1. USE BICYCLE BODA BODAS.
As they travel to and from their campus,
it takes these intellectuals no effort to pay 500= and less
for a ride on a bicycle boda boda straight to their areas of residence normally kilometres away from the campus.
2. TAKE IRISH POTATOES AND ‘ENTURIRE’ ON OUTINGS
Strange as it may appear, Irish potatoes are a great delicacy in
Kabale. Campus girls these ends feed on chips on a daily. In fact one can barely finish chips worth shs1,000. It’s too much. This meal is completed with a local brew known as enturire.
3.SPEAK RUKIIGA 24|7
Once in Kabale varsity, you may not distinguish a campuser from a non teaching staff since both use a lot of Rukiiga. To make it worse, they even ask questions during lectures in Rukiiga.
4. DRESS IN GUM BOOTS AT CAMPUS.
Gumboots are moccasins at this varsity. It is not a surprise to meet students wearing gumboots in lecture rooms. The main excuse they give for that is that it is hard
to predict when it’ll rain.
5. HAVE ACCOUNTS ON MOBILE MONEY
Most of these campusers don’t know how an ATM machine looks like. but
they can lead you to the furthest Mobile Money shop. They are mostly
withdrawing instead of depositing.
6.USE OF VULGAR PICK UP LINES
Kabale University students feel the only way to be romantic is by using strong and swear words like “mbwa we” literally meaning ‘you dog’ to praise girls or even boys. Other Common statements coudn’t be written here, jeez!
7. LISTENING TO LOCAL MUSIC AND WATCHING TRANSLATED MOVIES:
The playlists of most students in Kabale University will feature songs from
Eagles Production, Lady Mariam, T-bro among other prominent local
artistes. The movies highly cherished are the Bukedde T.V and T.V West
type that are translated to the end.
8. LATE NIGHT CALLS
Once you receive a late phone call at around 2:00 am in the night,
know it is from a Kabale campuser, reason, 99% discount is active.
9. READING BOOKS INTENSIVELY
Campus life should mean limited reading of books. However, it is a
different case with Kabale varsity students. These guys bang winter from the beginning of the semester till the end. yamawe!!
10. USING FACEBOOK ZERO.
Photo-related status updates on facebook won’t be appreciated by campusers
in Kabale as they cannot read them. Things like twitter, instagram,
whatsapp are unheard of.
