Being a university student means a thousand things to a thousand people. Jackson Wida doing a Bachelors (Bsc) in Computer Science, Odeudeu Samuel doing Education and Gideon Ddumba doing Developmental studies all in their second years at Gulu University have derived one meaning, it’s all about the hustle.
After a series of proposals and interactions with the guild president, Odeudeu finally secured a contract with the 18th guild government under the leadership of Noowe Johnson themed: Greening Gulu University.
The activities being carried out by the team include; levelling of the potholes, digging up overly raised grounds to create a plateau, dibbing holes for paspalum grass, planting and watering the planted vegetation till full establishment.
“Hopefully maintenance activities such as slashing, pruning of pathway flowers and watering will be offered to us too,” Odeudeu mumbled as he stared at the planted portion of the compound.
“During the campaign period and guild presidential elections, I pledged to involve students at all possible stages of university development and this is what I am sticking to, more is yet to come,” Noowe reassured Campus Bee in an interview held at his office, Gulu University.
With the unemployment topic being a trendy cry on the streets, soft skills and experiences will come in handy for all if not some youths after campus is done. Hopefully, the other universities and guild governments will pick a leaf and offer the assistance and platforms to university students to learn by doing however small the projects may be.
