I just saw the above on a post my friend did on F.B. I have alot of friends from Covenant university, and I am sure they do a fine job in the education department. But it is supposed to be a UNIVERSITY for God's sake, an institution of higher learning, not a freaking 10year old primary school. Like what the hell???
Now I understand that it is meant to be a uni with a religious affiliation, but what is caging curious and hormonally charged adolescents in, not having phones, not talking to boys and taking hiv tests before graduation have to do with education?
The truth which they seem so painfully in denial of, is that if people want to be good they will be, same way if they want to be bad, all the restrictions in the world will not stop them.
One of the most important aspects of university is growing up, getting independent, learning how to cope in the adult world, meeting new people, trying new things, experimenting with alcohol, drugs and all the vices in the world so you can discover who you are as an individual. Uni days have been the most exciting part of my life, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.
None of my cov uni graduates share this sentiment, they all could not wait to leave, and hate re-living the experience.
When they leave the uni, they will still do all these supposed "bad" things so what are they really achieving? Right now, probably the award for the most expulsions in the world.
All these "rules" just promote hypocrisy in an already all to hypocritical society. And if there's anything I hate its hypocrisy, especially religious hypocrisy. I thank God for having liberal parents, who showed me that being religious and being a good person are two completely different things, and the latter is far more important.
Unfortunately, if Nigeria's university weren't so fucked up, we wouldn't have to deal with all this crap. At the rate things are going, in 50 years, everyone who can afford it will go to a private university, just like secondary school, cause they are springing up everywhere.
And if this is the bull they are feeding them, safe to say my kids will be schooling in Ghana.
Just 1 more post till my 100th! Woohooo! Am sure u knw d drill by now!
