This Guy’s NYSC Experience Will Make You Want To Serve!

January 11, 2016
We often start our NYSC year wishing that it would end right from the beginning. But all who have served will agree that the highlight of the service year is always the Orientation Camp. Oyin Oludipe who is a graduate of Babcock University shared his Camp experience in pictures on Facebook. Oyin, who is a Batch B 2015 corp member serving in Ogun state, captured in 21 pictures some of the occurrences that makes it memorable. What makes his unique are the  tags on his pictures. They are so beautiful it’ll make you wonder if it’s the same NYSC you did, and if you haven’t served already, it’ll make you want to serve your country!
