Hello ladies and gentlemen, it is my great pleasure to welcome you to Lira university. On behalf of the students’ fraternity, I wish to congratulate each one of you, first for having secured a place at Lira university and secondly for having a good sense to choose to join Lira university the BEACON center of applied sciences.
Lira university puts students at the center of everything it does; your experience and success is important to each and every member of the staff that works here.
We have in place a fully-fledged Guild government constituted by the Guild Representative Council(GRC) and the Executives headed by the Guild President. We have Guild Speaker, Vice Guild President, Prime Minister among other Executives; this Guild government is democratically elected and dedicated to serve the students. The guild office is active from Monday to Sunday for both week day and weekend students from 8:00am-5:00pm.
To all the first year students who joined us on the 6th December, 2021 for academic year 2021/2022, your arrival in the University marked a new chapter in the story of your life. But this chapter is a bit different. The proceeding chapters were largely written by either your parents, guardians, families, teachers or the likes. Now you will be the principle author of the next chapter, you have the temple of your story. This can be seen as daunting as its exciting, as challenging as its empowering. but the great thing is that you are doing something that you have chosen for yourself not by others. And when you are here at Lira university, you will have the opportunity to learn new things, acquire new knowledge, develop skills and enhance personal attributes and profound ways that will equip your life after university every time a group of people come together, they need to choose what to do and when to do it, so if you know how to unify a group and make quick decisions without conflicts, you will be incredibly valuable because you will have exhibited leadership skills, you might assume that strong leadership is only essential when you are managing people, but this is important for your success even when you are most junior person on the team so as students you are encouraged to make new friends who will become your friends for life, with whom you will share memories of your university days for many years to come.
Believe in yourself, be genuine, maintain your integrity, don’t sell your dignity, stay focused, we can also make it and contribute much and be influential in the development of our villages, parishes, sub counties, constituencies, districts, countries and the world at large.
