NNPC/SNECO Tennis Tourney Ends Today

first_imgSpeaking with THISDAY on telephone, Captain of the Tennis Section, Akeem Mustapha said though the primary aim of the tournament was for members to socialise amongst themselves, the competitive level of the tournament was very high.“With what I have seen in the past few days, I have no doubt in my mind that the sponsors would want to do this again,” Mustapha said. After six days of gruelling tennis, the NNPC/SNECO Tennis tournament which began on Monday at the Tennis Section of the Ikoyi Club 1938 will come to a close today. It would be recalled that Hope Nuka, a representative of the Managing Director of SNECO, Bayo Ojulari, had stated that in spite the company’s pleasure to be associated with the tennis section, the outcome of the tournament would indeed determine SNECO’s continued sponsorship.Trophies, cash vouchers and other prizes have been lined up for grabs in all the events, which include the men’s and ladies singles, team’s event, veterans and super veterans amongst others.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more


Thanksgiving break extended

first_imgThe university will no longer hold classes on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, according to a recent memo from Elizabeth Garrett, the provost and senior vice president for academic affairs.“USC is a truly international university with undergraduate and graduate students from across the country and around the world,” Garrett wrote in the memo to university administrators and student leaders. “The Thanksgiving holiday provides an important break in the fall semester for students to relax with friends and family before final exams and the completion of projects.”Although the Academic Calendar Committee did not recommend making this change for the 2011-2012 academic calendar, Garrett still directed the registrar to include Wednesday, November 23, 2011 in the Thanksgiving break. The school will remain open, however, and Wednesday will not be considered a staff holiday.Garrett’s memo cautions deans and faculty to be “rigorous” about holding classes on Monday and Tuesday before Thanksgiving, saying that it is “important that [the university] maintain the very highest academic standards.”last_img read more
