The traditionalist happened
- We had the traditionalist in our emails. For those who missed the story…LoL… To cut a long story short, a gentleman from the class of 2020 misplaced his black Lenovo laptop charger, and here is how he concluded his email: “NB: Whoever has it (which is undeniable) should not risk keeping it because I am honestly reminding all that I am a faithful traditionalist.” So the trend followed. Anyone who misplaced any belonging of his/hers, made reference to the traditionalist.
The Grannies Tasting Party
- Which Ashesian could have forgotten about the GTP session which was held at the amphitheatre. Even if you were not there, I am sure your WhatsApp status and Snap Chat were buzzing with Ashesians and Staffulty trying delicious delicacies with Grannies shito.
Then we had the elections
- The list of presidential aspirants were released. Unfortunately, some students were not happy about the outcome because one of their members was considered as not being eligible to stand. So they went on a No Reforms No Elections campaign, which did not yield anything.
- Run-offs happened
- WinJamming and the A-Game won the hearts of Ashesians
- The Class of 2020 signed unto the honour code system. Congratulations to them for officially joining the team of ethical leaders.
- The shocking news of the Dean of Engineering, Dr. Fred McBagonluri, leaving the institution to return to industry.
- The death of Daniel Kobi, Class of 2020.
The 8th Ubora Awards
- The much anticipated Ubora awards happened, after the “white” dress code battle between students and the entertainment.
- The night of glitz and glamour happened at the La Palm Royal Beach.
We were privileged to embrace the following guests on our campus

Hope you had a wonderful semester filled with amazing memories, aside dealing with Courseware and FOCUS.
Have a Merry X’mas and a prosperous New Year, Ashesians.
