Top 7 Things To Know Before Going To The University by 24hoursreporter: 4:58pm On Sep 09, 2018
The University is a different ball game entirely. As a matter of fact, things will be entirely different once you step into the campus environment. Most new students come onboard with the same secondary school mentality, thus end up having serious issues. Therefore this article will focus on the top 7 things to know before going to the University.

If you focus on this article, you will not have challenges as a new student in any University, home and abroad.

Top 7 Things To Know Before Going To The University

#1. There Are Countless Brilliant Students Out There

One of the things to Know before going to the University is acknowledging the fact that there are countless students out there. That you were the best in your secondary doesn’t mean that you will be the best in your University.

So, bear in mind that you may not be among the best 100 students. But if you are hardworking, you will definitely be among the best.

#2. Never Discriminate Against Anybody


Ordinarily, the University houses people from different culture, religion, and ethnic groups. As a rule, never discriminate against anybody in any higher institution.

Treat people nicely with respect and try to learn from their culture, ethnic group, and more importantly religion. After all, no knowledge is waste.

#3. You Make Your Own Choice

At the University, you have to make your own choice. While it is very good to be free, it also has its negative side. As a matter of fact, freedom of choice has made many new students go astray in the University.

So, make your choice wisely, because this could either make or mar you in the University.

#4. Never Forget Your Primary Reason Of Being In School

One of the most important things to know before going to the University is your primary purpose. There are several distractions on campus that most students easily lose focus.

While it is good to involve in social activities on campus, never do that at the expense of your studies. At all time, your studies must be your top priority and never allow anything to replace this.

Whenever you class clashes with a social function on campus, always consider your studies first. This is because all your effort in the University will be as good as useless if you can’t get your result at the end of the day.

#5. Never Forget Your Family

Your family is everything, never forget them while in school. As a matter of fact, try to call them and discuss school stress with them. This will definitely ease your stress and gives you the motivation to study harder.

#6. Don’t Go Home Too Frequently

As a rule, don’t go home too frequently except it is extremely necessary. This is an area most people get it wrong. In fact, this is one of the most important things to know before going to the University.

Focus more on your studies and travel during holidays, except it is exceptionally necessary to be at home.

#7. Learn To Cook A Few Simple Meal

This is with no doubt one of the things to know before going to the University. Your days on campus will be hell if you don’t know how to cook.

So, learn how to cook noodles, spaghetti, and some other simple meals. This will definitely help in the long run.

Times have changed and u surely need to add to it.

The most important thing to note is that, the University will not make u rich or get u employed just by good grades but finding a way to practicalize ur discipline.
If u are an auto/mechanical engineer, work with mechanics during hols or spare time, accountant move closer to the auditors or accounting company, civil engr go to sites, computer science go comp village or any computer school, lawyers work for free with Chambers etc and if u are studying courses like sociology, psychology and all those course that has no relevance in Nigeria, kindly learn a trade or two.

So that by the time u are done, u are able to stand on ur own or have an extra edge in the extremely over saturated labour market.

The university should be a place where they teach u practical knowledge of what u need to survive in the real life world, but in Nigeria it's a place where they show u theoretical knowledge with outdated books.

The only people that gets automatic employment are doctors. And it's because all they do is practicals on live patients and corpses.
Hence, whatever u do, get out there and get the relevant practical knowledge.

Good morning all

Its a great day

Today is the Start of the school session in many schools. Therefore it's time to pay fees, do business and improve lives.

Its also a time to pray. Please spare a prayer for our school system

1. Pray that our schools are protected. No breach this year
2. Pray that learning will be impactful and effective. That education achievement will be significant and obvious

3. Pray for all stakeholders... Teachers, headteachers, care givers, support staff, school owners. That they will be focussed

4. Pray for parents. For finances to pay fees. For wisdom to devote time to support their children's education

5. Pray for government. Particularly for all the government officials in education who don't seem to know what to do.

6. Pray for Leah Sharibu, the chibok girls. Let's pray that never again will such happen

7. Pray that we shall all be alive with our children to celebrate the end of this session in joy, health and bliss.

Its a season for your child to blossom in school. Fear not, your child is a genius
