Fifth Matriculation Ceremony in CATUC
"Keeping Aflame the CATUC Brand"

The 2014/2015 academic year in CATUC was launched with the theme "Keeping Aflame the CATUC Brand". The build-up to the academic year was marked by several events including: Admission of fresh men and women, a series of meetings, Quality Assurance Workshop, Orientation and, of course, the Matriculation of Freshmen and women. The Matriculation was the highlight of the activities because it brought together almost all the stakeholders of CATUC. It is the last event before the start of lessons in CATUC.


The Matriculation event for the freshmen/women of the 2014/2015 academic year was done on Friday October 10, 2014 in solemn ceremony. The first part was a Pontifical Holy Mass that was led by the Chancellor of the University His Grace Cornelius Esua. He was assisted by bishop George Nkuo and Bishop Agapitus Nfon, the Auxiliary bishop of Bamenda.

Mgr George Nkuo preached at the occasion. In his Homily, he admonished the University community on the reality of the Devil in the world as well as insinuated that some of the problems CATUC faces are due to the working and presence of the Devil in the world. The second phase of the matriculation ceremony began with the Academic Procession of Faculty to the CATUC ceremonial grounds. The Vice Chancellor of CATUC, Rev. Fr. Michael Niba welcomed all who turned out for the ceremony especially the Guest Speaker:  Prof. Lyonga Nalova, the Vice Chancellor of the University of Buea. To the matriculating students, he congratulated them for making the right choice urging them to dream big  and allow CATUC to enable them meet those dreams.

The Chancellor of CATUC, His Grace Cornelius Esua on his part welcomed the freshmen and women to CATUC, giving them a lot of advice that would make their stay in CATUC fulfilling.

Prof. Nalova Lyonga, in her Academic Discourse, appreciated the growth of CATUC in terms of numbers and quality. She then went on to counsel the freshmen and women using her skills as a critic and the enormous experience she has gathered both as a student and an administrator in several ranks.

The registrar of the University
Rev. Fr. Joseph Awoh, on behalf of the Senate administered the Matriculation Oath  to the students after which the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Academics, Prof. Paul Nchoji Nkwi explained to the students the consequences of taking such an oath. The VC on behalf of the Chancellor declared the students who took the oath to be matriculated as students of the Catholic University of Cameroon, CATUC, Bamenda.
