My ST.AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY is different from other universities and I love my university. I am penning down my thoughts on what makes my university different
Can you think of the place, where one meets students from different backgrounds, temperaments, some mischievous, some bright, and some really cute!
The challenge of discovering for yourself the magic of science in the laboratories, learning the skill of programming, making robots dancing to your tune in the computer laboratory, makes you feel like a magician. This makes it an innovation-driven university.
Could there be a better fairyland than a university, which makes it possible for us to create all this? Cool, where one makes friends, one plays, enjoys, learns and grows. Such a place, my friends, can only be ST. AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY.
Imagine how dull our lives would be if there was no ST. AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY. The open spacious grounds to run and play, the world of books, where one lives in the characters described in them, the experience of living a life with different characters in novels. Losing oneself in them, visiting different cities, countries, reliving the past, the present and the future, as visualized by the writers, gives a completely different dimension to one’s life. Could it be possible had it not been for the school library?
My university, which is situated in the heart of Uganda, that is its capital city KAMPALA-BUNGA is the place, which I have described above. I love my ST. AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY; it is like the blood, which flows in my veins and Arteries, I cannot live without it. I am what I am because of this wonderful part of my life.
My university is the temple of learning which I worship each day, without fail. It is here that I have learned to differentiate between right and wrong, discovered my dreams, to read and enjoy what I read, the skill to manage my conflicts, the ability to modify my behavior, respect my elders and friends, be kind, compassionate, forgiving and good. I learn all this from my lecturers who have these qualities and do not just ask me to be good. They make me understand, how to be good, by being good themselves. They never lose their patience, they do not scold, and they just make us reflect over what we have done and what will be the consequences of our actions.
In other words, they make us accountable for what we do. They forgive us for our mistakes and we learn to forgive others for theirs. When they teach, we are spellbound, we do not know how, but we keep on answering correctly, all the questions, which they put up to us. Learning can be fun; it is what you can experience in ST. AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY. We debate, discuss, question and then conclude. The best part is, there are lecturers who learn with us, rather than making us learn.
Who would not want to remain 24 hours in a university like ours? We go on field trips, community placements, live in villages, visit historical places, attend leadership camps and seminars, participate in adventure camps and are involved in so many activities that life is filled with excitement each day.
St. Augustine International University is definitely the best place to study for the 21st-century student. Due to its vision: “To be recognized as moral rearmament, job creation, and innovation-driven university and mission: To pursue research, teaching, and learning of international distinctions, academically current, innovative and responsive to local and global community needs
We are indeed lucky to be studying at a university like this. My university is fun, my university is exciting and each day my university is full of opportunities, an adventure, and a discovery.
Oh my dear ST. AUGUSTINE INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY I love you so much that I cannot imagine my life without you.
