Unilag vs OAU-Ife vs UI?

Which of those three schools do you respect most? Students and graduates of the three schools are not meant to participate because they will obviously be biased. Comments from people from other schools are most welcomed. Or should we put as: Which of these three schools would you have chosen to go if they were the only 3 Universities in Nigeria? As for me I go like this:

1) OAU Ife

2) UNILag

3) UI

All the three listed universities are included in the top lists and ranks of the best Nigerian schools. In some of them Unilag takes the top position. None of them is included in the list of banned universities of Nigeria. Unilag is considered to have the best engineering school in the country, so it rightfully tops the list.

However, the other two provide worthy alternative to this school and have great feedback both from the students and those employing them after they graduate.

@tpia, OAU has many variants aside 'oba awon university'. Others include 'oluwa awon university', 'olorun awon university', 'oga awon university', the 'only available university' etc.

Its oba awon university, not olorun awon university.

Obviously whoever typed the latter must be a product of a foreign university.

Anyway, i need to see what activities are planned for the aniversary, just for curiousity's sake.

In a village of blind men, a one-eyed man usually becomes king. If OAU (as widely stated on this thread) is Nigeria's best or most respected university, it's simply in confirmation of the aforestated aphorism. Nigerian education is somewhat insignificant in and even outside its shores. Nevertheless, Olorun Awon University (OAU) still make sense. U.I isnt bad as well.

Hmmm, everybody is now claiming that their school is the best. What a pity! Why not call a spade a spade. Moreover, you can't lose what you don't have. From ratings of 4icu, OAU is the best university in Nigeria. You can't resist it. We are the best

@recoome,

Thats not the OAU i graduated from, I can vouch for the OAU I finished from that its without doubt the best University in Nigeria.

You can go to UNILAG if the stress in Ife is too much at least you can party all you want, even if you dont do well, you are allowed to transfer to another department unlike in OAU where you face Road 1

I'm a student in oau. I think i must come in. I have been to the 3 schools and they are all good. Firstly, when it comes to having a conducive and beautiful environment u cant take that away from oau. In terms of study oau and ui are very okay but i must say this, what we are going through in oau is hell. In oau no course, i mean on course is easy. Even public admin or yoruba. It is in oau i see someone crying while reading, it is in oau u'll c someone scared of sleeping even after reading. If you're familiar wit oau and ui well you'll notice that gov corrected the mistakes they made in ui in oau in terms of structures and everything. I must tell u oau was carefully planned. However, ui is very ok but unilag ya pa! I'll strongly advice everyone to come on excursion to oau. U'll enjoy it

I am a student of oau, and i regret filling dis sch in my jamb form, d sch is a dead end where we have dumb students from ife and modakeke, who lack simple etiquette, are so loud and always ready to engage in battles, our best students and lecturers cant even construct a correct sentence and sometimes resort to teachin in yoruba, the staff are so archaic, lazy and old and are ready to allow u to stand in d sun throughout d day, our lecture theatres are mega ovens, we only pretend to be church goers but at night illicit sex is goin on all over the school even in fellowships, the boys hostels are something else,very dirty especially awo, d only thing in dis sch is d fallacious structures,the hopeless students union, and the the load of archival professors who have been rejected at UI and UNILAG, imagine after proclaimin standard, some students were admited wit scores below 200 in post jamb. I just know i will retake jamb and go to unilag. Oau is rubbish and nonsensical. Akokaites sorry for my previous posts anyways, ive now seen d worth of unilag.

it takes one to know one, are you a patron of your so called unilag brothel, lol. I don't think any school can really be said to out do the other when you talk of student prosis tution, they all like five fingers of a leprous hand, Ikan o gbe kan.

Topic: Great Ife would give Ibadan a run even with her loads of archival professors.

You guys should be ashamed of yourselves because so far these over-rated schools have been churning out bunch of corrupt "leaders" and "administrators" and have failed in all endeavors. I think now is the time for the new generation university to stake their claims in addressing the social ills in the society today with up to date academic curriculum, I am quite sure most of them are modeling their academic curriculum in line with the likes of Harvard and Preston. while the likes of UI, OAU and the rest will continue to live on obsolete glory ,

Hmmm, this has been an interesting and amusing read; it's excellent to see that you are all trying to rank these universities but I must say that I find it difficult to understand how you can rank three universities based on your experience of one or say two. To truly rank these universities you need to review these schools based on selected unbiased criteria, I fail to see any.

So to help with the ranking, I’ll use my selected criterion “intelligence”. Based on this the ranking order would be in the reverse order of any final results you get on this thread.

Reasoning: If you truly understand the dynamics of true ranking then you won’t be wasting time ranking on this thread implying higher intelligence thus a lower ranking score and …….

ok guys,to tell you the fact,i had a diploma in theater arts at ui{05-07} and am currently in 200L in oau studying sociology & anthropology, so am really in the best position to give a lasting judgment to the discussion on board, lol, ok,U.I is ok but OAU trains you to be on your own,OAU trains you to be a leader, honestly,you might not understand what am saying not until you have a taste of oau, Am proud to be an OAUITE, But the fact still remains that none of nigerian universities are listed in the best world universities and this gives me a great concern,so wats our joy all about?, think about it

Oau,its vry ridiculous.cos ones parent never sent his child to sch to start looking at buldings and architecture.if not,many students would be @ convenant.i prefer becos UI ACADEMIC RICH HISTORY SPEAKS FOR ITSELF.THE ALUMNI OF UI IS ALSO THE BEST COS most lecturers who taught the lecturers at ife would say They had their education @ UI OR in the diaspora.the last zain africa challenge,UI CAME FIRST BEATING Unilag to second.a Ui first class holder is better than that of oau and at interviews,UI IS MORE RESPECTED.IF ITS BEAUTY We are looking for.u can take a look at university of capetown,convenant e.t.c. Don't denigrate me cos i am not any in of the schools.UI, Ahrrgh! Their academic strictness makes even their third class look brillant.a first class holder in unilag or oau should try a post-graduate there.if its easy @ UI .JUST INSULT ME ANYHOW U LIKE BUT I STILL KNOW THAT UI IS NO 1 AMONG THE THREE.GOODBYE
