CU Alumni Base Extends Helping Hand To Challenged Students
Covenant University Alumni Association (CUALA) has taken a bold step towards helping not just graduates of the University, but also supporting current students who are financially challenged particularly in the payment of tuition fee, through its Student Support Scheme.
According to the Administrative Manager of Covenant University Alumni Association (CUALA), Mrs. Rachael Coker, the Student Support Scheme is a forum set up to assist undergraduates with financial needs and balance up payments of tuition to the University.
She added that since resumption of the Omega (Second) Semester, CUALA has received over One Million and Eighty-Seven Naira (=N=1,000,087:00) in financial request from various students, and these range from Thirty Thousand Naira to One Hundred and Eighty Thousand Naira.
Apart from this, CUALA will through her Mentorship Programme bring CU graduates, Eagles, to mentor the undergraduates. Besides, the association’s career unit is also working towards preparing the final year students in readiness for the work environment.
In addition, she stated that the Career Unit of CUALA has over the past years become a veritable means of getting and changing jobs for final year students and CU Eagles. Moreover, the Strategic Business Group of the association is working towards helping graduates of the University with intent to go into business to initialize and jump-start their business ideas.
The Alumni-base of Covenant University has since inception in 2006 witnessed an increased membership base of 9,498 Eagles, scattered across Nigeria and in diaspora.
