To start us off, we will shine the limelight on Moi University located in Kesses Constituency in Uasin Gishu County of the Rift Valley.
Five exquisite spots you should check in on your visit to Moi University
Moi University is ranked one of the best in the country, boasting of a second place after the University of Nairobi. Many, probably who haven’t set foot inside, make fun of it as a village university. Woe unto them if they don’t make a trip inside this soon!
1. Have a tour inside the resplendent administration block
You haven’t been to Moi University if you haven’t peered inside the magnificent green-white building at the entrance of the university square.
The admin, as referred to by students, holds over 200 offices with different departments and is home to the stately university Senate
The building is also home to the former Kenya Television Service studios, the Vice Chancellor and Deputy Vice Chancellor’s offices. It also hosts two Auto Teller Machines (ATMs) which serve financial purposes to the lecturers, staff as well as students.
2. Visit the evergreen glaring Kesses Falls
For the first two weeks of one’s life in First Year as part of the physical orientation is visiting the Falls located on the North East frontier of the university.
The boredom that begets one before starting off a semester pushes students to visit the glaring falls. The site thus acts as a stress reliever to most students beaten by their academic life.
The tourist attraction site is a recreational facility that attracts many students during weekends, and also acts as a picnic site for most clubs in the school and a scenery for doing photo shoots.
3. Have a hearty meal at Chela’s
It is without any doubt that most students have eaten a meal or two at this joint.
Besides being cheap, the restaurant, located at Talai Centre ‘Stage Area’ near the E- Sport Lounge, offers a variety of meals depending on one’s interest. The meals, which range from ugali mix, pilau to mchele mix, is favourite to students who wish to save a coin.
4. Have a boat ride at Kesses Dam
Located some few metres from the school is another tourist attraction site, the Kesses Dam. The dam is a soft spot for lovebirds and couples who wish to experience the ‘beauty of love’.
The natural breeze around the sea-like water, leave alone the thrilling boat race that one pays for at least sh 30 only, is something to reckon with.
This is the place most visited on weekends and it usually has a beehive of fun activities such as singing, dancing, photo shooting, partying and picnics.
5. Speak on the mics at MU FM
At the basement of the great Margaret Thatcher Library in the School of Information Sciences is home to 103.9 Moi University Radio, abbreviated as MU FM.
