Hello aspirant, keep praying and believing the best. If you see your name on the admission list for Unilorin, good for you! When you do officially become a fresher, you’ll need some things to makes the first 3 weeks or so bearable. Here’s a list f things you should check off before boarding a bus to Ilorin, Kwara state.
1. Your documents:
a. Original birth certificate
b. Original O’level result
c. JAMB result (coloured)
d. Admission letter
e. Post UTME result slip
d. State of origin certificate
f. Passport with red background (make 12)
g. Admission status printout
2. Prayers: lots of it, because first few weeks of resumption are always hectic.
3. Face caps: Ilorin sun is in another level, protect your face, or it will darken beyond your belief.
4. Comfoetablw shoes: you’re going to be doing a lot of walking from bank to Level Adviser’s office, to Faculty Offucers office , to Cyber cafe, and finally school park when you’re heading home if you choose off-campus accommodation. Mind you, Unilorin is BIG. So, stock up on what won’t give you blisters.
5. Old textbooks that are relevant to your course of study: you might not get textbooks on time and you’ll need to be reading. Lecturers won’t listen to “We’ve not be given textbook” oh.
6. Cotton shirts: the heat can be unbearable, and you’ll need a fabric that can absorb perspiration.
7. Mobile phone/laptop: well, if you don’t already have a mobile phone, convince your parents to get you one before resuming, because you’ll need it to browse out tons of assignments, group work, download necessary PDFs and communication purposes. Without a phone, you’ll miss out on information that will be announced in your departmental group chat (s).
8. Active bank account & ATM card: if you don’t already own one. I’ll advise you to open an account with banks that aren’t overly popular e.g FCMB, because GTB and the others are always too crowded.
9. Strength: I’m not joking. Make sure you’re healthy before you resume (eat well now that you can), because you’ll face souch stress e.g queueing for bus till your legs go numb.
10. Provision: for the first few weeks, you may not have time to cook, especially when you have 8 a.m lectures. Never skip breakfast, ever.
What else do you think should be on the list?
