   However just before you resume school as a fresher, there are some things we thought you should be informed of, so you can be better prepared.

federal university of technology akure fresher

The Federal University of Technology, Akure is one of the best University in Nigeria currently ranked 8th out of Top 100 Universities in Nigeria [2020]. Apart from being a Federal University, it is also one of the few notable Federal University of Technology in Nigeria.
   In order to make the best use of your stay in FUTA; FutaNewsandGist had compiled some resources to help you get better prepared.

5 Things You Should Know Before Resuming Into FUTA as a Fresher

1. RIGHT Information is Power

   You might have heard this sentence several times that - "Information is the key" | Of course, this is quite right and FUTA is not exceptional. Luckily; information is easier to access because of the level of ICT knowledge in FUTA which makes it easier to get informed through the official FUTA Website (
     However just as Information is the key, MISINFORMATION can also be disastrous. This is why as a FRESHER, you must be careful of the source of Information. Just as a popular quote once stated;
  "Do not Trust the Source of a News, Trust the Reliability of the News itself"

   Some recommended source of reliable information are FUTA Official Fanpage | FUTASU Twitter, |

2. You Should Try not to Miss the Orientation Programs.

    Orientation programs are programs designed to help you as a Fresher settle quickly in school. At the beginning of the session, the Federal University of Technology, Akure always organize orientation programs for FRESHERS so as to be informed of some certain important information about the school.

    You can find the date for FUTA Orientation program at the School Academic Calendar.

Intermission: MSSN FUTA Plans to Organize Orientation program for FRESHERS on Moral and Academic Excellence.

3. Never Under-Estimate the Power of Reading Materials

READING MATERIALS not only allow you to better understand the topic that you were taught in class but also gives you an edge on what you should know it. You'll find a lot of reading materials here on FutaNewsandGist and you can as well Download Past Questions to help you better prepare for exams.
   These soft copy materials have a lot of advantages such as offering a flexible means of gaining knowledge.

4. Open Your Mind To Opportunities

One of the most interesting thing about the Federal University of Technology, Akure is that it has a lot of opportunities for the minds that are willing and ready to learn. 
   Opportunities such as the Developer Student Clubs, Entrepreneurship programs, ICT Seminars, Scholarships and etc are something you should open your mind to so you can be able to build yourself intellectually as well as level your skills.

   You can view some of the Opportunities in FUTA here that we've published already on FutaNewsandGist.

5. Hope For the Best, Prepare for the Worse

   While there are a lot of beautiful things about FUTA; it is not easier as it sounds. Before you can level up your skills, you have to be ready to commit yourself. And before you can make it to the Deans List; you have to work very hard in your academics.
     This is why a certain #MondayMotivation Quote on the FutaNewsandGist website says; "You should Hope for the Best, but Prepare for the Worse"

Wishing you the very best!

FUTA Students opinion on FUTA WiFi

2. "Internet is very important in today's Age and this idea would allow students to have access to Internet anytime anyday. So they wouldn't have to worry about running out of data subscription" - "Deremi

Students' Opinion on Location and Coverage  

5. "I think it is a good idea just that only people on campus will have access to it anytime and anyday." - Nuel Simons

6. "I wouldn't mind paying for it but there's an exception. For someone who stays a farther distance from school, they might not be able to enjoy it. I think they should extend the coverage and also improve speed" - Zainab

Students' Opinion on the Cost

7. "To me, i think the school can and should try to peg it at #1000. It's a great idea nevetheless" - Alli

8. "I thought the access to WiFi is part of the ICT fee in the schedule of fees. Am not in support of the management adding extra fee to school fees" - Ogunkeye Segun

From the FutaNewsandGist Editor Desk

    Having Access to FUTA WiFi unlimited for a whole session at the cost of #2000 is not such a bad idea. However; we at FutaNewsandGist think if such idea is to be implemented; a lot of work needs to be done as regards the SPEED as well as COVERAGE.

     Although most students think the cost is a bit high; our stand on that fee remains neutral but it will be appreciated if the cost is reduced to a minimal.

FUTA Students' Opinions Regarding Access to FUTA WiFi for #2000 per Session Poll

In a recent tweet by the FUTA Student Union; a poll was asked to seek Students opinion on what they think about having access to FUTA WiFi for a Session at an additional cost of #2000.

Importance of Internet for Students and in Modern Life

The Internet is an extremely important thing in which it's importance in not only in education but also other fields such as business, healthcare, government and etc. 
    For Students; there is a great need for Internet in order to make research in order to improvise in their fields. Also; Internet helps to discover opportunities for students - the list is endless.

Major Obstacles To Using Internet Today in Nigeria

Despite the importance of Internet as earlier mentioned; there are still some obstacles to Internet usage in Nigeria. Some of these issues includes slow connection and heavy data rates. Although in the part of data rates; Nigerian telecoms are improvising on reducing data rates.
     However the issue of slow connection is still something that needs to be tackled with.

FUTA Planning to Introduce FUTA WiFi for all Students - Your Opinion

I could recall at a particular when i was discussing with someone who says it would have been best if all FUTA Students had access to Free WiFi even if it were to be included among school fees. This would save a lot of students having to worry about running out of internet subscription. 

 What do you think about an addition of #2000 for access to WiFi for a whole session? leave your opinion below:
