Participants at the Career Talk, held at UNIS recently. Inset: Dr. Adeniyi Afolabi delivering his lecture.
The Alumni Association, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), recently organised a Career Talk for the senior class students of the FUNAAB International School (FUNIS).
In a Lecture, at the programme, Dr. Adeniyi Afolabi of the University’s Chemistry Department, charged the students to cultivate the habit of reading, which he said is a choice rather than gift and that constant reading of educational materials was a pathway to the attainment of academic success.
He also called on the students to always avail themselves of information about the course they intend to study, in terms of what it entails, marketability and prospects.
Dr. Afolabi advised students to choose Senior Secondary Certificate of Education subjects that would enable them undergo diverse courses of study in higher institutions.
“One of the things I have noticed as Lecturer in state and federal universities is that most students are not aware of some good courses/disciplines, hence, the bandwagon effects in their choice of disciplines”, he added.
The President of the Association, Professor Lateef Sanni, who was represented by Mr. Bolaji Gbadamosi, said the Association will not leave any stone unturned in its quest to keep the flag flying, by impacting in the lives of young ones.
Welcoming guests to the Career Talk, the Principal of the School, Mrs. A. D. Olumide, expressed gratitude to the Alumni Association for the brilliant step it had taken, towards making the future bright for Nigerian youths.
