Been an undergraduate and going to the university is fun especially as a young Nigerian, but to say the least, reality can be quite daring and wicked to those who are not fortunate enough to have well to do and financially independent and buoyant parents, guardians and sponsors.

MAKING MONEY ONLINE AND OFFLINE IN NIGERIA AS AN UNDERGRADUATE IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE

My financial woes also had a major role to play in my not up to par grades or how else do you expect a man who has not eaten good food for long to read well and concentrate on reading his books?

In case you don’t know, you expend more energy and fat by putting your brain to work either in reading or thinking than when you engage in even physical activities.

Let us leave the issue of food aside, it is pertinent to note that buying textbooks, registrations, paying fees and general survival are also hinged on having substantial amount of money, so little wonder why our youths today engage in wrong vices like armed robbery, cultism, prostitution, kidnapping because there is no one to show them the way.

This post is a compilation of all I did and things my other not so lucky friends engaged in to make real legal money both offline and online during our university days in our great country Nigeria.

  • ENGAGING IN STUDENTS’ POLITICS

This is another way students are making money in the university.

The bad part is that it is not for everyone, you have to be bold, possessing leadership qualities, eccentric, lovable, social and daring to survive here.

Also with the high incidence of cultism in Nigerian universities and subsequent intimidation, I would advise anyone to be careful before venturing in university politics, also, you will definitely have a steep slide in your academics, are you ready for the sacrifice?.

If you can be successful in university politics at the departmental, faculty or students’ union body, you might as well kiss your financial woes good bye for the time being.

But be careful, wealth gotten from this avenue is not mostly legal and it does not last and also, your general studentship and integrity will be at stake, Venture wisely!
