CHUSS Freshers Asked to Focus on Academics and Desist from Engaging in Politics and Rioting


Hundreds of freshmen and women admitted to undergraduate programmers in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) for the academic year 2023/2024 on Friday 25th August 2023 converged at the Arts Quadrangle for orientation.

University officials including members of the CHUSS management and university units including Security, Counselling and Guidance, the Library and Gender Mainstreaming unit and the students’ Guild addressed students on university policies, rules and regulations.

In addition to furnishing students with information on academic life such as admission, fees payment and registration, the University academic calendar and change of program, freshers were advised on a number of issues pertaining to their social life, personal security and the general conduct while at the university.

The freshers were also cautioned against examination malpractices, engaging in strikes, drug abuse and sexual harassment among others that would put their lives and studies at stake.

Addressing the students, the Principal CHUSS Professor Josephine Ahikire welcomed and congratulated the first years upon joining the CHUSS family.
Prof. Ahikire described CHUSS as a unique college that has opened the world to the students in terms of disciplines that are offered across the five schools including social sciences, gender studies, philosophy, history, journalism, performing arts and languages and literature.

“All that is a rich menu that offers you, even if you are taking one course, you can take even an audit course to enrich your experience and also widen your perspective”. She said
