Graduands at the ceremony.

The ceremony drew graduands from the Colleges of Agriculture and Veterinary Sciences, Architecture and Engineering, Biological and Physical Sciences and Education and External Studies. In addition, School of Law and School of Nursing.

Dr. Rattansi celebrated the great achievements of the graduands. Drawing from the wise thoughts of Theodore Roosevelt and William Ernest Henley, Dr. Rattansi shared words of wisdom and caution to the graduating class of 2017.

“Graduates we send you into the world as our ambassadors. We, your forbearers may have fallen short of being the perfect role models. Be better than us. Heed the word of the scriptures that you may not be corrupted or conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect” she said. “You will be faced with many odds including those hell bent on keeping you down, stifling your growth, stealing your thunder and extinguishing your candle that theirs may appear brighter. In light of all these, never lose hope, never despair and certainly light yourself another candle! Sometimes you will succeed and sometimes you will fail.”

The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Peter Mbithi also congratulated the graduands.

“Graduation is a culmination of hard work and sacrifices by the graduands, parents, sponsors and staff of the University. It is a special moment for members of the university community to celebrate with pride the unleashing of new entrepreneurs, employees and talent into the market,” he said.  “Every generation has a unique historical moment to make a significant contribution to the human civilization and survival of mankind and this is the time for the millennial generation.”
