12 Things That Will Make Sense To Only University Of Ibadan Students

September 18, 2020

University of Ibadan is the first university and one of the most popular universities in Nigeria. This post is for everyone who studied or is currently studying at the university.

1. University of Ibadan students, when the National Universities Commission and Times Higher Education release their rankings

First and the best!

2. When the Union Bank ATM by the senate building swallows your card

Na me fuck up.

3. When Indy and Zik boys see girls passing their hostels 

Especially D-block boys in Zik and C-block boys in Indy.

4. When you find out that you only need to know the last line of the school anthem

“For a mind that knows is a mind that’s free” is the only line that matters, tbh.

5. When you meet a linguistic student who hasn’t learned the school anthem 

Has uncle Demola stopped teaching Lin 141?

6. When the session is about to end and the school hasn’t gone on strike

This doesn’t feel right.

7. How returning students look at male freshers making evening rounds at Queens, Idia, and Awo halls

University of Ibadan

Been there, done that. And you should know that it won’t work out

8. What the study area inside catholic church compound looks like when there is no light in school

The struggle.

9. What Faculty of Tech and Faculty of Agric look like at night

University of Ibadan

Free and relatively fast Wifi will never go out of demand

10. Klazz restaurant at Tedder hall and queues

What’s that cheesy slogan again — come to Klazz before you go to class?

11. What Zik boys swear they look like during their Common Pot

The beans sometimes slap, though.

12. Heritage Park during the day VS Heritage Park at night 

University of Ibadan

We love a multifaceted location.
