The Vice Chancellor reminded the audience that being an international university it is incumbent for each one to be accommodative and respectful as they learn from each other. “The standard code of conduct and decorum should be observed at all times, public display of love and affection is discouraged as such might be misconstrued.”

Decent dressing is mandatory and every student must be conscious of security issues. Students, faculty and staff must report any suspicious activity to the security personnel for immediate attention.
In conclusion the Vice Chancellor advised the students to spend their time in a quality manner avoiding activities and associations which may create insecurity. “Be your brothers’ keeper”.
