UNILAG To Begin 50th Convocation Ceremonies On Feb 19th

The University of Lagos (UNILAG) says it will begin its 50th convocation ceremonies for the 2016/2017 academic session on February 19.

The institution’s Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe, disclosed this on the sidelines of the yearly interaction with newsmen, on Tuesday, in Lagos.

He, however, said the four-day convocation activities which would end on February 22 would be slightly adjusted, and would be different from those of the past.

“This time, we will make a few changes and introduce a few items to make the ceremonies lively and memorable.

“For instance, the convocation venue will move from the usual multi-purpose hall known as Jelili Omotola Hall to the main auditorium known as Ade Ajayi Hall.

“But we will soon come up with a line-up of events to kick-start the convocation.

“The events normally begin with a convocation media briefing, followed by the convocation lecture, among others,’’ the vice-chancellor said.

Ogundipe explained that the university management would also ensure a rebranding of the institution, especially in the area of research, innovation, incubation and entrepreneurship.
