The Acting President of the William V.S. Tubman University (TU) in Harper, Maryland County, Dr. Elizabeth Carbajosa, has said the lack of buses was hindering movement of students at the university. Dr. Carbajosa disclosed that the university, which has an enrollment of over 800 students, has only one 30-seater bus.
She made the statement recently when a 20-member re-union delegation of Marylanders from the United States paid a visit to the university campus.
The University head explained that the lack of transportation is affecting mainly students that live in Pleebo, the commercial capital of Maryland County, which is 12 miles away from Harper.
She also stressed the need to reconstruct dormitories on the campus of the university that were damaged during the 14-year civil conflict.
Dr. Carbajosa noted that when the dormitories are rehabilitated there will be enough space to accommodate the influx of students from across the country.
She has therefore appealed to the Ministry of Education to help find solutions to the problems of transportation and repair of dormitories at the Tubman University.
