The Modibbo Adama University, MAU, Yola, has admitted a total of 3,579 students into different academic departments.

Officially admitting the students during the 2023/2024 matriculation ceremony of the university on Wednesday, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Liman Tukur said the 3,579 new students reflect the university’s growing capacity for more students.

The VC added that the start of lost programs in the Faculty of Social and Management Sciences and the establishment of the College of Medical Sciences which has the second set of students among the fresh matriculants, have also contributed to the large number of new students.

He gave the breakdown of matriculating students and their faculties as Faculty of Agriculture, 348 students; Faculty of Education, 241 students; Faculty of Engineering, 355 students; and Faculty of Environmental Sciences, 257 students.

The Vice-Chancellor advised the matriculating students to build their learning abilities and their character strength as university education is not only about reading and learning new things but moulding more resourceful character traits.

He said, “The total number of matriculating students is 3,579. This represents a steady climb in the institution’s holding capacity which we vigorously pursued by seeking the conversion of the institution to its present conventional status.”
