The three B's that make campus life
13 February 2015, 10:40
Nairobi - When one completes their secondary school education, their dream is always to join a University.
With tales of how sweet campus life is, everyone is always eager to get that opportunity though many are always left out.
The lucky few who secure admission to institutions of higher learning of course savour every minute of their stay - a place where there is freedom to do whatever you want without fear of parents' hawk eyes spying on them.
It is then that lady who had never won tights gets chance to try new outfits and innocent young men who was always shied away from hugging ladies get to learn that hugging is normal greeting. It is there where young men and women get to know how cool it is cool to use drugs and alcohol.
The first dream of a lady joining campus is often to leave with Honours and become the Bensouda, Carolyne Mutoko, Chris Kirubi or even Steve Jobs of tomorrow. But the dream is only valid until they get to know the other two pillars of campus life save for the few who stick to their christian beliefs.
Books, boobs and booze - the three B's of campus life - come into play.
Recently, a University in Zimbabwe banned kissing in the campus. This shows just how serious the situation is. The trend in most campuses is 'Let's stay together until semester do us a part.'
The last B, booze, is becoming a real problem that should worry Nacada. The rate of alcohol consumption in campus is on the rise and business people are maximizing on this. Around any University lies several drinking dens. One would wonder why students keep pushing for HELB increment yet almost all of it is splashed on drinks. The money hardly lasts a month for most students.
