It is an academic tradition in many Institutions of Higher learning to list students on the Vice Chancellor list. These “academic giants” get themselves listed in recognition for their outstanding performance.
While this tradition could go unnoticed and not felt by the students as a motivation factor for many Institutions, Victoria University brings the tradition to vibrancy by hosting the students to a dinner every semester.
This April, the 44 students that accessed this prestigious honor in the previous semester have been hosted to a special dinner at La Paroni restaurant along Parliamentary Avenue.
The students were treated to a dinner and presented with a Certificate of Achievement in recognition of their academic achievement. This was on Saturday 6th April 2019; a day that has gone down in the annals of our University and will always be cherished by the beneficiaries.
In attendance were the Deans of various Faculties and the Academic Registrar who took turns in encouraging the students to pursue academics with seriousness and keep their performance high always.
In his words the Vice Chancellor – Assoc. Prof Krishna N. Sharma, encouraged students, reminding them that education should be able to transform the mind and grow in every individual unique ability to enable them succeed in life.
As a university, emphasis on experiential learning is not accidental but rather cautious since the world tomorrow shall require dynamic and flexible citizens ready to solve the challenges of the day case by case.
He reflected on the University motto, Come prepared to learn, Leave prepared to succeed urging students to always aim high in both academic and social spheres of life.
This celebration is held semester wise as a University tradition. It is hosted by the Vice Chancellor’s office in honor of the best performing students with GPA of 4.4 and above.
