The Faculty of Social Sciences has unveiled a new coaster bus valued at GH¢ 357, 000 to assist faculty and students carry out field work at a ceremony on campus. Giving a brief statement at the tape cutting ceremony, the Acting Provost of the College of Humanities and Legal Studies, Prof. Stephen B. Kendie, noted that students of the Faculty of Social Sciences took the decision to purchase a bus in 2013 when he was then the Dean.
