The partying mood was on Saturday evening as Victoria University Kampala welcomed new students at a pompous fresher’s ball which was held at Kampala Parents School in Naguru, a Kampala suburb under the theme dynamic duo.
The fresher’s ball started as early as 6pm on a laydown Saturday evening before the energetic students fired it up to hype the tempo and vibe. Food and drinks were on the house to further fine tune the evening. The guild president Maria Peggy Nabunya welcomed the new students to Victoria University.
Namugerwa Sherry, a Bachelor of tourism and hotel management student said she chose Victoria University because it is international and it is not congested with very many students. “I love where it is located, in the middle of the city and academically it is a good university. Lecturers come on time and they never miss lectures,”
“I expect a lot from this University for example during internship, especially for my course, it is easy to get a placement in the Ruparalia Group and Speke Group of Hotels. It is easy to get a job after graduating,” She said.
Placid Mubito, a student from Rwanda, said when he reached at Victoria University, he was emotionally touched by the quality of services provided by the University.
Mubito who is studying Social work and social administration degree said he was inspired to join Victoria University by testimonies from students who have studied from the University.
"Victoria University is going to help me to improve my skills as a social worker because it is what i have been doing in my country Rwanda and here in Uganda. Also, Victoria University reaches out to the community, it is a good place to practice what you learn. The way they teach is motivating.” Mubito said in an interview.
