The Deputy Vice-Chancellor, Federal University, Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), Prof. Abayomi Fasina, on Monday warned new students of the institution against engaging in anti-social activities capable of truncating their future.
Fasina, who gave the advice during the orientation programme organised for the fresh students in Oye-Ekiti, also urged them to focus on their studies and not to disappoint their parents.
He further advised the students to put in place a daily reading schedule and ensure that they achieved all the listed activities effectively.
“I welcome all the fresh students to our university; my advice for you is that you should be hard working and be focused right from the day of matriculation.
“For a student to come out with first class or second class upper, such student must put away all forms of distractions such as boyfriends, girlfriends, chatting on phone and attending parties,” he said.
Fasina said that all the facilities needed to enhance their academic performance had been provided.
“Also, any student who wishes to be successful in his or her academic career must avoid sleeping on end for several hours in order to avert failure.
“Oversleeping makes a student to be forgetful, lazy and dull to read and assimilate while in the lecture room and library, ” he said.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the university had admitted a total of 7,000 fresh students for the 2018/ 2019 session. (NAN)
