Education is preparation for lifetime of learning, says VC

Multimedia University of Kenya Vice Chancellor Amb. Prof. Festus Kaberia has challenged students to look at education not only as a career preparation activity but a lifetime learning process that will help them gain numerous life enriching experiences.

Speaking during the orientation exercise for new students, the VC said educational experience is enriched through interactions with people who have different lifestyles, education background and cultural experiences which all act as a catalyst to learning, discovery and innovation.

“Indeed, our differences in exposure should help you to enjoy learning and develop yourselves into a more knowledgeable, better skilled person who will be emotionally intelligent by the time you complete your university degrees,” said the VC.

He also urged the students to participate in various co-curriculum activities such as clubs, sports and student leadership adding that taking part in these exercises will enable them to stay healthy and also make them holistic graduate by the time they complete their studies at the University.
