In his address, Professor Obeng Mireku charged the new students to take their academics seriously, insisting that there is no magic formula for success.

These characteristics represent our core values; values we believe in and uphold.

“Matriculants, you will do well to embrace and embody these values if success is to be within your reach. On behalf of the Chancellor, Management, Faculty, and Staff of this great Institution, I once again extend a warm welcome to all matriculants,” the President of Wisconsin International University College said in his address.
