Classes kick off effectively at the Catholic University Institute of Buea few days after freshmen marked present at the CUIB main and satellite campuses in Buea and Douala respectively on October 16, with much enthusiasm to gain professional knowledge.
Both freshmen and returning students are determined to write their names in the book of success this academic year as they could be seen demonstrating acts of collaboration and class interaction with lecturers and mates.
On their part, lecturers have taken up their responsibility in encouraging these students and helping them become at their best as they study in CUIB- the Cradle of entrepreneurship and innovation.
Incorporating mobile and ubiquitous learning in the process, it is worth mentioning that students have become part and parcel of this newly introduced method of teaching and learning as they could be spotted following lectures online in the Douala satellite campus as onsite lectures unfolded at the Buea main campus. This new move by the university to blend both online and onsite teaching and learning is a gesture aimed at bringing education to the comfort zones of its students for better flexibility.
As classes continue at CUIB, students look forward to take part in one of the university’s flagship traditions which is the elections of students into the Student Government Association -STUGA. This activity will be characterized by student’s campaigns and debates that sets the pace for voting’s to put in power those they find worthy of being their liaison between management and students, to protect their interest and that of the university at large.
While management on their part ensures the smooth running of the 2018-2019 academic year faculty, staff and students are determined to produce excellence as they see this as a virtue of the University that must not be compromised.
