environment the diversity needed to motivate students and
strengthen their social, physical and mental talents. To achieve
these goals the University has established the following:

This society carries out educational activities such as seminars,
talks, lectures. It also organizes lectures in Arabic and Kiswahili
Languages to neighbouring community free of charges.

– Sports Society

This society organizes sports activities and tournaments locally and

students at SUMAIT University. Most of the students’ activities are
organized by SUMAIT University Students Organization (SUSO)
government. The organization is concerned primarily with
promotion of the students’ academic, social and recreational
activities. Students are represented in the main University
governance bodies.
