Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU), Anambra State, has officially announced a change in the date for its 24th Matriculation Ceremony. Initially scheduled for Friday, April 21, 2023, the event will now take place on Saturday, April 22, 2023. This post provides details on the reasons for the date change and its implications for students, parents, and the general public.
The decision to reschedule the Matriculation Ceremony came about due to unofficial information that the Muslim community would be celebrating their Id-el Fitri holiday on April 21, 2023, which coincided with the original date of the event. To accommodate the religious observance, the university decided to move the Matriculation Ceremony to the following day.
Orientation for Freshmen
In light of the change in the Matriculation Ceremony date, the University Orientation for Freshmen will now take place on Thursday, April 20, 2023. The orientation event will be held in both Igbariam and Uli Campuses of the University, providing new students with essential information about their academic journey at COOU.
Roles of Deans of Faculty, Heads of Department, and Matriculating Students
Deans of Faculty and Heads of Department are expected to adapt their plans to the new Matriculation Ceremony date and ensure that all necessary arrangements are in place. Matriculating students should adjust their schedules accordingly, informing their families and friends about the new date for the ceremony.
The change in the date of the 24th Matriculation Ceremony at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) is an important update for newly admitted students, their parents, and the general public. By shifting the event to Saturday, April 22, 2023, the university is making efforts to accommodate the religious observance of the Muslim community while maintaining a smooth transition for new students. Please comply with the new schedule and prepare for a memorable and successful matriculation experience.
