At a town hall meeting of the SGA on September 23, President of the student body, Idris Mamman, announced that Quest, an online entertainment platform on campus, is back.
The meeting was an avenue for students to raise their issues and get clarifications on how the school management was solving them.
At the start of the forum, Mamman announced his achievements, including the success of the #BringBackQuest campaign.
From this platform, which is hosted on the University’s intranet, students can stream and download the latest videos, music or movies. Dooyum Malu, an alumnus who worked with the University before getting a job with Google Inc., the internet giants based in California, created the platform. “I have been speaking with the alum. I was able to convince him to fix it and it came alive today,” President Mamman announced.
Mr. Mamman said the SGA is now working to get an access code, which will make Quest a property of the Association. He added that the SGA would also host a competition for tech-savvy students to develop an improved or new version of Quest. The winner will earn a prize and get mentorship and support from Mr. Malu.
Mamman also announced that the SGA mobile application he promised during his election campaign six months ago is under development. It will have numerous features aimed at making the campus life experience more enriching. He is hopeful that the mobile app will be operational before the end of the semester.
“I promised students a mobile application that will bridge the gap between students and the SGA. Today, I stand here again to tell you that that dream is becoming a reality.”
Mamman assured students that the SGA is working with the school's management to ensure that AUN students can be consulted when decisions concerning them are being made.
