 

Prof. Fred Otieno committed himself to senior leadership visibility to all campuses. “I will strive to spend at least one day every two weeks in each of our MMUST campuses so as to make sure everything is running smoothly.” He said.

The VC assured students that MMUST will endeavour to offer nothing but quality education in all the programmes offered, create a financially stable University that is caring and student-centered. He urged them to remain focused throughout their stay at University.

Deputy Vice Chancellor, Administration and Finance, Prof. Joseph Rotich advised the newly enrolled Government Sponsored Students to set good standards as the pioneer group. He also advised them to uphold integrity and to spend their time responsibly and embrace their new community. 

The Deputy Vice Chancellor, Planning, Research and Innovation, Prof. Egara Kabaji, gave the first year’s four principles of success; self discipline, resilience, having a mentor or role model, loving themselves as part of self preservation.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor Academic and Student Affairs, Prof. Josephine Ngaira echoed the Vice Chancellors sentiments by advising the students to work together with the community and adapt to their new environment. She asked the community to embrace the students who hail from different backgrounds across the Kenya.
