Hold a book, read a book! Oxbridge marks World Book Day.

The college, on the 4th of March 2016, joined the rest of the world to mark World Book Day in a programme themed: HOLD A BOOK, READ A BOOK.

Incidentally and symbolically, as part of the programme for the day, in an effort to sensitise the college community to the beauty and value of reading, everybody had to carry a favourite book.

When the programme finally commenced at 2:30pm the expansive Dining Hall had been decorated to create a book-friendly ambiance, with some invited publishers displaying books for everyone to appreciate and buy. The Special Guest / speaker, Okechukwu Ofili, who is an alumnus of the college, set the ball rolling by talking about how he not only transformed from being a below-average student to being the renowned author he is today. He also read from his bestseller, How Stupidity Saved My Life. Members of staff and students equally had the opportunity to read from their favourite literary works.

The wish of the organisers of the event is that we would all imbibe a life-time healthy reading habit.
