"It gives me great delight to receive you at this prestigious institution, the University of Nairobi. Your admission into this Institution is not a mean achievement. You are the best. Your life will change for good...For the 4, 5, or six years you will spend at the University of Nairobi, we shall provide you with the knowledge that will help you to critically analyze the world you live in and impart you with skills that will help to change it to a better alternative- where people are happier. We shall begin by bringing out the past, and then walk you through the present. However, before you become too comfortable with the present, we shall lead you to a pathway to the future-the unbeaten path - a path of discovery. A future that shall be shaped by your contributions, and your interventions. You will be enabled to envision a better future and to develop skills to look for solutions to current problems."
