So it’s almost time for these freshmen to be enrolled for different courses at the various institutions they applied to and we tend to give you a short piece on what “they” never really tell you about campus coz most of these guys travel from whichever corner of origin they hail and come to campus expecting a crystal stair.
Much as you are promised lots of freedom, both from your parents and the hectic routine that you were subjected to back in high school, parties, sex, drugs among others, campus can be a “pain in the ass” at times. Read below, expect and prepare for them disasters.
- Course Overload
Most of these relatives or friends giving you “first hand” tips about campus never state the work overload that comes with various courses. Now like at UCU, the law class has a tight up schedule, a timetable that runs from 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday coupled with abrupt tests, course works and remedial tests. This is something you’ll come in blind too.
Most of y’all are never told about the reality of heart breaks and friend zones but behold, welcome to campus where you will “push out” with a babe or guy forever then they leave you for greener grass. Our research infact reflects heartbreaks as the major causes of many failures.
Eh! Again they will forget to tell you about the possibility and infact reality of retaking various course units at worst getting a “dead year”. Campus is no different from any other institution of learning, failure is a reality which leads us to the next tip.
- Sex for marks
Reference is made to the recent MAK incidents where lecturers demand for sex from students to save them the embarrassments of failure but my brother or sister reading this piece, know that these desperate students will do anything to save their semesters even if it means “giving it up” for the grades. Our sisters are the targets at large in particular.
- Pregnancies and Abortions
You will infact hear them saying mbu “at campus there’s lots of sex” but they will not tell you what can happen if you mess up, this specific tip is as regards awareness. You will go in live and contract diseases on top of pregnancies. Be safe, play it safe fam. Abortions are some of the causes of deaths at campus for our sisters.
- Kayasi is real!
They say that one should live within their means but Kayasi is something no one will ever jazz about when you ask them about campus. In MAK, guys will sell all their possessions ranging from music systems to fridges and television screens but at MUBS, its worse, babes will “give leg” for supper or lunch. Despite all the plans one can make for their money, the inevitable always hits and one should have a contingency resolution when this happens.
So y’all stay woke and remember that campus will never be a smooth ride, you gotta hustle your way through.
