March 3, 2023. The 21st matriculation of all L100 students of the African University College of Communications (AUCC) took place on Friday, March 3, to formally induct the students into the institution. The two-hour program welcomed 379 new students, comprising 213 Bachelor of Art in Communication Studies, 157 Bachelor of Art in Business Administration, and nine students for Diploma in Management Studies. The total figure includes 20 foreign students from Liberia, Benin, Guinea, and Nigeria.

Professor Abeku Blankson, President of the African University College of Communications (AUCC), urged students to contribute positively to change in society for the general wellbeing of citizens of the country. He said students should learn to volunteer in community labor activities to  enhance good neighborliness and civic responsibilities.

He urged the students to develop entrepreneurial mindsets to establish businesses on their own.

Dr Richmond Acquah-Coleman, the Director of Student Affairs and Counsellor, AUCC, said the Matriculation set the tone for the rest of the students’ academic career, stressing on the importance to build a strong academic foundation and co-curricular activities to enable them to excel. He advised them to prioritize their mental health as they would be facing “stressors and challenges in their academic activities.”

“As your Director of Student Affairs and Students Counsellor, I am here to support you throughout your academic journey, through guidance, advise and listening ear,” he assured.

The University, as part of its 20th anniversary celebration, outdoored its eight Strategic Plan Vision, to be accomplished by 2027. One of these is “Student Centredness”, to see students as true participants in the day-to-day running of the institution.

On behalf of the students, Ms Mwinteroo Diyouh, who represented Upper West at the Ghana’s Most Beautiful TV reality show, called on the school authority to assist students with entrepreneurial programs before completion.

Hitz FM collaborated with Ghana’s number one campus-based Radio Station AfroNova to provide entertainment after the matriculation.
