Students are reminded that the University is governed by a set of rules and regulations which must be complied with by all. Students cannot choose when to return to campus in a disciplined University society.
Parents are strongly advised not to condone this act of indiscipline by their children/wards, but to give the University Management maximum cooperation in enforcing compliance with the University rules and regulations.
Furthermore, all members of staff and students are to note that the Management is favourably disposed to the formation of non-academic/social associations.
Interested members of staff and students are, therefore, hereby advised to obtain from the Students Affairs Office the prescribed form for the registration of such associations.
