The University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) has resumed lectures on Monday after a six-month-long closure due to concerns about the coronavirus.
Some Freshmen and final year students who will be enjoying six weeks of face-to-face lectures are happy to be back to school.
Emmanuel, who is a level 100 student said: “I am looking forward to making new friends and expanding my social circle.”
Ephraim, a level 400 Public Relations student told UPSANEWSROOM.com that he has “missed being in the hostel and hanging out with friends at the hostel and cooking and eating so I am very excited to be back.”
“This semester I am looking forward to increasing my Grade Point Average (GPA) and also enjoying my final year in school,” he added.
On her part, Martha, a level 400 student of Public Relations said she is also happy to be back to school.
She is, however, unhappy with the modular system being run by the school whereby some students take turns to enjoy face-to-face lectures.
“I am happy to be back in school but I think they could have asked us all to come back because even markets are opened and people are working so why can’t we do the same?” she asked.
Also speaking to UPSANEWSROOM.com, Omar, a final year student thanked the university management for reopening the school.
“I am happy to be back in school. I really missed being in class with all my friends. I am happy to see them all again.”
