STUDENTS should do research on the various post-secondary institutions before deciding which one to join, the Uganda Martyrs University vice-chancellor has advised.
Prof. Charles Olweny, speaking at the re-union of old students of St. Peterâ€™s College Tororo last Saturday, said the right choice could only be made after analysing the structures and teaching resources of the various universities.
â€œAt the last count, there were over 26 public and private universities to choose from. For the student to choose wisely and appropriately, better check out and ask a number of pertinent questions.â€
Olweny said the best universities were those where the best Aâ€™ level leavers were admitted, those with the smallest classes and well-stocked libraries.
He added that good universities are those that emphasise quality and innovation.
A refurbished science laboratory and dormitory were officially opened at the ceremony that also marked St. Peterâ€™s Day.
The laboratory refurbishment was funded by the old boys association, while Vaughan dormitory got a new look, courtesy of the Rev. Fr. James Fanning of the Mill Hill Missionary.
The auxilliary Bishop of Tororo Diocese, the Rt. Rev Charles Wamika, the king of the Adhola, Moses Owor, MP Geofrey Ekanya and Elisha Obella, an academician, attended.
