Welcome to a new semester at SPU.

We all hope that you had a wonderful semester break, and that you enjoyed the time you had to share with your loved ones; friends and family. We hope that you are looking forward to a great semester and you have come back with renewed energy.

The January semester offers each one of us great opportunities to engage with each other; faculty, staff and students. We hope that it will also challenge us to be innovative and come up with great ideas to help us grow as a University and enhance our academic experience.

We began the semester with reporting and orientation for the freshers in all our campuses-­ Nakuru, Machakos, Nairobi and Limuru.  We welcome all the new students to SPU and wish you the best experience here.Being in college is one of the most life changing opportunities you’ll ever have. There is the chance to encounter different experiences—interacting with people from other counties and countries, celebrating the diverse cultural heritage of our campus and much more. We know your education here will be a defining moment in your lives.

As the semester gets under way, we hope that you will take advantage of the many opportunities that the University offers to the students, faculty and staff in sports, academic development, research, clubs involvement and much more.  We look forward to a great semester, which will include among other activities, the East Africa games in February that will be going down in Tanzania which St. Paul’s sports teams will be representing.

There are over 10 clubs on campus, so each student can find a place where they can fit in. Groups range from religious, cultural, environmental to academic. The clubs include; Environmental Club, Variety Thursday Group, Choir, Drama Club, Scouts, SIFE, Peer Educators, Y4C, Christian Union and much more. Students can know more about this through the students’ counselors’ office.  Students also have the opportunity of starting new clubs of their choice. And we know that the students’ counselor will not mind staff and faculty participating in these clubs as well through offering advice and any other support.

In March 11th – 15th we will have the special events week and also you will get to choose your leaders through the SPUSA elections which will be happening in the same month.

SPU is a university that attracts some of the most talented faculty members in their disciplines. They are all available for consultation by students. Your education will only be as rich and challenging as you make it, and students who get to know their lecturers often are the first to learn of the best opportunities and internships.

There are plenty of people here on campus — faculty, the counseling office, residence staff, who are here for you whenever you need them.

For the graduating class, this is a time for you to get busy, as you concentrate on your studies also look out for internship and job opportunities.

We are pleased to welcome you to the new semester and we hope that it will be great and productive for you.  Happy New Semester!

NB: The Dean of students’ office and the Public Relations and Marketing office are great resources for the students and they are ready to give you the kind of support that you require as well as help you with personal and professional issues and concerns.
