IF YOU ARE IN THE UNIVERSITY...BY MARTIN BECK NWORAH




If you're in the university now,you have the best golden opportunity to be great. Come to think of it,we have virtually all the freedom we need to aspire and work hard to succeed. There are many programmes on campus that is aimed at equipping us for the future. The school is there for our academic formation. The church and social clubs are there for our character formation. And most importantly,we have the night clubs,
hotels and other hang outs for our fun. Now I know some will frown at the above fact.
The real problem we're facing here in the university is that people are told to believe that some things are not important,while in their very face,they see almost everyone doing it. I believe the key is caution and not restraint. If you're matured enough to be on campus,you should also be matured enough to pick your friends and choose the life that works for you.

I'm an introvert and an extrovert at the same time. I enjoy having fun but that won't stop me from paying attention to my studies and doing things that matter for my future. The university is an opportunity to explore your talents and meet people. Allowing yourself to be chained down by dogmas and any affiliation you have may be very dangerous for your future. Pray all you want,study all you want,party all you want,go crazy,get drunk,have real "fun". At the end of the day,you will be happy for the opportunities you utilised than the unnecessary caution and fear  you tried exercising over a situation that may not be real.
I believe in success. I also believe in God. More to these is my belief that I will live a life that I will be proud of when I leave this campus. if my life is not pleasing to anyone,its practically their own problem and not mine. I have less time to spend here and I must make it count for my posterity. So I will work hard to get a good grade,and also have good fun. At the end of the day,let "HIM" judge. Till we get to the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
