  • Sam Oduor(Linguistics, Media and Communication Class of 2019)5Moi University has and will remain my university of choice. Situated 32 kilometres off Eldoret town, Moi University Main Campus where I study bears a benign cool climate, one favorable for studying just as in the library. Moi University is well structured, having facilities and modern infrastructure such as the Margaret Thatcher Library. It is fantastic, bearing the accreditation as being one of the topmost universities in Kenya and ranked 32 in Africa. Moi is the place to belong. It is a place to nurture your talent and pursue your career. Its security is the best. Moi University is just beautiful, at least if not fantastic. It operates on its own without interference since it is in in a rural place. I joined MU because I felt I had to be there. Our lecturers are the best and our system well programmed. Our motto, like the star-spankled banner of the USA proceeds all: Foundation of Knowledge. Nevertheless, I hate the rural condition of Moi, it seems to be too remote! My life in Moi is very interesting. I enjoy being a true participant in the realm of life here. I really perceive that life in Moi, my stay in the Soweto hostels, the magnificent of all, all those experiences. Students are well brought up, discipline is adamant. Comrades, as we call ourselves, are polite, industrious and manageable. I just like it. I love you Moi University.

  • Lukoye Robert(Bachelor of Science Entrepreneurship Class of 2019)5The Institution is excellent if not perfect in terms of value addition to students. It has a good library and committed lecturers which make learning efficient. However, security and hygiene have been a major concern, most recent being the death of several students at the campus, striking janitors among other thorns in its flesh that might tarnish its image. I therefore appeal to the top management to do something about this before things turn from bad to worse. Thank you.

  • Victor Kipkoech(Education Science Class of 2019)4Generally, moi is one of the best universities in Kenya. It has produced great members of the society. The infrastructure is somehow developed, but congestion is now the major problem. The lecturers are also not much enough thus students face many problems especially in the school of education.

  • Raphael Gitu(Bsc. Strategic Management Class of 2015)4Moi university main campus is located in Kesse, Uasin gishu county. It is a public institution. The campus is surrounded by villages from the local community. The security of the campus is unmanageable due to the frequent trespassing of the local people through the campus. The institution hires its own security staff. The trespassing is more frequent due to the lack of a complete fence around the campus and the vast campus land. The infrastructure of the institution is of high quality but lack maintenance i.e the buildings, some roads and pavements. Due the high intake the campus is experiencing inadequate resources e.g lecture halls and hostels. The academic level of the campus is relatively high though it lacks adequate research books and an adequate library-computer lab for the large student population. Each school has a computer lab but this is not sufficient when compared to the number of students in each school. The library is located in a very strategic place. The campus has various schools i.e education,b/s, H.R, engineering, I.S, arts and social sciences, biological and physical sciences. The institution admits through Jab and also private sponsored students.

  • Magare Bonface(Bachelor of Education Arts Class of 2016)3Moi University is located in Eldoret Kenya. It was the second public university to be set up in Kenya in 1984 through an act of parliament. The university has quite a number of modern infrastructure that are relevant to the academic requirements, this includes;the Margaret thatcher library, the moi university bookshop and well structured classrooms. The university also has a policy that is aimed at providing quality education that meet the needs of the current job market in the Kenyan economy and the world as a whole.

  • Vincent Shayo(Tourism Management Class of 2018)4The School has a conducive welcoming learning environment.There are enough research materials available. Lecturers are usually time-conscious and they are also excellent in delivering their service. They also do involve students in learning by allowing them participate in Problem Based Learning (P.B.L) presentations.It is awesome.There are plenty field trips to necessitate the practical part of student learning.
    The disadvantaged sometimes face a challenge of accessing some university facilities like the washrooms, which are only designed to cater for the strong and healthy; without physical challenges.
