Daily Trust - - CAMPUS ROUNDUP - By Aliough Daniel Ter­wanger

The Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Stu­dents’ As­so­ci­a­tion (MACOSA), Nasarawa State Univer­sity, Keffi, (NSUK) had on Fri­day March 28, 2014 held its MACOSA Day.

It fea­tured speeches, drama pre­sen­ta­tions, tra­di­tional dances, mock news pre­sen­ta­tion (Stan­dard English), mock news pre­sen­ta­tion (Pid­gin English), paper pre­sen­ta­tions, beauty con­test and pre­sen­ta­tion of awards.

The event took place at the 500seat Theatre and Cul­tural Stud­ies Au­di­to­rium.

Mr. Oba­diah Kyune, the MACOSA Pres­i­dent, in his ad­dress ex­plained why MACOSA Day was or­gan­ised.

He said the event was aimed at cre­at­ing a plat­form for so­cial in­ter­ac­tion among stu­dents, on the one hand, and be­tween stu­dents and lec­tur­ers, on the other.

He added that it is part of the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties of the MACOSA ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil to or­gan­ise so­cial events to en­hance re­la­tion­ships in the Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion fam­ily.

Mr. Kyune as­sured that his ex­ec­u­tive coun­cil will col­lab­o­rate with the univer­sity man­age­ment to cre­ate a con­ducive at­mos­phere for learn­ing.

The MACOSA pres­i­dent urged the mem­bers to at­tend lec­tures reg­u­larly, dress de­cently, shun ex­am­i­na­tion mal­prac­tice and al­ways chan­nel their com­plaints to the ap­pro­pri­ate au­thor­i­ties.

The act­ing head of Depart­ment, Malam Muham­mad S. Rabiu, com­mended the cur­rent lead­ers of the union for their re­source­ful­ness and de­ter­mi­na­tion to hold the MACOSA Day this year.

“To­gether, we shall carry Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion to greater heights; Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion must blos­som and flour­ish,” he said.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the act­ing Vice Chan­cel­lor, Pro­fes­sor Olayemi Ak­in­wumi, said Mass Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Depart­ment is dear to him as it was es­tab­lished when he was the Dean of the Fac­ulty of Arts in 2005.

A drama themed “Im­pli­ca­tions of sex out­side mar­riage” was staged by stu­dents from the English Depart­ment.
