Not less than one hundred and forty-eight students were sworn in by the mgt of Chrisland University, Abeokuta at a basic matriculation ceremony to kick-start the 2019/ 2020 academic session.
The students, who were sworn-in at a zoom meeting which had over three hundred and fifty students, were acknowledged into three colleges; College of Basic Medical Science, College of Management and Social Sciences; College of Natural and Applied Sciences.
Speaking at the 5th matriculation ceremony, the VC, Prof Babalola Chinedum, said that coronavirus pandemic was disrupted the ceremony which was initially scheduled to March.
Chinedum, further, said the Chrisland university was able to revise to the new normal because of its obligation to becoming an Information Technology-driven tertiary institution.
Prof Babalola Chinedum added, “This matriculation was scheduled to March, our usual matriculation term, but alas, it was disrupted by 4 months.
“Indeed, this is our year and session of New Things/New starting of Chrisland University. You will remember that we termed this session, the year of New Beginning. I did remark that we will change the ways of doing things at our University including the fact that technology will speak for us this session. Without realizing it, coronavirus has almost brought our education to the e-learning mode.”
