Representatives from the Admissions and Marketing and Communications departments visited St. Anthony Boys High School in Kitale, Trans Nzoia County, on Saturday March 30, to inspire 400 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) candidates to work smart and get a chance to study at USIU-Africa.
Led by the Chief Manager-Admissions, Dr. George Lumbasi, the team educated the candidates on the requirements for joining the university, the various sophisticated programs offered by renowned faculty, scholarship opportunities that are available, the diverse culture with over 72 nationalities represented, the exchange programs and the endless opportunities to get out-of-classroom knowledge that awaits them at USIU-Africa.
So far, the university has admitted over 20 former St. Anthony students to various programs. Additionally, every year the men’s hockey team visits the school to nurture the young hockey talents and further drive admissions recruitment by informing them about sports scholarships offered at the university.
Additionally, both departments earlier travelled to Karima Girls High School in Nyandarua County on Thursday, March 28 during their 2019 Career Day. The representatives from both departments highlighted the quality of education that comes with small faculty to student ratio, world class facilities, exchange programs and industry partnerships to over 500 students including the Utumishi Boys Academy from Gilgil, Nakuru County.
Both St. Anthony Boys High School and Karima Girls are national high schools located in Kitale and North Kinangop respectively. St. Anthony Boys boasts of a population of over 1800 while Karima Girls has about 1700 students.
