Lagos State University(LASU) have concluded their first semester on Thursday, the 24rd of May, 2012. LASU is expected again to resume for the second semester, 2011/2012 academic session, on Monday, the 28th of May, 2012.
The quick resumption according to the information gathered by our correspondent is in bid to meet up with the academic calendar.
However, some students expressed their mind to CAMPUSLIFE. Omolara Savage, a 200 level student of Mass Communication said: “It is not a bad idea if we resume few days after our examinations because at least it will make us catch up wit other schools”. On the other hand, she said; “It is also kind of a bad idea because people have been waiting for the holiday and now that there are suppose to rest, the news just comes up and there is nothing they can do about it”.
James, 300 level, Christian Religion Studies Education (CRS EDU), said; “It is okay, the school is resuming 28th but me i am not resuming on the 28th.though they have their reason, which is to meet up with the school calendar but i can not kill myself”
Aderinola Olatunde, 200 Law, said “it a painful action. They are been inconsiderate”. To Aderinola, she had just began her holidays. “I am just beginning my holiday. We all have to settle our brains for next semester. After all, the VC was once a student like us and there is usual saying that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”.
Mubarak Tijani, 400 level Law student, as well as the chairman, caretaker committee National Association of Ikorodu Division (NAID), LASU. He said; “basically, i see no harm in this, since lots of time have been wasted four like sometimes now so there is no big deal in it. There is no time to waste as far since the school calendar as been planned”.
Tolu Emden, 200 Mass Comm, said she is not a computer machine. “I want to rest, party and Socialize. I also need some money so i am planning to work., but with all this, Its Just Impossible ! I need a long break. My brain is not a computer, she emphasized.
