The statistics represent 43 percent increase in students enrollment figures this academic year.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Ben Quarshie Honyenuga, who disclosed this at the University’s 28th matriculation ceremony, said the increment is due to the intake of the Free SHS graduates and outreach programmes.
He assured the new students that the University has facilities and qualified faculty and staff to support their training to be meaningful citizens.
Prof Honyenuga however cautioned the new students against breaking the University’s rules and the laws of the country on campus saying that they will be penalized when caught.
He stated that lecturers have been empowered to sanction students for indecent dressing and misconduct.
Management of the University has instituted stringent measures to ensure that students adhere to Covid-19 protocols to prevent it spread on campus.
