Join us in welcoming the MUST Class of 2026.
The MUST family held a matriculation ceremony for 1st Year Students to engage with management, faculty and staff. The ceremony, led by MUST Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Romanus Odhiambo was held at the Graduation Square. The venue speaks to the mission of the event; to effectively prepare and encourage first year students to maintain the diligence required in order to assemble at the same venue to receive their academic achievement.
The matriculation ceremony is held after a week-long orientation process guiding the students in order to ensure seamless transition into MUST. This event presents an opportunity for all first-year students to engage with management, faculty, staff and fellow students.
Fr. Dr. Elias Kinoti challenged our students to start off the journey by owning their space, believing in themselves and by respecting each other. Fr. Kinoti’s teaching informed students on the significance of flexibility as a student. He informed all students on the importance of respecting leadership, self and each other’s rights.
“The greatest accomplishments in life are derived away from your comfort zone. You have to push yourself beyond what is simply required of you. Put more effort into your existence as a University student. Each and every student here has a talent or skill. Serve the world and empower yourself by investing in it. We have a variety of nationally and internationally decorated clubs, societies and sporting activities, they lead the charts in their respective categories. Tap into your talents and create healthy and lasting friendships while at it. This will require personal initiative.” MUST Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Romanus Odhiambo.
” Your first allegiance should be to your creator. Purpose to present your best gifts and enjoy your journey through University. Manage your freedom; you are now part of a community. Live in peace. Your relationship with the community is solely up to you. We expect you to be responsible and great ambassadors of MUST.” Deputy Vice-Chancellor, (Administration, Finance and Planning) Prof. Chairy Gichuki shared with the students.
The Students Association of Meru University (SAMU) Leadership, led by the Chairman, Mr. Oguk Hannington Oluoch encouraged the first year students to prioritize their academics and take up space within sports and student-led societies. Mr. Oguk asked the students to always remember the student leadership exists to serve them.

The university achieves this by offering quality education, training and research.

The Ag. Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Simon Thuranira urged the first year students to adhere to the rules and regulations of the University and implored them to remain steadfast in their pursuit for academic excellence.
The Vice-Chancellor assured The MUST Class of 2026 of the University’s commitment to providing holistic development. “MUST has created the most enriching environment possible for you. We can only choose to live in unity and peace. There is no other option available at Meru University. We are a home of love. This can only be maintained by honoring each other. You will meet people from all walks of life. That is who Meru University is; a home for all. Our diversity is our beauty.
