The importance of right and adequate information cannot be overemphasized most especially when fresh students are coming into a new academic environment. There is absolute need to pay attention to details right from the first day, the way you start will probably determine how you will end. Active involvement in all class room works, tutorials, practicals, tests, examinations and other continuous assessments is paramount to your success in this department. The sky is your limit if you can take responsibility for your actions. I would also like to use this opportunity to wish you the most successful academic period in this Department and in Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike.
