The 2017 Ghana National History Day (GNHD) was marked on the theme, "Taking a Stand in History". The idea is to make history more engaging and help increase interest in knowing our past as Ghanaians. This theme helped participants to think about people, ideas and events that indicate a stand taken in the past, how relevant it is for history and what lessons can be learnt for the future. The main activities included a national history contest and sensitization on the relevance of history.

The Registrar of the University of Education, Winneba, Dr. C.Y. Akwaa-Mensah advised students not to copy if they wanted to succeed in life.
He urged them to carve a niche for themselves and develop personal brands if they wanted to excel in their endeavours. He noted “you don’t need to copy if you want to succeed. You need to carve a niche for yourself." In his view, there was no point for one to imitate another person, to be just like the person, if they could be finer versions of themselves.
The University Library is pleased to announce the extension of its opening hours at the Winneba Campus as part of its effort to give enhanced services to patrons.
This has become necessary as a result of several requests from some students to the Library to extend the opening hours because of the limited seating capacity in the Library. The new arrangement means that students would have more time to use the resources of the Library.
We hope that our patrons would continue to take advantage of the extended opening hours as they are doing now.
