Prof Nunoo: In the quest to provide conducive learning environment to its members, the leadership of Graduate Students Association of Ghana (GRASAG) - Legon has refurbished the reading room at Akuafo Annex D which accommodates graduate students.
The facility refurbished at a total cost of GH₵15, 709.00 was opened to students for use on Monday, 13th March, 2017.
In a welcome address at a brief ceremony to officially open the facility, the President of GRASAG-Legon, Mr Nana Kwame Asafo-Agyei reiterated his commitment to ensuring that graduate students fulfil their core mandates as students, thus to learn and do research in comfortable and siren environments.
To this end, he indicated that his administration had organised series of workshops, seminars and training sessions, all in the quest to equip students with requisite knowledge and skills in order to undertake their graduate studies successfully.
He noted that, similar projects will be extended to graduate campuses of the University of Ghana- Korle-Bu and Atomic campuses.
The Dean of Graduate Studies, Professor Tano Debrah commended the leadership of GRASAG for taking the initiative to renovate their reading room, saying this is an indication that students’ monies are put to good use.
He added that this facility will add to existing resources which students can use to produce quality thesis and research works to meet the standard of the University.
On his part, the Dean of Students, Prof Nunoo called on graduate students to participate in the activities of the Students' Representative Council (SRC).
He said the University has only one student's council and all graduate students are part of it.
He added that although the current constitution of the SRC prohibits graduate students from contesting, he wants to see graduate students involve at different levels in the upcoming SRC elections.
Speaking on behalf of the Hall Management, the Senior Tutor of the Akuafo Hall, Dr. Von revealed that the whole block will be given to graduate students starting from next academic year.
He called on students to maintain the facility.
