Daystar University is a Christian Based University that seeks to develop effective managers, professionals and scholars through the integration of Christian faith and holistic learning. The university begun in 1967 as Daystar Communication, set up by an American missionary DR. Donald K. Smith and an African journalist Motsoko Pheko.

"My major is in journalism, and I joined Daystar knowing it is an academic leader in this field, and they haven't proven me wrong. I've gotten to understand journalism at new depths and will be starting my internship soon at one of the leading media houses, all courtesy of Daystar. I'm very excited."
