Pomp as University sails best Performers

Parte afta Parte… They seem to sing

Cruising aboard MV Vanessa with booming music on Saturday afternoon, was rather a different style in which the management of Victoria University celebrated best students of the previous semester. As a norm, the university throws bashes dubbed VC’s dinner, for students from different faculties who perform above 4.4 Grade Point Average (GPA).

Being part of the celebrations this year, the best students were treated to a two-hour cruise on Lake Victoria where they sailed up to the equator point before settling down for a sumptuous dinner at Safron bar and grill on the shores of lake Victoria in Entebbe.

According to Prof. Krishna Sharma the university vice chancellor, this time, over 37 students excelled both in academics and co-curricular activities. “Unlike in the past events, this time we included students who did us proud in co-curricular activities like sports and entertainment,” noted Sharma.

Sailing is always a thing for Party-lovers

Five students excelled from the faculty of science and technology whereas eleven students from health sciences made it to this year’s dinner. From the faculty of business were thirteen students while seven students excelled from the faculty of humanities.

Departing from Water front beach in Entebbe, the group aboard MV Vanessa sailed at an average speed while dancing to all types of music and sipping all sorts of drinks while pausing for pictures at every single minute. Some, being their first time to sail on water, they could not stop gazing in awe. Seeing how Uganda was naturally endowed, they agreed less, with former British Prime minister’s assertion that this is truly the Pearl of Africa.

  1. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google
    (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
