Every Nigerian Student hope to leave the four walls of the university someday to face the real challenges of life.
The following ten things are things every Nigerian Student must do before graduation.

Make some mistakes
Contrary to some beliefs that one shouldn’t make any sort of mistake while in the university, mistakes are necessary tools to help one move forward.
