Daystar University Orientation, On Friday 24th August 2018, the Daystar University Students Association hosted new students to the Freshmen dinner at the Athi River Campus Amphitheatre. The event marked the peak of the orientation week which ended on Saturday with team building activities at the Freedom Base led by Doulos team.
At least 226 freshmen from both Athi River and Nairobi Campus had the opportunity to share their experiences over a meal.
In attendance was the Ag. Vice-Chancellor Prof. James Kombo and Mrs. Pamela Kombo, Daystar Co-founders Dr. and Mrs. Donald Smith, Dean of Students Rev. Mutinda Musyimi, Associate Dean Ms. Irene Kimani and DUSA representatives from both campuses.
The Ag. VC Prof. Kombo reminded the freshmen that they had made the right choice to join Daystar. The Dean of Students Rev. Mutinda Musyimi told the freshmen that they were the hope of Africa, further encouraging them to utilize their time effectively by appreciating the small things they do.
“Your time is limited, so do not waste it by living someone else’s life. Also, do not let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your inner voice. This calls for self-control and a sound mind. If you cannot do the little things right while here at Daystar, you will never do the big things right,” he stated.
He further emphasized on students thinking global while remaining the change that Africa so needs.
“You are the catalyst to a prosperous Africa; an Africa that is based on inclusive growth and sustainable development: an integrated continent, politically united. An Africa where development is people-driven, unleashing the potential of its women and youth,” said Rev. Musyimi.
The most outstanding freshmen, best dressed male and female and the most outgoing were awarded.
