16 Types Of Students You’ll Find In Any Nigerian Universities by dontro(m): 7:17am On Feb 15
1. The rich kids

These group of students are usually from very wealthy homes. They have all the latest gadgets, latest outfits, loads of provisions and their bank alerts are usually very heavy.

They speak so well, nice skin, slay effortlessly without even knowing it, they smell “Money“, you can even tell they’re rich from a distance. They make you want to ask your parents some very important questions.

They either just came in from the abroad or will leave for the abroad anytime soon. Sometimes, you wonder why they’re even living in the school hostel or why they agreed to school in Nigeria in the first place.

These set of students are the reason most weak students have low self-esteem.


2. The ‘Wanna Be’s


These students struggle so hard to belong. You can tell from their fake accents and fashion sense. They want to be classy by all means.

They can spend their last card on outfits and gadgets to move with the rich kids. They overdress sometimes. These don’t dress for the occasion, they dress ‘out of‘ the occasion, just so you can notice them.

They seize every opportunity to extort from their parents and family members. They accuse their parents of things they don’t have and places they have never been to. They can even photoshop themselves inside a plane or a place in the abroad just to prove their point.

3. The advisers

These set of students always have a word of advice or two for everyone around them. They always lecture fellow students, especially freshers on what to do and not do on campus.

they can call you in the middle of the night to tell you that the cloth you wore to class was exposing your cleavage, or to tell you that the lecturers in the department are not happy with you.

The ones in the hostel will tell you to stop moving with your boyfriend /girlfriend because your parents won’t be happy if they find out. They want to know everything about you and how

They are more like the elders of the campus and the annoying thing is that you can never correct or advise them. Who are you to advise the wisest of them all?

4. The cooks

These students came to school to cook. They have a recipe for every meal. They don’t cook like normal students. They have all the kitchen utensils in their cupboard; blender, mortar, fruit squeezer, even microwave.

They live a triangular life – from the classroom to the market, and back to their kitchen. They wake up early to cook and even take to class. One would wonder if they’re real students or chefs-in-training.

They cook away their time in school. Saturdays and Sundays are their best days. They punish hungry students with aromas of food. They are ready to cook any meal they see on the internet so long as they don’t have to travel overseas to get the ingredients.

These have the happiest set of friends. Who doesn’t love good meals?

5. The rumour-mongers

These group of students know about every activity happening in and around the school. They always have new gist. Nothing happens without their knowledge.

They know everyone’s boyfriend/girlfriend, how they met and who loves the other more. They have friends in high places. They tell you about things that are about to happen in school, how they will happen and why they will happen. They make you wonder if you’re blind or deaf because they hear and see it all.

If any news circulates without their knowledge, the story is either fake or stale. They just have to know first.

6. The wailers

These group of students wear complaints like clothes. They are always complaining about the world. They have a whole truck of sad stories to tell. If you think you’re suffering, wait till they open their mouth to gist you. They gist whoever cares to listen, even if they just met you. The ear that listens could be a helping hand, who knows?

They love pity! they tell you how they haven’t eaten for months, how they trekked from Lagos to Sokoto, how they live under the bridge, how their uncles took away all they had, how they drink garri with salt and they even had to take turns in drinking it because their dad’s last card was #50, how they feel like dying. After all, the world seems to be against them, how everything bad has happened to them, the only thing left is death. Haba!

They do suffering competition like they have a prize to win. They are permanently broke, they expect their friends to always understand and buy stuff for them. If you see them with a nice outfit or shoe, don’t bother asking, it’s always a hand-me-down or probably borrowed, they can only afford to ‘breathe’.

Most times you wonder who pays their school fees. It doesn’t look like they’ve smelt that kind of money all their life.

Very funny:

"Some lecturers even borrow books from them, that’s the height of it.

These students are the readers of tomorrow. They read against future degrees. They can read 10-20 textbooks for just one course so that they can embarrass their lecturers with points in the exam hall."
