Adekunle Ajasin University Akungba-Akoko (AAUA) Students like many other well-meaning Nigerian students in public universities have been at home for over nine months due to COVID-19 outbreak that has caused the pause in academic activities. AAUA INSIDER correspondent, Williams Adebowale, engaged AAUA students on what they missed about school.
Here are their views
Olusola Rolake George, a 300 level law student in Adekunle Ajasin University.
Hmmmm! School for me is always a combination of education and fun, the break was abrupt, I sincerely miss the urge to read for upcoming classes day in day out, the productivity that comes with school life and the family I have created for myself out of friends in school.

Lol. I missed going out to events at OBJ hall, missed those memories of trekking from my house to Awolowo hall, when lectures would not hold, I missed my fellowship, the only gathering that keeps me committed to Christ, I miss my crazy friends and my villa mates ( I missed opening their pots of soup). I missed night classes, I really missed a lot of things I wish they all come back to be in a short time
Monisola Akomolafe popularly known as Minie creations, 300 level Linguistics student
I miss my space, my room in particular; my room is my shop, bakery and my safe zone.
Well. For me, it’s the circle of friends that comes with diverse opportunities to grow, Impact, solve problems and represent. The challenges that come with them too. It’s inevitable
I don’t think a paragraph would be enough if I start to mention what I’ve missed since we left school about 7 months ago, please pardon me, I’ve missed a lot. I miss classes. I miss the proud feeling of actually doing really well in an exam or test. I miss not having the pressure of thinking of what to wear every morning
I miss school farm. I miss fellowship (NIFES). I miss my friends, lecturers
I miss meetings of this and that. I miss cooking my almighty beans. I miss sport complex. That is it, just to mention a few.

I miss engaging my friends in studying together, attending lectures. I miss the team structuring
Olajide Franklin, a 200 level student of Law
I miss the stress getting to my room tired and just sleeping with dinner, I miss freedom. You know Nigerian parents. 6 o clock that have started calling you where are you. I miss my friends, especially my best friend.
