On September 4, 2021, our second cohort of BSc. Business Information Technology students reported to the Palm Hostel located at EMEFS Estate, Afienya – Mataheko near the Palm campus. 

On Monday, September 6th, 2021, the Freshmen arrived on campus to begin their orientation. They were formally welcomed by the President of Palm Institute. He spoke to them about the mission of Palm and our quest to educate ethical and excellent leaders in African. He also spoke them about the Palm Honor System and Examination Code and its relevance to our effort to educate ethical leaders. He presented the Palm Innovation & Technology Lab, Capstone and Entrepreneurship Projects, the Palm Centre for Ethical & Excellent Leadership (PCEL) and their relevance to lifelong career and professional development of the Palm students and graduates.

The Registrar introduced the students to the various Academic Services and gave them a talk on “Surviving the Challenges of University Life.”  She elaborated on the rules and regulations for the lecture hall, hostel and shuttle services with the students.

The Career Service Officer also introduced the freshmen to the Career Services Department and its mandate to set up and facilitate Internships, Job-Shadowing, Community Services and Corporate Mentoring opportunities for all Palm students.

The Librarian of the University orientated the students on how to use the library effectively. He discussed the usefulness, purpose and objectives of the library. He also introduced the freshmen to the University Library policies and encouraged all freshmen to adhere to them.  

The Director for International Programs addressed the freshmen on International Students Exchanges and International Internships in USA and UK. She also educated the new students on the Palm Sexual Harassment Policy.

The IT Officer, practically walked the Freshmen through the Online Students Information System (OSIS) Management and the E-Learning platform to ensure a smooth transition into the University Information Technology Systems.

As part of the orientation, Wednesday, September 8, 2021 was dedicated to parents of our Freshman Class; the “Day with the Parents”. Parents of the Freshmen arrived from all over the country to participate in our Freshman Orientation Activities for the Class of 2025. They were introduced to the services the University provides for all Palm students and were told about the expectations the University has of them as parents who children are receiving full and partial scholarships to be educated here at Palm.

During the orientation the students were addressed by the Board Chair of NAPE Foundation, USA, a Trustee of the David Okai Okantey (DOO) Foundation, the International Programs Coordinator, Oklahoma State University (OSU), the President of the Palm Student Council and a representative of the Palm Alumni Council. We are extremely grateful to have the Class of 2025 on campus with us. Welcome to the Palm Family!
