Prof. Amund reminded the matriculating students that the distance between matriculation and convocation was wide, adding that determination and seriousness were required to end well.

He urged them to make the most use of the various modern facilities that the University has provided for their academic development.
The Vice-Chancellor congratulated the matriculating students and their parents and promised the continued support of the University for them. A total of 300 students took the matriculation oath.
