International Students asked to Contest for Leadership Positions On Campus

International students have been called upon to contest for leadership positions in the University. The Dean of Students Affairs, Prof. Koawo Edjah, who made the call, said there was no law in the University that prevented international students from contesting for electable positions. "...Many a time, I say that the grounds are open for our international students to even contest leadership positions in the University, especially those who come for 8/8," he said, referring to international students who pursue a four-year academic programme in the University." Prof. Edjah was speaking during an annual dinner organised by the Centre for International Education (CIE) for international students of the University to unwind themselves to round off the academic year. The event was also used to reward hardworking foreign students who had excelled in the areas of academics and comported themselves on campus. The Dean of Students,who chaired the occasion, urged them to showcase their cultures in the University, while advising them to respect the rules and regulations governing the University. The Director of CIE, Prof. Rosemond Boohene, advised them to make good friends and build networks on campus. She urged the students to make good use of every golden opportunity in their lives whilst on campus. Prof. Boohene called on the students, especially the final year students, not to turn a blind eye on the Centre in all their endeavours. The Director of Academic Affairs, Mr. Jeff Onyame, charged the students to pursue excellence and take their studies seriously. He encouraged foreign students with a Cumulative Grade Points Average (CGPA) of 3.5 and above not to be complacent, but work assiduously to consolidate their positions and advised other students to redouble their efforts in order to achieve similar heights. The students of the Department of Music and Dance spiced up the occasion with some good music and cultural performance. Present at the function was the Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Prof. G K. T. Oduro, who was the Guest of Honour.
