St. Augustine’s Alumni Gift 76 Beds to Alma Mater

by Victor Adetimilehin


In an exemplary display of generosity, the APSU ’88 Year Group of St. Augustine’s College in Cape Coast has embarked on a heartwarming initiative by donating a substantial number of Seventy-six (76) beds to their beloved Alma Mater. This benevolent act, driven by the group’s unwavering commitment to giving back, aims to address and rectify the dire living conditions identified in certain dormitories on the campus.

Upon learning of the alarming conditions in selected houses, the 1988/90 Year Group swiftly mobilized and raised funds to procure the beds. Their primary objective is to significantly enhance students’ comfort and well-being, creating a lasting impact on the overall campus life experience. This act of kindness goes beyond a simple donation; it represents a transformative effort to foster an environment conducive to learning and personal growth.

The bunk bed donation is a strategic effort to not only improve on-campus living conditions but also to augment the limited dormitory amenities. The APSU ’88 Year Group envisions that this act of generosity will not only encourage social interactions but also create stronger connections among students, fostering a more inclusive and supportive campus atmosphere.

Beyond the immediate comfort provided by the beds, the donation aims to facilitate improved living arrangements for students. By contributing to an environment that supports academic success and personal development, the APSU ’88 Year Group believes they are sowing the seeds for a brighter future for the current generation of students.

The presentation of these beds aligns with the 2nd Homecoming of the APSU ’88 Year Group, a special occasion marking 40 years since they graduated from St. Augustine’s College. The homecoming, held from October 26 to 29, brought together alumni from the APSU Class of ’88/90 to celebrate shared experiences and accomplishments.

During the homecoming event, the old students organized various activities, including career guidance sessions, a health walk, presentations on prostate cancer, and a thanksgiving mass. The culmination of these activities, the bed donation, not only enhances the physical aspects of campus life but also strengthens the bond between past and present students.

This act of generosity not only transforms the immediate living conditions of current students but also establishes a legacy of compassion and commitment to alma mater. It stands as a testament to the enduring spirit of St. Augustine’s alumni, demonstrating the positive impact that collective efforts can have on educational institutions.
