In addition, adequate provisions should be made for drugs and soothing supplements, suitable for already identified ailment, when coming to campus after the break.To provide better health care, all students are required to print the medical forms sent to their platform, proceed to their nearest Government hospital to carry out all the requisite tests specified. In the course of the session, the University will further arrange to take concerned students to the clinic for the tests as the need may arise.

  1. Campus Life

The campus life since resumption has been a memorable one with varied activities in line with building a total student in character and learning. It is our belief that our students will continue to be shining examples in moral and epitome of academic excellence. As a University that cares, we have keen interest in the overall welfare and wellbeing of our students. 

Other aspects of our campus life is the chapel activities. Through this, the University Community – Staff, Students and well-wishers will jointly worship every Wednesdays, and on Sundays. The students operating their own leadership structure participate in 30mins morning and evening devotion at 6.am and 10.pm each day in their respective hostels. The students themselves take turns to minister to each other’s spiritual and social needs on individual and corporate basis as occasion demands. Students are allowed to formpart of the Chapel system through membership of choir, ushers, dance and drama group, prayer group, discipleship class while others may choose to serve as Sunday school teachers, instrumentalist, etc.

Through these mechanisms, we are certain, our students will minister to the needs of others, exhibit/build their talents and now better prepare themselves to witness and affect other lives.
