Friday March 3, 2017 witnessed the 6th Matriculation Ceremony of Federal University, Oye-Ekiti. The students, adorned in their flowing academic gowns, expectantly awaited the solemn and formal induction into their various fields of study.
The Vice Chancellor, Professor Kayode Soremekun, clearly elated at conducting the first matriculation as vice chancellor, advised the new students against social activities that were capable of endangering their academic career.
In his keynote address, the Vice Chancellor hinted that it had been the highest number of admission since the inception of the University, and disclosed that the University was making all efforts to increase and improve the academic facilities in the University. He urged the students to face their studies promptly and begin at this level to build up their grade.
The ebullient don advised the students not to disappoint their parents who had laboured to bring them thus far in life. The highlight of the occasion was the formal induction, by the Registrar of the University, Mr. D. A. Adeyemo, of the students in order of their faculties.
