Uncle Rich Senior High School students visit UPSA
Thirty students and staff from Uncle Rich Senior High School in Winneba have paid a visit to the campus of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) to familiarize themselves with some of the key facilities of the University.
The visit was to foster an unflinching ambition among the students to work hard to gain admission into the University and become successful in the future.
The tour began with a visit to the Joshua Alabi Library where the students were awed by the size of the library and the number of books available.
Mr. Steven Tagoe, an Assistant Registrar at the library, took the students through the basic rules of the library, the books available at the library, the digital library system, and how students can access information on the internet for research.
Thrilled by what they saw at the library, the students were then taken to the UPSA auditorium where they were fascinated by the architectural beauty and some of the famous speakers and performers who have graced the stage over the years.
The students took turns to deliver speeches and perform on the stage to boost their confidence and ambition to work hard to make their dreams a reality.
The next stop was a tour of the university’s state-of-the-art sports facilities such as the astroturf, basketball, handball, and tennis courts.
The students were taught that sports play an integral role in fostering teamwork, discipline, and healthy competition.
The tour concluded with a visit to the Graduate School block where Mr. Denis Attuquayefio a Senior Assistant Registrar from the Academic Affairs Department took the students through some academic requirements for the University, the courses available at UPSA and the care prospects available for the students.
Deputy Director of the Public Affairs Directorate, Miss Ivy Heward-Mills expressed her delight for the visit and thanked the students for choosing UPSA, adding that “you have made the right choice by coming to UPSA.”
She encouraged the students to study hard and pass their WASSCE exams in order to make it to UPSA to further their studies, stressing that UPSA has courses that will give them a competitive advantage to fulfill their career objectives.
The students were accompanied by four of their teachers, namely Mr Patrick Asamoah, Akutoh Lucy, Dorothy Dompreh Asante and Ruth Eliam.
