The Beacon


Guild President's Message

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, it is my greatest pleasure to welcome you to Lira University. On behalf of the Students’ fraternity’s, I wish to congratulate each one of you, first for having secured a place and secondly for having a good sense to choose to join in Lira University.

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 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 8:00 am -5: 00 pm.

To all the first year Students who are joining us on the 3rd August 2019 for Academic Year 2019/2020, your arrival here marks 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 like. Now you will be the principal author of the next chapter- you have the temple of your story. This can be seen as daunting as it’s exciting, as challenging as it is empowering. But the great thing is that you are doing something that you have chosen to do, not something that was chosen for you by others. And when you are here at Lira University, you will have the opportunity to learn new things, acquire new knowledge, develop new skills and enhance personal attributes and profound ways that will equip your life after university. At the same time, you will 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.

Once again I would like to thank you for choosing Lira University, a choice that I’m confident you will not regret.

Long live the BEACON

Thank you,

Mr. Otim Dickens.
Guild President, Lira University.
