Five AUN partner schools from Kaduna and Bauchi states visited the campus during the 11th Commencement.
The school reps were invited during such a significant period as the Commencement Ceremony, so they could experience the institution’s quality firsthand. During their stay, they toured the campus and observed the quality of learning facilities on the ground, housing for students, and the caliber of faculty that sets AUN apart from other universities.
These secondary schools were chosen for their high academic and moral standing. From Kaduna came Rare Gem Academy, represented by Funmi Familugba; Danbo International College, represented by Osayemwenre Aimufua; Gray’s International College, represented by Gabson Ayinde Adebudu; and Betty Queen International School, which was represented by Beatrice Oyeshola. Sunshine International School, Bauchi, was represented by Tope Omoniyi.
The school reps were received by Vice President Abba Tahir along with the staff of University Relations and Admissions Offices in a meet-and-greet session held at the Dr. Jennifer Abubakar Building. The VPUR ran the visitors through AUN’s academic activities, including the various schools, programs, faculty profile, and curricula. He also explained campus life at AUN including the co-curricular benefits students enjoy on enrollment.
“We are extending our hand of friendship to schools like yours which could facilitate the enrolment of students to our university. However, we are not looking for just any students; we are looking for outstanding students.
The Senior Director of PR and Marketing, Yusuf Mohammed shed more light on what AUN’s expectations are when it comes to the quality of students to be enrolled.
“We are targeting excellent students of good character from schools like yours which we have already seen during our visits to your respective schools.”
Mr. Yusuf also assured the reps that the emerging partnership will be a mutually rewarding one to all parties involved as AUN will provide them feedback on the performance of their students, ensure a smooth transition from the secondary schools into AUN, and in addition, these partner schools become somewhat liaisons for AUN.
The reps who were highly impressed with what they saw on campus, commended AUN for its academic quality and rich campus life and welcomed the idea of a partnership as ‘mutually beneficial’.
