New students began to arrive on campus on August 27 and by the next day proceeded to the Commencement Hall for registration formalities.
More than 100 students checked in on the first day of the weeklong orientation exercise.
The newcomers found the AUN campus welcoming as the ever-cheerful staff and student volunteers were on ground to receive them. For many of the new arrivals, their first AUN impressions started with student volunteers at the Yola Airport.
Chiamaka Elezianya, who graduated from Capital Science Academy, Abuja, believes that coming to AUN is the beginning of her life ambition to be a chief judge. The young lady from Imo State has lawyer parents.
"When you are studying Law, it is the best option for you to study in your country and AUN happens to be the best choice for me because of its serene/conducive learning environment, infrastructures, and facilities."
Efezino Onyeke from Delta State attended Chrisland High School, Ikeja, Lagos. She also wants to study Law. She knew about AUN right from her days in high school.
Deciding that AUN was the place to have her tertiary education was not difficult as she has an older sibling already studying at AUN. The acclaimed teaching standard, infrastructural facilities, and the great students' life are among her reasons to come.
For Simon Evans from Taraba State, schooling abroad was his initial desire. The graduate of Royal Comprehensive High School, Jalingo, said he had a rethink to settle for AUN because of its American style of teaching. Besides, AUN's proximity to his hometown was another advantage.
As for Chidere Enwerem, another student from Imo State and graduate of Caleb British International School, Lagos, she was encouraged by what she heard about AUN. She got to know about AUN from her sister who studies here. Her life ambition is to become a renowned software engineer/community developer rendering humanitarian services to society.
