FUTA as always been one of the most prollific university of technology in Nigeria. It is located in the city of Akure, the capital city of Ondo state. Akure is one of most hottest city in Nigeria. The cost of living around the school area is higher than the standard of living. The courses schedule/timetable is hectic as that of smackdown schedule.
However, with all these hardships, they still come out exploiting, winning and brilliantly doing good all over Nigeria and abroad. They survive and do well academically through the following ways:
1. Tutorials: tutorials is an active extra-curricular activity that helps students to gain more knowledge about any course he /she wishes to know. This activity, i.e, tutorials, are organized by different unions, be it student union government (SUG), christian and islamic fellowships, departmental societies/association, and the school itself e.g mathematical science tutorials which has 20% of the result score.
2. Night Classes/Reading: though i realise this processes occurs in almost all schools but the gods of night class dwells in FUTA. Futa students goes to night classes like it's a way of life, we even start night class right from the beginning of the semester.
3. Operation Feed Students: this is referred to as futa igbeyin. It provides a great opportunity for students and sellers to meet. Students takes advantages of massive discounts and bargains on all items sold. Food items are sold to student at 40% discounts, knowing fully well that as the semester is close to an end, and examination is fast approaching, students are financially and mentally at their end game. This OFS is organised and activated by the student union government of the federal university of technology, Akure.
Drop your comments in the comment box. And shout out to all the students on this platform, kudos to us. May the Lord God crown ur efforts. Amen
I totally disagreed with this though futa is a great school which can be recon with but I tell you come to adekunle Ajashin, the students are always prepared despite the weather condition and other environmental constrains. But both schools are great.
I can so much relate to this because I'm a futarian also in my 4th year..being in FUTA alone can give you hard core experience you can ever think of..from 100level(Mee drawing) to 200level(farming) to 300level(ENT) to 400level(IT) and 500level(project)..inshort,one won't understand how it is until you have passed through the university.
Futa is a very good institution because student are always prepared for test. There are good equipments which help the students to have good understanding. There is little time for student to rest because night classes occur almost all the time. Futa is among the best school which I will advice people who are not yet enroll to come and have great time in Futa.
It is always said that hardwork pays, FUTA is a school that has little or no time to waste, they are always working academically so students take their books serious and moreover they have good equipments that enhances learning and they also have qualified lecturers.
Please not only in Futo it is applicable in all higher institution i went to a polytechnic and to be frank with you it wasn't easy. Attending lectures very early just to have where to sit, going for extra moral to meet up, endless night class just to pass examination. So long you know your purpose of been there so it Is applicable to all higher institution...
Futa is a very good institution because student are always prepared for test. There are good equipments which help the students to have good understanding. There is little time for student to rest because night classes occur almost all the time.
It is not only futa that has the good platform for acquiring students academically well ,there so many school that has the a very high academic excellency in studies , but futa is one of the proud schools to admit into ,it has high quality of learning among students and other financial problems and low discounts in daily income.
Studying in Nigeria institution is a great deal, every institution has its own uniqueness, FUTA is a great school, but i don't thing they outshine others student in other schools. Though I like that operation feed the student initiative. If other school can copy that, that will be great. Kudos to Futa students union.
I personally agree to the fact that FUTA students are adaptable but that doesn't mean that students from other schools aren't adaptable and bright too. I believe so because the brightness or adaptability of a student doesn't solely depend on the school he/she attends but on his/her zeal and determination.
FUTA is a good institution and so are other institutions because students are readily prepared ahead of any tests or examination and it has a good and condusive environment for learning.
Futa is a very good institution ,I can relate with this because that was where I did my IT , this is also applicable to other higher institutions it just depends mainly on the kind of students they have ,who are ready to face their studies.
Yeah agreed FUTA is definitely a great school but so are other schools. If you come to other universities they will definitely have something to say about how there is awesome. The thing is that every school as their own uniqueness. I am from OAU and I can say my school is the best that doesn't mean other schools are not superb in their own way. So the fact that I'm not attending FUTA doesn't mean I'm not in the best school
Well since when I have come to know futa,they have been a school to reckon with,they are one of the best schools in Nigeria only behind schools like Obafemi Awolowo university,Unilag and University of Ibadan, their students have however taken advantage to their favour by outshining students from other schools as a result of diligence and hardwork paid into their academics despite limited facilities
FUTA have always been a great school with great mission. Though we have many institutions out there in NIGERIA. But you can't compare FUTA with any other institutions. Should we talk about their semester teaching,their well equipped laboratories,their well condusive environment and they have adequate security. Am not against the fact that there are institutions better than FUTA ,but FUTA is the best institution ever
I would want to believe that you just wrote this in the singular view that ur a futa and just want to praise your school because in all sincerity many other schools students also do very well and even more than the futans and again most especially the school attended is not the source or determinant of the rate of uprightness or excellence of a student rather it all lies in the hands of the student and the decision to work hard and outshine others.
