The Oke-Ogun Polytechnic Saki (TOPS), a renowned institution for higher education in Nigeria, is set to kick off its Orientation Programme for Fresh Students for the 2022/2023 academic session. The comprehensive and engaging event is scheduled to commence on Monday, 5th June 2023, and conclude on Thursday, 8th June 2023.
Programme Overview and Schedule
The Orientation Programme will be held daily from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM at the New 500 Capacity Hall and Surrounding Premises. This program has been designed to give fresh students an in-depth understanding of TOPS’s culture, ethos, and academic expectations. It also aims to introduce them to the multitude of resources and opportunities available on campus.
A Balance of Orientation and Academics
The university has clarified that the four days of the orientation programme will not be entirely free of lectures and tests. This is in line with TOPS’s commitment to maintain academic continuity even during such events. The period between 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM will be exclusively reserved for the Orientation Programme, allowing students to fully immerse themselves in the activities planned.
However, fresh students are expected to attend classes between 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM. This decision ensures a balance between academics and orientation activities, enabling students to transition smoothly into their academic life at TOPS.
A Word on Attendance
Attendance at the Orientation Programme is not just encouraged but expected. TOPS believes in the importance of an orientation programme for its freshmen, as it serves as a crucial step in acclimating to the polytechnic’s culture and expectations. Missing out on this experience could mean missing out on important information, opportunities, and the chance to start building relationships with fellow students and faculty.
The TOPS community eagerly awaits the arrival of its new members. As fresh students embark on this exciting journey, the Orientation Programme is their first step towards a successful and fulfilling academic experience at The Oke-Ogun Polytechnic Saki.
