Oau Matriculates In Great Pomp & Buzzing Excitement
Fresh students of the Obafemi Awolowo university have finally been matriculated into the institution, earlier today 1st September, 2016. The events of the matriculation ceremony took place at the famous OAU Amphitheater, after which students proceeded to the beautiful scenes of the motion ground to take photographs and enjoy the atmosphere.
Clad in navy blue gowns with gold rings on the sleeves and hats of the same colour, the fresh students buzzed with excitement as they trooped from their various halls of residence towards the gigantic amphitheatre, where the same events were repeated for batch by batch of students, classified by faculty. Fresh students of the faculty of Arts were the first to be matriculated, sealed with the signing of the Oath form, and swearing to uphold the tenets of the institution.
After the events, each batch of delighted Students departed the amphitheatre in single files, and out into the arms of colourfully dressed parents,friends, and well-wishers, all over the motion ground and all around the university campus, with Photographers making the most of the opportunity to make several times more than they would make normally. With beautiful props and banners waiting, it was a festival of camera light flashes.
The freshly matriculated students are students admitted for the 2015/2016 session.
