Students against substance abuse

During an event organized by University of Nairobi Anti-drugs and Substance Abuse Campaign (UNADSAC) and Organization of Nairobi University Science Students (ONUSS), students were challenged to take a stand against drug and substance abuse. In line with the theme ‘No drug formed against you shall prosper but the choice is yours,’ the students were taken through inspirational exercises by various speakers.

One of the presenters, Dr. S.K. Moindi shared his personal struggles with alcohol and how he took control of his life, emerging victorious. He noted that the greatest rehab is in the mind, as he testified to have quit the habit voluntarily, after witnessing the pertinent demise of his colleagues in the vice. Dr. Moindi is from the School of Mathematics.

During the just concluded Inter-University Council for East Africa (IUCEA) exhibition 2013, the University of Nairobi (UoN) had an opportunity to show case its programmes and services to the members of public.

The forum is significant to the University as it aims to provide a convergence platform for the academia and the private sector, through engagement with the public sector, for discussing and strategizing on effective mechanisms for promoting academia and private sector partnership in East Africa, for sustained socio-economic development and regional integration.

University of Nairobi Anthem

University of Nairobi we labour all together in search for

knowledge and truth.

We bless and honour Thee, we are the pinnacle of

excellence in knowledge,

Knowledge to serve our mother-land (oh Kenya), knowledge

to serve all mankind

 

Be not engulfed by pride, let excellence prevail

May we all shun the pitfall, of being the ivory tower

With sacrifice and dedication our problems we’ll overcome

 

We are the fountain of knowledge we create and hold the

vision

God gives us grace to serve, and the future for us is bright,

and the children

Shall drink from the fountain of knowledge, knowledge

Shall surely set us free (beyond the stars) knowledge shall

surely set them free.

 

Google Ambassadors launch Google Clubs

In a fun-filled event dubbed G-Student Club Meet-Up, the first ever Google Club was launched at the University of Nairobi by the Google Students Ambassadors (GSAs). During the launch, at the 8-4-4 Multipurpose Hall, Main Campus, the GSAs took the participants through the various Google Apps for education available to students.

The Google Student Ambassador Program is an opportunity for students to act as liaisons between Google and their universities. Google Student Ambassadors are given a unique opportunity to serve as liaisons between Google and their university for the duration of one academic year, holding workshops, training and events with their campus community around Google’s core products, programs and initiatives. The team consisting of Stephen Mudibo, from the School of Law, Michelle Ngure and Geoffrey Mosongo, both from the Department of Electrical and Information Engineering is the third team of Ambassadors in the University.
