Nigerian university life isn’t all fun and games.

University is a really serious time in the life of any student. If you’re Nigerian, a university is much more than a serious period in your life. It is the period where you leave all your childhood behind and become an adult.

Nigerian universities view themselves as breeding grounds for academically and morally sound youth. While the university may not teach you morals, the hostel life involved will.
