Both past and present students of the University of Benin, have taken to Twitter to relieve experiences from the school, that may live with them for a long time, if not forever.
Ekosodin is a village which shares it’s borders with UNIBEN, and hosts many students, who don’t wish to stay in the school hostels or didn’t get hostel bed space.
Depending on where in Ekosodin you live, Uniben back gate is almost a stone thrown away, making it an easy choice for students opting to live off campus.
The some of the experiences shared are so hilarious, that you’d almost skip the message.
See how some Alumni and students relieved their Ekosodin experience
#Ekosodin taught me everything I know… T taught me to be humble, respectful, never underrate anyone, be observant, be cautious, keep your friends close but your enemies closer… Living in #Ekosodin was frightening and fun… The fun that comes with living on the edge

There was a period our pumping machine got spoilt, so we had to get water from another hostel, a neighbour was carrying 25ltrs on both hands filled with water, another neighbor jokingly calls him STRONG MAN, he got 3 slaps cause a strong man was passing and heard it. #ekosodin
