Addressing the matriculants, the Vice Chancellor, Professor Bill Puplampu challenged them to focus on the purpose for enrolling on the various programmes and endeavour to let the new knowledge they will acquire improve their professional skills and impact their world of work. He reminded them that Central University has zero tolerance for illicit drugs, smoking, ocultic practices, improper sexual conduct, indecent dressing and examination malpractices.He advised them to make the most of the time because it was possible to matriculate but never graduate.
Professor Bill Puplampu asked the matritulants to make use of the available official channels of communication through their Deans and other relevant administrators. He reminded them that most corrupt practices are incubated in school when students neglet layed down procedures and compromise on issues of ethics and integrity. He further congratulated the students for choosing Central University and assured them that they will not regret this decision.
The Vice Chancellor also extended his appreciation to the member of Council and Head Pastor of the Calvary Charismatic Church, Rev.

The Director of the Kumasi campus,Rev. Vincent Aquaah, in his exhortation from Genesis chapter 1 reminded the matriculants that God created both males and females in his own likeness and as such each gender is endowed with the requisite abilities to excel in life. He called on them to effectively combine the various challenges of work, family, financial demands and school in order to benefit from their investment. Quoting from Luke 2:52 and Phillipians 3:14, Rev Aquaah urged the students to grow in their relationship with God and men just as Jesus Christ increased in wisdom, stature and in favour with God and men. He reminded them that human beings are social creatures and so growing healthy relationships while in school is very critical.
