McPherson University, Seriki Sotayo, Ogun State, has officially admitted its new students for the 2023/2024 academic session at its 12th Matriculation Ceremony held on Wednesday, recently at the University Multipurpose Hall.

The matriculant took their matriculation oath as administered by the Acting Registrar of the Institution, Mr. Olufemi Adebowale.

They pledged to, among other things, be of good conduct and ensure peaceful co-existence with all other members of the University Community.

Earlier, the Vice-Chancellor,Prof. Francis Igbasan, on the authority of the Senate of McPherson University, admitted all the matriculating students severally as bona fide students of the Institution.

While addressing the matriculants, the Vice-Chancellor charged them to imbibe the culture, values and virtues of the University, and to take their studies seriously.

“Here at McPherson University, “academic success is not an accident, you must work for it, and you must be studious to be the best”, said Prof. Igbasan.

He stated emphatically that McPherson University would not condoned any acts inimical to its well-being as the University has zero tolerance for sexual immorality, drug use and abuse, examination malpractices and other social vices.

Prof. Igbasan further counselled the students to avoid acts that could lead to termination of their studentship abruptly, and be mindful of the kind of company they keep on campus and online as evil communication corrupts good manners.
As a faith-based University, he admonished the matriculants to participate in every spiritual activity organised by the University Chaplaincy from time to time, noting that they should take their relationship with God very seriously.

While rolling out the number of matriculated students across the six colleges in the University, including the Centre for Continuous Education ( Part-Time), the Vice-Chancellor revealed that a total of 551 students were successfully admitted and matriculated at the ceremony, having met the admission registration processes within the stipulated time.

The Vice-Chancellor, while appreciating the parents, guardians and other guests in attendance, hinted that the matriculated figure was an improvement over last year, saying the bar of student enrolment would be raised by next academic session.

The 12th Matriculation Ceremony of McPherson University recorded a huge success as it was well-attended by all relevant stakeholders.
