    Obafemi awolowo university Ife

    Obafemi Awolowo University is one of the top universities in Nigeria, established with the name University of IFE, later changed to Obafemi Awolowo. OAU is one of the competitive schools in Nigeria, so securing admission is very hard. And the lecturers are very strict when it comes to marking and results. There’s enough facilities and good buildings with a good and conducive environment for learning. The school hostel is available for students to stay in.

    An all round education

    I studied French as a Foreign Language. It was a course that exposed me to a culture, beliefs, civilization and people different from ours in Africa. I love studying French as it is a known fact that language is life and the French will like and respect you more once you’re able to communicate in their language. However, I do not like the fact that some lecturers were unnecessarily mean and made learning difficult and uninteresting.
    The university as a whole is a true citadel of learning as it does not only make you a master of your subject but also brings culture and norms closer to you and helps you become an intelligent, smart, hardworking and civilized human being.
    I would like to see students being rewarded according to how hard they have worked and the school to reduce the rate of internal riots and strikes so that the academic calendar will not be disrupted.
    It is a school that helps to engage students both socially and academically. So students have fun while learning and it is worth recommending to others. It is also recognized internationally as it has produced students that have made positive impacts all over the world. This is why I know that it has given me a great foundation that has helped me to be a great teacher and an administrator today.

    People I met and the environment

    It was a wonderful experience. I met a lot of people and grew myself. The system, in general, was not all encouraging, but enough leeway was given to help students become more independent, outspoken and relevant in society.

    Highly rated school in Nigeria

    Obafemi Awolowo University is an outstanding institution among her peers in Nigeria. There is a lot to write about OAU if I am chanced to write a book on it. The institution is academically sound as there are professionals available to pass on knowledge to students in every field of study available in the school. The social activities on campus are minimal as it does not have a negative effect on learning activities.
    There is a high level of security and a low level of corruption within the school premises. The school has gained her glory right from her establishments and the glory is still there and will continue to be there forever.
    Also, there is enough accommodation for students who are willing to stay on campus with infrastructural facilities to make life easier and enjoyable for them.

    Life as an OAU studen

    OAU has always been one of the greatest universities in Nigeria and I must say, I enjoyed every bit of my study there. Though it wasn’t a smooth ride all the way those bad days I experienced there kinda like prepared me ahead of the real-life situations outside school. I miss OAU so much! The lecturers and their unique ways of instilling knowledge into the students coupled with the culture OAU as a school puts in every student directly and indirectly; the different kinds of students we have on campus: the funny, serious, partly-serious, unserious but serious ones! The almighty Awo hall and its boys! The ‘ârò’ every OAU student must know by fire by force! Lol! The secured environment and how you can walk freely anywhere on campus at any time of the day and night without fear! Students walking fast and running for classes! The sweet school anthem we sing with pride yunno! Lol
    I miss everything about OAU. That school will humble you no matter who you think you are! Unending love I have for OAU! Of the greatest Ife!

    Satisfactory

    One of the best tertiary institutions to attend in Nigeria. They have vast, knowledgeable and experienced lecturers who know how best to disseminate their knowledge. The frequent strikes are a turn off tho.

    OAU and I

    Obafemi Awolowo University is one of the best 10 universities in Nigeria. When I was a student, OAU was the number one University. Getting into Pharmacy was a childhood dream that came true. I enjoyed every bit of it despite the inadequacies in laboratory facilities. I had the best Professors in Nigeria with excellent research records. To have stayed on Africa’s most beautiful campus was an experience I will never forget. The student life was a rugged one but thanks to the current VC that had renovated every hostel for students’ convenience. The phrase “For learning and culture, sports and struggle” in the school anthem isn’t a joke. OAU is internationally recognized with hundreds of international students studying there and I am hoping that Nigerian Federal Government will provide all necessary facilities to enable OAU to be the best in Africa and one of the best 100 globally. As a Pharmacy graduate of OAU, I have no issue securing a job and OAU is a school I will always recommend to prospective undergraduates.

    Bittersweet experience

    My experience at Obafemi Awolowo University was somewhat bittersweet. The campus is quite beautiful and well planned and you can see structures with first-class architectural design howbeit lie in near ruins state.

    My opinion

    The record states that Obafemi Awolowo University is one of the best schools in the country and I totally agree. However, that doesn’t mean it is without flaws.
    During my first year, 4000 students received lectures in a 1000 capacity classroom, so the way out was to either read up on your own or contact a coursemate who could help. But I guess it’s just the Nigeria factor. Well, the situation changed in year 2 when I started taking my departmental courses (pharmacy courses), no crowded classes, there is a good relationship between students and lecturers and most facilities required for practicals are available.
    This is not the case in all other departments as some of my friends would always complain about these things.
    Speaking of security, OAU is a very safe school! Hardly would u hear of cases of kidnap, rape or theft. The students are very conscious and accommodating.
    One thing I love so much about the school is how you can move about at any time of the night without the fear of being harmed or robbed.
    I think I should state that OAU does not only encourage academics, it also promotes extracurricular activities, in case you are thinking it’s a school for nerds😃.
    It’s a school you should consider!
