The University of Lagos is one of the largest Colleges in Lagos, in terms of it’s Land Mass and the amount of Courses available for studying under it, with this comes it’s variety of Students studying in the School.
In this article we will be looking at all the types of students in Unilag
So in no particular order, here are the different students you would find in Unilag.
1) THE SCHOLARS
These are the people in the School whose ultimate focus and priority is their books. You hardly find them not doing well in any course they are offering. They are the people that everyone goes to for explanation in any course they have difficulty in. They are always looking for more materials to learn from. Some people in the department see as “over do”. This set of students are mostly first class students.
2) THE UNDERCOVER SCHOLARS
These ones are somewhat deceptive, they portray themselves as the “I don’t care students” but only the wise ones know that they are a part of the Scholars group of people, as they always come out with good results in their tests and exams. Most of them also come out with a First Class at the end of each semester. No matter how much you put it to them that they are scholars they won’t agree with you.
3) THE LIBRARIANS
These are the people who are mostly found in the Library, reading, they prefer the comfort of The Library to the comfort of their rooms for reading. They are referred to as The Scholars and are at most times truly Scholars. These people consider you not having the infamous Unilag Library card as an abomination.
4) THE CHILDREN OF GOD
These are the people in the department who have chosen not to loose their focus of God, in school. You would always find them engaging in conversations about God to people in their department or faculty, or on their WhatsApp status. Their commitment to their fellowships and evangelism is admirable. You hardly find these students in any worldly gathering in school.
5) THE INQUISITIVE STUDENTS
These are the people who do not mind dragging the class, no matter how long it has been running for. They always have one or two questions to ask the lecturer which leads to the rest of the class giving them bad eyes. They always want to learn more from the lecturer.
6) THE SEASONAL STUDENTS
These are the Students who you hardly see in their department, faculty or class, sometimes you forget that they are your coursemates. This is always due to the fact that they live far away, they may be under The “Celebrity Students Group”, the ” I don’t care Students Group”, or they might be people who have part-time jobs on the side.
7) THE CELEBRITY STUDENTS
These people sometimes fall under “The Fashionista Students” of Unilag. They are the people who have found their way into the entertainment industry. They are sometimes influencers, actors, musicians or models. Everyone wants to be their friend, and this always leads to them never being in a lack of who to sign attendance for them, due to the fact that most of them are also seasonal students.
8) THE PUNCTUAL STUDENTS
These are the people who are always in class, come rain or sunshine. Their names are always present on the attendance list and they normally get many requests from people to help sign attendance for them. Their notes are always complete and due to this it sometimes gets stolen.
9) THE FASHIONISTA STUDENTS
These people are known for making the walking grounds of Unilag their runway. They dress like they are paid to look good in class. They sometimes fall under the “Seasonal and Celebrity Students”. All eyes are always on them.
10) THE I DON’T CARE STUDENTS
These are the students who are just in Unilag to live life. They don’t allow the hulabulu of their academics to worry or stress them . They are most times found under the Seasonal Students Group.
