“The university is okay don’t worry. Don’t listen to those say like doomsday whatever no the university is good because it is based on the very simple idea that education is no one.” Professor Ismail Simbwa Gyagenda tells IUIU Kampala Campus Students.
“The Moslem countries want this University to prosper. It’s not a Ugandan University, but OIC so 57 countries including Uganda support this University how can it fail. So don’t listen to these say as please.” He added.
After the Juma Prayers on Friday, Professor Ismail Simbwa Gyagenda the Rector of IUIU spoke to students hinting at several issues in their interest. The main issues encouraging them to read their books, what the university is about, and the business path it hopes to per take.
“Mind your books, not any other things but mind your books, if students get a first-class or second upper or more a low it’s okay but don’t get a pass because on the day of the exam it will be you against the paper and you alone. Your girlfriend will not be there your friends and family no one only you and your paper.” Professor Gyagenda told Students.
He encouraged students to mind their studies quoting the different Islamic sceneries and sayings to be their minds at per.
“That’s why they tell us in Islam that mwanadani (grave) they don’t put two people but you by urself and even on the judgment day they will say Nafis by Nasif (soul per soul). Because at the end of the day it’s that transcript that is going to describe who you are, remember that to keep looking at it niecely is when you passed well so mind your studies.” He added.
He also encouraged them to mind so much their attitude as they get all their different professional skills because it’s a one-way ticket to a good personality.
He cited an example of his former university where he got his Ph.D. saying that in one of their first classes, the professor said mind about three things, Attitude, Attitude, Attitude. He went ahead to refer it to the Friday sermon that was about the same topic attitude.
