Every school has certain activities which are bound to occur every year. They have become part and parcel of the school’s culture and cannot be done away with.
Here at Takoradi Technical University, these are the events you must know about.
A very important day for everyone who has ever passed through uni.
Held to officially welcome new students into the school, matriculation is one thing we all look forward to.
Photoshoots are basically the biggest thing for students on this day.
SRC AKWAABA WEEK
The SRC Akwaaba is a week-long celebratory event aimed at integrating freshmen into the school. It is a week filled with fun activities such as candle night, floats, akwaaba jams as well as the electrifying artistes’ night.
Chale, if there’s one thing you should never miss in uni, it’s akwaaba week.
I mean what story would you have to tell? Who comes to uni and doesn’t go for akwaaba week?
FACULTY WEEK CELEBRATIONS
In the second semester, each Faculty is dedicated a week for faculty week celebrations.

The election week often takes place a few weeks before the end of 2nd semester examinations. It is a very busy week which sees a lot of campaigning activities, vetting and eventually voting of new SRC executives.
