Consequently, students most especially freshers have been resuming school with great joy and happiness. The move on the ground, made our correspondent interview some students on how they have been feeling here on campus.
“The journey from Lagos down to this place is like hell because it wasn’t that easy for us to sit for about 8hours inside the bs in the hope of getting to the Akungba community which is the one hosting our institution (Adekunle Ajasin University),” says one of the students.
Another student, Ayodele Zeacheaus said, “I coming to this school is a thing Joy because I was admitted into the course of my choice and the university community and the hosting community have been so favourable as there have been no casualties ever since I came around.”
In the same vein, Peter Faith said, “I have only used days in this school though I haven’t been attending lectures but have been able to meet some of my coursemates and some other friends.”
Oluwferanmi Faith who was admitted into the department of Sociology said, “I am thankful to God that I was admitted into this school and am already right here in Akungba. Have been able to meet my departmental President in person and he sounding favourable to me and I hope the lecturers should also be friendly as the departmental president.”
Another fresh student, Tofunmi said, “Though the registration wasn’t that easy and his kind of hectic for some of us.”
She later pointed out that the major challenges she has been passing so far are the weather climate, she later explained that it hasn’t been favourable to her that the cold is much and have affected her health negatively.
Opeyemi Oluwaseun said the registration was successful even though it takes hours before the server responded well.
Meanwhile, for we not to leave the returning student aside, we were able to meet the president-elect of Sociology. Adeleke Theophanous also known as Toptea said, “I thank God for the arrival of the student here on campus and he further said the safe trip to others who are yet to resume to campus.
“Our aim as departmental president is to make sure we the new student on the right path.”
With the statistics on the ground, we can deduce that majority of the returning students are yet to resume campus because they lamented that the holiday which the school management gave to them was short and they needed enough time to rest so that they regain their lost strength.
The beginning of a new session puts joy in the face of the students, most especially as the new student resumes to campus. The excitement was seen in the face of freshers because this serves as revenue of exposing them to another academic environment of learning, which is mostly known and referred to as a higher institution.
