Flee Occultism – Students Told

Professor Frank John Eshun, Rector of the Takoradi Polytechnic (T-Poly) has implored fresh students admitted into the institution to flee occultism, drug abuse and sexual promiscuity.

According to him, those practices were inimical to students’ development and could result in their dismissal from the Polytechnic.

‘Do not be lured into taking alcohol and drugs or partaking in other social vices; these will ruin your academic future and dreams. Be self-disciplined and keep the good name and image of the polytechnic high’, he added.

The Rector also called on students to eschew laziness and other negative tendencies that would prevent them from getting the best out of their education.

‘I will not expect students of this great polytechnic to behave in a manner that will bring the name of the institution into disrepute’, he stressed.

Professor Eshun said this when he officially admitted 2,302 fresh students to pursue various Degree and Higher National Diploma(HND) programmes at the Polytechnic.

The formal induction into the Polytechnic would also offer them unique opportunity to be recognized as future alumni of the school as well as enjoy all rights and privileges of the premier academic institution.

The Polytechnic received 3,950 applications for the 2015/2016 academic year out of which 2,975 were offered admission, however, only 2,302 enrolled for the academic year.

He mentioned that the semester system operated by the Polytechnic was very challenging and required consistent work, regular attendance to lectures and the completion of all continuous assessment given to them.

The Rector of the Polytechnic urged the students to put academic work first in all their priorities and strive to set high academic and moral standards for themselves.

He indicated that the freedom that came with tertiary education must rather be used to their advantage rather than wasting time on unprofitable ventures.

Professor Eshun said the Polytechnic operated an open policy and called on them to use appropriate channels in resolving issues.
