Gulu University started a trend right after organizing virtual ball to welcome students into the university. Freshers ball is a party initiated by universities to welcome first year students accordingly. It’s usually characterized by music and performances, dance and food.
Gulu University Guild brought this to the virtual space as they organized the event for the students to attend online. The Gulu university freshers balls featured different artist performances. Some other artists that performed include Eezzy, and Karole Kasita. These performed exceptionally and thus thrilled the viewers.
Gulu University guild president Ayiko Herbert said that the Fresher’s ball is a culture that they needed to keep up with despite restrictions on gatherings.
“We decided to organise a virtual freshers ball to welcome the new students who have joined us even when classes are online. Freshers ball is a culture and we couldn’t miss it again because of covid-19, so we organised the e-concert,” Ayiko told this website.
The event was hosted by NBS TV Youth Voice presenter Stanley Odongo alias MC Ollo.
