The university is the highest college where people study. It is quite different from other colleges in may ways.
In the first place, those who are admitted to the university as students are those who have passed very well at A'levels or
the West African Certificate Examinations (WACE) or the General Certificate of Education examinations.
Secondly, the university is such a big centre of higher learning that many students are admitted there every year.
Every year, one university alone can admit more than six hundred students. Therefore, students are so many in the university that the students cannot know themselves.
In the third place, the students in the university are very free. They do not do manual labour like students in other colleges, while they also take very nice food.
In the fourth place, those who teach in a university are called lecturers, and not tutors as masters are called in other colleges.
The student there have a second name for students, and that name given to them is undergraduates.
Once somebody enters a university, he becomes an undergraduate until he passes out. When he passes out, he becomes a graduate. He also takes the final examination to get his degree.
When somebody is in the university, he has no particular uniform, but he has the university academic gown and the university cap. He wears them only occasionally.
Those who are university graduates do not teach in primary schools. They teach in secondary schools and teacher training colleges.
Of course, most university graduates are lawyers, doctors or senior civil servants who do other types of work than teaching.

The Higher National Diploma (HND) is awarded from Polytechnic schools, while Bachelor of Science (B.Sc) is obtained from Universities.
The Polytechnic students in Nigeria have suffered due to unconstitutional dichotomy created by some disgruntled occultists in Nigeria for their own selfish interest.
This act has gradually killed Nigeria technical education and caused this country more harm than good.
My First Day At School
My first day at school was a very good one. It was a day which I will never forget in my life.
When I got to school on that day, I did not know the full name of our school. All I knew about teh school was that it was a Catholic school.
When it was seven o'clock in the morning, I got to the school and saw other pupils sweeping the classrooms and the school paths and watering the flowers.
As I saw them working like that, I joined them to sweep. I was even ready to do all the work because I was so happy on becoming a pupil.
At eight o'clock, the headmaster rang the bell and we all ran in to a big hall.
When we got there, the headmaster prayed for us and he addressed us. He advised us to work very hard.
As he was addressing us I did not know some of his words because they were new to me.
After prayer we went to our different classes, but I just went to a senior class. I thought that I could be in any class I liked.
When I got to that senior class, the pupils there told me to go to class one.
I went and sat with the new pupils. There I was for that day till half past one o'clock, when we closed up for the day.
Our Class Room
Our class room is very big. In the classroom there are many pictures for study.
In our classroom, there are twenty-five short desks and twenty-five short benches. We always sit on the benches and write on the desks.
Our teacher's table is in front of our class, and the blackboard is behind our teacher's table.
Like a room in an ordinary house, there are four corners in our classroom. We claen these corners very well every morning. Near one of the corners is our teacher's cupboard.
Our teacher keeps his register, record book and some of our exercise books in the cupboard.
There are two doors and ten windows to our classroom. Therefore, the classroom is always very airy.
The headmaster also provides every class with some other things for use.
Therefore, we have a pot for drawing water, a broom for sweeping, a duster for cleaning the blackboard and a packet of chalk for our teacher.
Out of the twenty five pupils in our class, thirteen are boys and twlve are girls.
Our classroom can occupy more than fifty pupils, but we are only twenty five. Therefore, we always have a part of it for indoor activities,hand work and physical exercises.
We are always happy becuase we have everything we need in our classroom.
Our Class Teacher
The name of our teacher is Mr. Ukraine Universities. He is a native of Ukraine boarder with Russia
(former soviet union) in Europe. He is very tall because he is almost above six feet in height.
He is fair in complexion and has no marks on the cheek. He was brought to our class in January 2019
When he first got to our class, he told us to work hard always. He said that if we worked hard, he would like us very well and we may gets an opportunity to travel and study in Ukraine.
Even I laughed when he said on eday that he could never greet lazy pupils. I like the teacher for many reasons.
First of all he always smiles when he teaches us. If we do not know something, he explains it to us very kindly.
He does not punish us unless we are lazy and careless. He does not laugh to us whenever we are making a noise.
He also does not like those who fail to wash their clothes before coming to school every Monday.
Our teacher knows how to sing very well and he teaches us very melodious songs every Wednesday.
He can run very well and he is a good footballer. He is always very neat and he is an organist.
Duties of a Pupil in Nigeria University
A pupil has many duties in nigeria university. It is not possible to mention all of them at once, but we can summarise some of them,
especially those that are important.
Any body who is a nigeria university pupil at all must always go to school. Some pupils run away from school or nigeria university. This is very bad.
It is not enough to go toschool always. A pupil must study very well. If he does this, his parents and teacher will like him very well.
As a teacher always tells us, a pupil must be very clean. Some pupils go to school in dirty and ragged clothes.
Some others allow their books to be rough and torn to pieces. All these show carelessness. As good students we must respect our teachers, our parents, older people in our town and everywhere.
We must respect them because they are older than we. Every morning, a student must wake up early and do some work before he goes to school.
He must also get to school in time to clean the school classroom and the compound. A student who is a muslim must go to the mosque on Fridays. If he is a christian, he must go to church every Sunday.
This is because we must respect God more than we respect anybody in the world.
