Academic freedom literally means that students should explore all possible avenues in learning and research opportunities found within an academic institution. At this juncture, I will like to admonish you from engaging in any social vices on this campus. Remain committed to your studies (lectures/practicals) endeavour to always be regular and punctual at all academic activities. Staff and students of the Department are required to cordially interact at all times. For, together we can achieve our common objectives of academic excellence and professional advancement. As a young and growing Department of Forestry and Wildlife Management in Nigeria, our hopes are very high and our dreams are boundless, as we work towards attaining greater heights andin making sustainable contributions to our dear nation. This undergraduateStudent Information Handbookprovides useful informationwhich can guide forestry students to excel during their academic pursuitin this University. This Handbook may not have provided answers to non- academic questions that may bother every student.
