I am most elated to address you for the very first time, in what will become a series of letters, I will be sending to you via this platform, which am certain ,you greatly admire and keep an ear on. I hope you are doing well, Karim sends his regards and is pretty excited by your good works on campus. He said “Prof is doing everything, what will the new one do”?. Just before you get overly excited, let me quickly draw your attention to issues of concern that I feel you must address. It appears to be a recurring trend, where prior to school reopening and even on the d day, students have challenges with registration.
The ITS interface always appears not ready for reopening. It’s sad to note that in some instances, students who don’t even owe a dime cannot still register unless they visit the Students account office. This creates a difficulty, particularly for students from far cities like Tamale, Kumasi and many others, due to Hall management insisting on the proof of registration which students must obtain to continue the process. Some come all the way, very early in the morning, and sometimes leave without completing the process in order to gain access to their rooms.
Lest I forget, the online hall registration that was introduced appears not to have changed much, the only difference being the fact that it is a feature on the its interface, The process remains the same, students are still required to go though the same process; students paY fees, register online, print proof of registration, proceed to obtain residence registration form at Hall level, fill and submit form at the Tutorial office for approval. Per the explanation received from management when this was introduced, it was our expectation that it was a step meant to reduce the human element, a lot more needs to be done.
Prof, I wish to end on this note, wishing you the very best in this week, will certainly send another letter, next week.
