Elizade University matriculates 532 students

The Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin in Ifedore Local Government Area of Ondo State, has matriculated 532 students into various degree courses in the university for 2023/ 2024 academic year .

The matriculation ceremony held at the university ground at the weekend was the institution’s 12th edition, with 468 undergraduates and 64 postgraduate students.

Speaking during the matriculation, the Vice Chancellor of the University, Prof Kayode Ijadunola warned the new students against engaging in any form of anti-social behaviours including cultism.

He said the management of the school would hesitate to hand over any student who engages in criminal activities to law enforcement agencies.

Ijadunola who encouraged all the students to face their primary assignment in the school noted that not all the matriculating students end up graduating from the same institution for a myriad of reasons especially anti-social vices which may terminate their career.

He said “Do not engage in ego tripping and entitlement behaviours when interacting with your instructors, as many of our youngsters tend to do today.

“This is not a lawless society, as there will be sanctions for deliberate acts of breach of others’ rights. You can be sure that you will also be treated decently and with dignity by all and sundry.

” Please, do not engage in acts that will constitute a breach of the oath you are about to take today because that is a sure way of exiting the University prematurely”

“The University has zero tolerance for anti-social behaviour – cultism, illicit drug use/abuse, examination malpractice, physical violence, sexual violence, sexual harassment, sexual assault, rape, sexual immorality, indecent dressing, and sundry issues.

”These will constitute a breach of your matriculation oath and may earn you an expulsion from the University. If such acts are also criminal, that may bring you in contact with the criminal justice system.

“That will not only cut short your dreams and aspirations in life but may also bring the image of the University and those of your families into disrepute. Please, be properly advised and informed, as ignorance will not be an excuse,” he said

The VC said all these courses, are fully accredited by the National University Commission (NUC) and other regulatory agencies.
