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
