As the paragon of learning in the country, it is of great importance that the prolific writings of great minds in the University are sought out and brought to light for exposure and as references for generations to come. Sadly, that has not been the case. Over the years, many literary works of artistic minds in the University have been buried within the cesspool of WhatsApp group chats and denied the opportunity to be savored and appreciated by similarly artistic minds.
An end needs to be brought to such a practice. To accomplish that and our promise to the student body, the University of the Students’ Union has put in place a small measure as a step in the right direction. We call it ‘The Scribes’. It is a page on the Union’s website dedicated to all our writers within the University. It would not only serve the function of exposing our literal talents to the rest of the country and the world at large, but serve also as a record of the talents that have passed through the University.
The Union has called on all students of the university of the Gambia to publish their articles on the UTGSU website.
