Just before we vacated for the first semester, I was going for my lunch break one day, and behind the hospitality department, where the lady sells ice water,
Some student boys sat there and were arguing, I overheard them saying no one came to KTU with a single grade and one of them said he had, and they said if you have a single grade why did you bring it to a Technical University? One added that, we those in the Polytechnics or Technical Universities are the rejected from the UG, KNUST, UPS, GIMPA and so on, the so called traditional universities.
I felt so bad listening to these Students, implying they are failures nothing good will come out of them. The human mind is such that, whatever toughs you feed it with, some output you would get (garbage in garbage out) in computing. You are never a failure make the best out of every situation, GOD has a purpose why he placed you here
“But wait a minute ooh”, does these grades really get you the job? Pays the bills, Put food on the table etc. or the choice of your school make you a first class student.
Let us face reality, what is the purpose of schooling? And acquiring knowledge, most of the knowledge we acquire is not in the classroom setting, the classroom is guide for you and not to determine what you will become.
The world’s most powerful people who made wealth are school dropouts and they have so much influence in the economy of a country
Set High Standards for Yourself
Don’t let the confine of KTU limit you to your learning, don’t just do the normal by going to class, coping notes, reading handouts and hoping to passing KTU exams.
See beyond KTU, you have a purpose greater than KTU, take that bold step learn new stuff on your own, add value to your life.
Your job interview might not come from what you learned in the classroom
This is the time you determine who you want to become.
May every day of the New Year be filled with success, happiness and prosperity.
