Kabarak University's January 2024 intake orientation program kicked off with a unique collaboration with the National Authority for the Campaign Against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA). The Counseling Department, in a forward-thinking move, prioritized crucial issues like substance abuse and life skills to ensure students are well-equipped for both academic and personal challenges.
On Friday, January 12th, NACADA experts led an engaging session addressing the impact of drugs and substance abuse. Through interactive discussions, workshops, and activities, students gained valuable insights and coping mechanisms. The session also emphasized essential life skills, such as effective communication and stress management, reinforcing Kabarak University's commitment to holistic development.
This collaborative effort between Kabarak University and NACADA showcases a proactive approach to addressing potential obstacles to student success. The interactive and informative session is part of a broader orientation program running until Tuesday, January 16th. As students acclimate to their new environment, the university aims to instill not only academic proficiency but also practical skills for navigating the complexities of life beyond the classroom.
