The University of Lagos on Friday held its matriculation ceremony for the 2014/2015 session, in which 6,644 freshmen were welcomed to the institution.


At the ceremony, which took place at the university?s multi-purpose hall, the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Rahman Bello, noted that the students were selected from an initial number of 51,931 UTME and 4,316 Direct Entry applicants.

He noted that a total of 8,601 were offered provisional admission before the number was slashed to the present figure.

In all, 662 students matriculated in the Faculty of Arts, 1,002 in Business Administration, 907 in Education, 675 in Engineering, 368 in Environmental Sciences, 465 in Law, 1,089 in Science, 879 in Social Sciences, 179 in Pharmacy, and 418 in the College of Medicine.

Bello congratulated the students on making it through the screening process, urging them to strive for excellence throughout their stay in the citadel of learning.

He said, ?I congratulate you all and through you, your parents, on being lucky to make it through the selection process through, with which you have become undergraduates of the highly prestigious University of Lagos.

?There are only 6,644 of you, representing about 10 per cent of the total number of applicants who have fully scaled the registration procedure and who from this day have become bonafide students of the University of Lagos.

?Gaining admission into the over 50-year-old UNILAG is not only noble but also glorious. It the first step of the journey that would determine your future. It requires determination, diligence, focus and resilience.

?I wish to encourage you all to work hard and distinguish yourselves in your academics. I urge you to aspire to be a UNILAG scholar.?

Meanwhile, the VC announced that the 10-year ban on student unionism had been lifted, adding that elections would soon commence to choose student representatives.

Bello noted that the lifting of the ban became imperative after it became apparent that students had learnt from the violence that led to the ban in 2005.
