Crescent University, Abeokuta has matriculated 700 students into Bola Ajibola College of Law, College of Information and Communication Technology, College of Environmental Sciences, College of Social and Management Sciences and College of Natural and Applied Sciences.

The new students have been admitted to study various degree programmes on full-time and part-time basis as regulated by the National Universities Commission(NUC).

Addressing the students, the Proprietor, Judge Bola Ajibola referred to them as "our pride, our vision, our mission", noting that "the creation of this university is faith-motivated to bring about balance in the field of education rather than financial benefits".

At the ninth matriculation of the institution, its Vice Chancellor, Prof. Kehinde Okeleye charged the students to adhere to the standard of behaviour expected of them as highlighted in the university handbook and at their orientation programme.

He congratulated them stressing that " you are lucky to be admitted and be able to take up the admission offer because 1.2 million candidates sat for the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) that qualified you, in the first instance, for the post UTME Screening Exercise".

Prof. Okeleye said that the students' population has been enhanced by " benefactors especially the governments of Kano, Zamfara, Sokoto and Lagos who have sponsored substantial number of students on scholarship to this university", adding that the Crescent University had students from virtually all states of Nigeria.
