Coffee & Cake Session 6/2019
The sixth and final Coffee and Cake session for this year was held on 25 October 2019. This casual gathering session was very well attended by the postgraduates students.
Introducing the new Postgraduate Students’ Officer
During the session, the newly elected Postgraduate Students’ Officer, Angela Paul Peter, took the opportunity to introduce herself to the postgraduate students. Angela won in the recently concluded Students’ Association (SA) election for the position. She is a first year MPhil student from the Department of Chemical and Environmental Engineering. In her first address as the Postgraduate Students’ Officer, Angela expressed her enthusiasm in representing her peers and delivering her manifesto for the betterment of postgraduate community at the University.
Also present at the session, Olaoluwa Duro-Bello (fondly known as Ola) took the opportunity to address the postgraduate students in his capacity as the outgoing Postgraduate Students’ Officer. “It was an honour to have served in this capacity for two tenures and I am grateful for all the support. I am proud of Angela for taking up the responsibility and I will extend my full support to her during and after the transition period. I am confident that she will attain even greater strides than her predecessors,” said Ola. He further encouraged the postgraduate students to engage with the Postgraduate Students’ Network (PGSN).
A raft of research shows that taking break boosts productivity. Something about taking a break outside of work space refreshes us. So, it is always a good idea to come for our Coffee and Cake session where it provides the postgraduate students with a much-needed breather.
This time around we hosted our postgraduate students with some strawberry cream puffs, brownies butter cake and crispy fried spring rolls.
Continuing next year
Our Coffee and Cake sessions are open to all our postgraduate students including postgraduate research students (PGRs) and postgraduate taught students (PGTs). These sessions will continue on next year and the dates will be announced in due course.
Come and join the rest of the postgraduate community on campus in these social gathering sessions and enjoy the free refreshments!
On a separate note, we will be having our annual Deepavali Celebration for postgraduate students on Wednesday 13 November 2019 at 1pm in H1B12. We welcome all our postgraduate students to join us in celebrating the joyous occasion.
