On 11/04/2024, the Vice Chancellor of The Co-operative University of Kenya, Prof. Kamau Ngamau, held a luncheon to celebrate the victory brought by different teams representing the institution in various regional and national competitions in March 2024.

This celebration event was attended by students who participated in beauty pageants, sports, and music competitions.

In the luncheon, the University management highlighted the importance of extracurricular activities in shaping the futures of learners and developing a holistic person.

The activity aimed to underscore the institution’s support in nurturing talents and encouraging students to explore exposure beyond the classroom setting.

Also, this initiative sought to appreciate the resilient efforts dedicated by our brilliant teams for bringing victory to our University and a recognition of the dedication, hard work, and passion the teams demonstrated by carrying our flag high. 

Our sports teams managed to participate in various Nairobi South Kenya University Students Association (NASOKUSA) regional games and bag three (3) trophies.

These included the first (1st) runners-up in Lawn Tennis Ladies, second (2nd) runners-up Hockey Men, and second (2nd) runners-up in Netball Ladies in NASOKUSA games that were held last month at the University of Nairobi.

Ang’ila Lizzy Atieno, a third-year student taking Bachelor of Commerce in the ladies’ Netball team, performed exceptionally well and was selected to represent Kenya’s Under 21 Netball ladies team in South Africa later in the year.

At the national Kenya Universities Sports Association (KUSA) competitions held in March 2024 at Pwani University in Mombasa, our Badminton Ladies team, composed of Elizabeth Kemunto, Bilha Achola, Mercy Chepkoech, and Brittney Misoy,  won the first (1st) runners-up award in a cut-throat competition.

The University is committed to nurturing holistic graduates through supporting talents and extra-curricular activities by students with the requisite resources and facilities to achieve their personal and academic development goals. 

Our Choir, The Chosen Choir, managed to participate in the third (3rd) KUPAA National Music, film, dance, and Elocution Festival held at The Technical University of Mombasa (TUM) between 17th and 22nd March 2024 and won three (3) out of the eight (8) items that they presented.

The institution’s Chosen Choir defended their crown as Kings and Queens of melody and the conquerors of the 2024 music festivals by emerging victorious. 

In the spirit of victory and triumph, the winners of this year’s modeling and beauty pageant, Mr & Miss CUK 2024/2025 Victor Saenyi and Venessa Handas, respectively, together with the contestants, made a name for themselves and will remain in the memory lane of the University’s history as achievers who dared to dream.

Their impressive modeling skills were blended with teamwork and coordination, which gave it a golden touch that was nothing short of exemplary.

The talent, effort, and creativity you showcased in the competition were genuinely inspiring and set a high benchmark for future contestants.
