KNUST to Reintroduce Student Week Activities

The Student Representative Council (SRC) and the Graduate Students’ Association of Ghana (GRASAG) at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have formed a special committee to plan and organize the much-anticipated Student Week celebrations. This initiative aims to revive Junior Common Room Council (JCRC) activities and Hall Week festivities, which were previously banned.

The decision to form the committee is a positive response to student concerns and signals a potential lifting of the ban on these events. The committee will work diligently to ensure a well-structured and enjoyable Student Week experience, balancing university regulations with a vibrant campus atmosphere.

The announcement was made in a letter dated June 29, 2024, signed by KNUST SRC President, H.E Yvonne Osei Adobea. This development has sparked hope for the return of cherished student traditions, promising excitement and a strengthened sense of unity within the KNUST community.

Student Week celebrations are a significant part of the university’s calendar, and their reinstatement is expected to bring back a sense of normalcy and excitement to the campus. The event aims to promote student engagement, leadership, and community building, which are essential for a well-rounded university experience.

The SRC and GRASAG have been at the forefront of advocating for the reinstatement of JCRC activities and Hall Week festivities, and their efforts have finally paid off. The formation of the special committee demonstrates the university’s willingness to listen to student concerns and find a solution that benefits all parties.

The KNUST community eagerly awaits the Student Week celebrations, which promise to be an exciting and memorable experience. With the special committee working tirelessly to ensure a successful event, the university is poised to witness a renewed sense of unity and school spirit.
