Our Supportive Dean,
Erudite Professors,
Caring Faculty officer,
Distinguished Heads of Department/Units,
Compassionate Staff Advisers,
Ever Militant Parliamentarians
Ever courageous SOSSA-LASUITE,
Ladies and Gentlemen.
It is with great delight that I welcome you all to the Orientation Programme for Fresh Students of this our dear Faculty. On behalf of the 29th Social Sciences Student’ Association Executive committee members and our departments within the Faculty; – Economics, Geography and Planning, Political Science, Sociology, and Psychology, I welcome you enthusiastically to the Faculty of Social Sciences. I also congratulate you for scaling all the hurdles to secure admission into the Center of Excellence among African Universities according to the World Bank and as variously echoed by our amiable Vice Chancellor Prof. Prince Olarewanju Adigun Fagbohun SAN and Nigeria Executive Vice President, Prof Yemi Osibajo. Many other qualified candidates were not so fortunate.
This immediately confers a heavy responsibility on you right from the onset, to settle down quickly and make the best of this opportunity to acquire sound University education.
How much you take away and the success you make out of this learning enterprise depends entirely on how clearly you have articulated your goals in life and the degree of your commitment and dedication to the achievement of these goals. Every season has its people, and every person has his/her own time. You are the people of this season. How you make use of this season is what history shall record for you. The choice is clear: success or failure. Every generation has its own stock of successful and unsuccessful people, men and women who utilized or failed to utilize the opportunities before them.
For the one group, life has so much to offer; for the other group, life after the University is full of frustration, regrets, bitterness and decline. If you are wise, you shall choose today, the path of success which is travelled by only disciplined and hardworking individuals.
We therefore encourage you to develop, from this moment , a stakeholder mentality and attitude that commits you to join passionately in the care for the University environment and facilities, realizing that damage to existing facilities and the environment, in any form, will impact negatively on your comfort, your training, and, consequently, your future.
Several Resource Persons shall speak to you on various aspects of life on Campus and shall introduce you to the concepts that are ingrained in University education system. We have carefully arranged this Orientation Programme to point the way you should go if you want to make a success of your stay in this University. We believe that you shall take advantage of this rare privilege. Listen attentively to your lecturers, and seek further information from your Head of Department or the Dean of Student Affairs. Remember to address the issue of your HIV/AIDs status.
Visit our Voluntary Counseling and counseling unit, and take the advantage of the Medical Centre to ascertain your status and get counseled.
I take a line from the University anthem that says it’s a fountain for those who thirst for knowledge.
Everything worth the prize is worth the fight.
Everything worth the prize will require a real fight to achieve that prize.
Success or failure, decide wisely and decide on time. This is how it works.
Once again, I congratulate you on your admission into this most preferred University.
Thank you and God bless.
Mumuni, Opeyemi David
President, Social Sciences Students’ Association.
