ONGWEDIVA, 21 MAY (NAMPA) – The Students’ Representative Council (SRC) of the International University of Management (IUM)’s Ongwediva campus on Tuesday hosted a students’ inspirational night to promote commitment and discipline amongst students at the institution.
“A motivated and well-disciplined student is likely to achieve high academic performance,” the secretary-general of the IUM's SRC, Hendrik Theofelus, said while speaking at the beginning of the gathering.
Chairperson of the Namibia Chamber of Commerce and Industry (NCCI) Northern Branch, Tomas Iindji was the keynote speaker at the event.
He said Namibia's future economic heroes and heroines should come from the IUM Ongwediva Campus, adding that the campus would only produce quality professionals if its students take their education seriously.
Iindji also wants to see the IUM Ongwediva campus students working hard during their studies and after graduating from the institution.
“Do not rush – you will crash,” he told the students, while on the other hand urging them to take all their endeavours one step at a time.
The NCCI Northern Branch chairperson used the same platform to call on the IUM students to appreciate the sacrifices of their parents in availing the means for them to be able to study.
“Let us thank our parents for sacrificing their resources in order to send you to IUM for further studies, despite the fact that many of them never had the opportunity to undergo tertiary education like you here,” Iindji cited.
Other speakers, including the IUM’s humanity lecturer Maria Atejioye, encouraged the students to be visionaries with purpose-driven personalities before and after completing their studies.
“I want to see you shining in Namibia and transform what you learn here into action after graduating from this institution,” urged Atejioye.
