Students of UNILAK- Kigali Campus are urged to strive to be the best and grab all opportunities outside there for hard workers.
“Do not be reluctant in everything you do, dream big and try to be the best, help each other and we will always be there for you for any assistance you might need;” said Dr. Ngamije Jean, the Vice Chancellor of UNILAK, at the closing ceremony of Induction Week.
The Induction week closing ceremony took place at UNILAK Kigali Campus on October 18th, 2019 under the theme “the role of University students in shaping the Rwanda we want”.
New students were warmly welcomed by the management of the institutions, lecturers as well as their fellow students.
The National Coordinator of Intagamburuzwa, in his speech emphasized on Ndi Umunyarwanda values, where he told students to be united, and to have that strong spirit of patriotism.
Behind being best performers in their courses, new comers were also encouraged to be role models in the community.
“When we say Rwanda we want, we are saying development in all sectors, self reliant people, and you are one of the best partners in these activities. You must be good role models in your surrounding community and help your country to develop. Use the knowledge you get from here to serve your country,” said Lt Col. Migambi Mungamba Desire, deputy chairman of National Itorero Commission who was also the guest of honor.
During the ceremony, the new comers presented their pledges to the Vice Chancellor and signed them.
They have pledged to assist needy people through giving health insurances, rehabilitating houses, and supporting their fellow students who are unable to find the tuition fees.
On the side of UNILAK, the management promised to assist them in fulfilling their commitment.
The induction week is a yearly tradition at UNILAK. It aims to settle down new students and impart them with Rwandan values to enable them to make the most of their University experience and be part of Intagamburuzwamumihigo za UNILAK.
