The Vice Chancellor of the Cross River University of Technology, now the University of Cross River State, Professor Augustine Oko Angba, has cautioned students of the University against indulging in unlawful associations. He gave the injunction during the 19th Matriculation ceremony of the institution and admonished the new intakes to eschew cultism, exam malpractice and other forms of social vices, so as not to truncate their targeted academic dreams and desired glory. He also charged them to conceive the matriculation event "as an initiation into an Ivory Tower", where "intellect is horned, ignorance replaced with knowledge and men and women turned into people of impeccable character..." He further implored the students to remain focused and resilient, asserting that "education is a choice" that cannot be forced on anybody and that "if you are determined to learn, nobody can stop you".
The VC, whose cardinal focus is research and infrastructural development, promised to foster a conducive learning environment, uphold the culture of excellence which is peculiar to the institution and to reward well-behaved students. He urged all and sundry to join in enthroning an enduring CRUTECH/UNICROSS legacy.
The ceremony, which took place across all the University Campuses of Calabar, Obubra, Ogoja and Okuku, marked the formal admission of 6,342 freshmen into the various Faculties and Departments of the University.
High point of the ceremony was the formal oath taking by the new students, which was administered by the Registrar of the University, Mr. Victor Ephraim Ene as well as the formal acceptance of the students, into the membership of the University, by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Augustine Oko Angba.
