President George Manneh Weah visits the University of Liberia Capitol Hill campus today, Wednesday, 24 October to make a major policy statement that would affect thousands of students attending the University.
According to a press release, to afford students, faculty, staff, and others the opportunity to attend and listen to President Weah, the UL Administration has, with immediate effect, suspected all classes on all campuses of the University of Liberia today, Wednesday.
The President is expected to arrive at 2 p.m. and will make a brief tour of some of the facilities on the Capitol Hill campus, including the university’s historic library housed in the Nathaniel H. Cassell Building, the Williams V.S. Tubman Hall, one of the oldest buildings on the Capitol Hill campus, among others.
Following the brief tour, President Weah would proceed to the historic UL Auditorium to deliver a special back-to-school statement and make the policy announcement.
The President’s visit comes less than three weeks after he dedicated the automation/digitization of the University’s registration system, on October 4, 2018, bringing to an end the manual UL registration system, which was a source of frequent students protest at the University of Liberia.
Meanwhile, the UL Administration invites all current students of the University of Liberia — including students recently admitted, students seeking admissions, students who dropped out, as well as future students on the Capitol Hill campus to grace the President’s visit.
Students are advised to arrive early enough in anticipation of the 2 p.m. arrival of the Visitor. The University of Liberia resumed classes on Monday, October 22, 2018, for the 1st semester academic year 2018/19. Press Release
