AAUA: Mass Comm Students Celebrate Press Week In Style by Azeemokoya: 10:55am On Jun 25, 2021
The National Association of Mass Communication Students (NAMACOS) of Adekunle Ajasin University, Akungba Akoko in Ondo State celebrated her 14th annual Press Week in grand style, leaving an imprint to tell the memorable history.

Press Week is an annual celebration of the media students and usually takes place in the second semester. Students have a remarkable encounter of learning, unlearning and relearning. They have fun but most importantly, it’s a time to say a splendid farewell to the final year students of the association.

Several activities take place over the course of the week; Monday for Old School Day, Tuesday for Cultural Day, Wednesday for a public lecture and symposium, Thursday for indoor games and Friday for awards and dinner party. On Sunday, there is a thanksgiving service to appreciate God for the success of the program.

This event showcases the excellent planning of the Students Executive Council (EXCO), student representatives, caucus leaders and students of the association. Students pay N1,000 for the event to cover the cost of the various activities and dinner party. Branded vests and ankara are also sold at affordable prices to grace the occasion.

Monday: Old School Day
The students trooped out in their thousands to mark the ‘old school day’ celebration. The dress code was old school uniform as stipulated by the press week committee. After the assembly finished at 10:00am, the students were led by the association president, Comrade Ikulajolu Adesola.

Tuesday: Cultural Day
The second day of Press Week was a showcase of Yoruba and other cultures. This year, the cultural day was organised in conjunction with the Africa Communication System (ACS). ACS is a course at the department of Mass Communication, where the first year students learn and display African cultures to entertain, educate and inform.

Wednesday: Public Lecture
The public lecture and symposium is always the real deal for the students as it is boasts great topics. It was held at the Obasanjo Multipurpose Hall of the University.

Last year, veteran journalist Mojeed Alabi of the Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalists gave a lecture on the Ethics of Journalism.

This year was also quite interesting as media experts from various fields of journalism were present. They shared from their collective wealth of knowledge and experience about the theme – ‘Beyond Grades: Meeting Demands Of The Media Industry‘.

The speakers charged the students to get fired up to overthrow those who have hijacked the profession. They did justice with their teaching and admonished the students to take their rightful position in the media industry.
