Speaking on the first day of orientation to welcome freshmen to begin the 2017/2018 academic year, Prof. Eshun called on students to stay focused on their academic objectives by avoiding activities that will jeopardise their education.
He called on students to channel their suggestions and grievances to authorities through the Students Representatives Council (SRC) of the school.
On skills development, Prof. Frank Eshun advised students to take advantage of the mandatory industrial attachment the institution requires them to undergo during their training years.
