Nile University held the opening ceremony for the 2017/18 academic session on October 18, 2017. The event, hosted by the Vice-Chancellor, offered an opportunity to take stock of the previous year’s achievements; applauding areas of excellence while stressing the need for continuous improvement. Some of the important accomplishments of last year touched upon included the EBSCO online library membership, introduction of the Public Administration and Mass Communication departments, construction of new offices to accommodate the growing staff population, etc. The ceremony also provided an avenue to lay out the University’s plans for this academic session, chief among which is the successful hosting of the 2017 Nigerian Private University Games (NPUGA).
