Today is the day to refresh, in your hearts and minds, the dream for a beautiful and wonderful future.” 

The VC Prof. Peter Mbithi on his part congratulated the graduands saying “Today you leave our gates and head out into the world. We have prepared you as best as we could. Only one thing will I therefore beseech thee my graduands, to heed the wisdom of Lao Tzu thus; 

“I have three precious things which I hold fast and prize. The first is gentleness, the second is frugality and the third is humility which keeps me from putting myself before others. Be gentle and you can be bold; be frugal and you can be liberal; avoid putting yourself before others and you can become a leader among men” 

Congratulations to the graduating class of December 2015.
