The African University College of Communication (AUCC), an affiliate of the University of Ghana and other international universities, has held its 4th Matriculation for 220 freshers admitted in January.

The event, which took place over the weekend at the forecourt of the university ? also referred to as ?Discovery House? ? in Accra, brought together parents of the matriculants, friends, among other guests.

The AUCC was founded in 2002 by Mr. Kojo Yankah with an initial enrolment of 30 students and has increased steadily over the years to 1,559 in 2014.

The institution, in 2004 received accreditation from the National Accreditation Board (NAB) to operate as a recognized tertiary institution, and had approval in 2010 to offer Bachelor of Arts and Sciences in Business Administration degrees.

The Acting President of the institution, Prof.Kwaku Armah, in a welcoming address, said the AUCC had set itself to offer holistic tertiary education which was expected to turn out students who would be capable of identifying and solving problems to impact positively on the rest of society.

He stressed that the hopes and aspirations of the individual students in the light of what the varsity aims to achieve, would depend on the level of cooperation from students to comply with the set norms and practices.

The CEO of Lunchpad, Mr. Richard Akita, said the greatest test of leadership is to recognize problems or possible challenges, put structures in place to solve them before they become emergency cases.

He noted that the current generation of youth hunger for spirituality and social justice, but the development of the later helps to strengthen the former.

The CEO mentioned that AUCC core values ? pursuit of excellence, critical and independent thinking, creativity and innovations, respect for African cultural values and service to the community ? were more than enough virtues to produce graduates who should transform the image of the country.

Mr. Richard Akita urged the freshers to resist the temptation to exploit society with their writings and work hard to make the country a better place for all.
