Today's Graduation Ceremony has a unique celebratory aspect to it – it marks 65 years of graduations at Egerton. It was on 22 November 1951 that the first graduands were released into the world of agricultural work. The ceremony was an important milestone in the institution's history of quality training which started in 1939 and continues to this day.

The value of a university does not reside simply in the experience that its students undergo in the lecture halls or through their participation in extracurricular activities. Nor is it to be found exclusively in the buildings or walkways that make up the university as a campus, however glamorous or awesome those structures may be.
In the course of the development of any cultural institution that is worth its name, there are invariably sign posts that it leaves behind. The sign posts attest to its most important achievements and the contributions it has made to society. th The 80 anniversary of Egerton University, which we are celebrating this year, is such a sign post. The anniversary caps all the efforts that Egerton has put into establishing itself as the exemplary institution of higher learning that it is recognised to be today.
