2022/2023 Orientation Program for Fresh Students


We understand how acceptance into a college and beginning a new life comes with the fear of the unknown. However, leaving home for our institution in Lagos is a lot more fun. It means you will be exploring a new place, making new friends and family, learning independence, and setting your own priorities. Yes, you are going to face enormous changes in a small amount of time–this can be both exciting and challenging. Years of experience have shown us that getting off to a great start at Eco-African College includes attending the New Student Orientation.

The Eco-African College Orientation program is designed to provide support to new students as they begin to lay the foundation for a new academic and social life at our college. It creates the opportunity to:

  • Learn ECO-AFRICAN COLLEGE values and get informed about college life.
  • Find your way around the campus and check into residences.
  • Foster and develop valuable friendships and connections that will boost academic success.
  • Familiarize yourself with support services.
  • Learn about student advising and enroll for semester courses.
  • Get settled and begin classes promptly.

The orientation program also provides the opportunity to experience the special nature of undergraduate student life in a typical Modern-style institution. Orientation at ECO-AFRICAN COLLEGE is managed by department and staff members but coordinated by student volunteers. These volunteers are available to make you feel at home, answer your questions, address your concerns, and share in your excitement.

Orientation days provide you with the required knowledge and skills to effectively manage your life as a college student and get you off to a good start. It’s your life, but we are here to help you live it better through hard work, fun, and life-changing opportunities. We are glad to welcome you to college life and we are certain that you will love the ECO-AFRICAN COLLEGE experience.

Following these six tips should make your transition process more manageable and productive:

01 Plan to arrive on campus early. 

Arriving at the College campus early for the Orientation is an all-important step every new student should take for a successful transition. Remember, many activities are planned for you, and these activities are to help you in your transition to Modern-style college life and study.

02 Remember that all of you are new students.

If you’re feeling shy, not sure how to approach people, or completely overwhelmed with the sheer number of students on campus, keep in mind that almost all new students are a little confused.

03 Ensure you do your logistics-based tasks. 

Getting your student ID card, registering in a club of your choice, checking in to your residence hall, creating a school account and username, and registering for classes are the building blocks for the rest of your college experience. Get them settled as soon as possible.  There is always help available.

04 Don’t miss your placement exams. 

This is an all-important examination and prerequisite for course registration.   See your Orientation Schedule. 

05 Attend as many activities as possible.

Consider this: would you rather learn how to use the library, navigate around campus, and get acquainted with ECO-AFRICAN COLLEGE’s Code of Conduct now, while relaxed and meeting new people, or later in the semester when you are stressed, tired, and backed up against a deadline for your classwork?  All of our orientation activities are planned to help your transition be smooth and stress-free, to help you succeed.

06 Ask for help when – not if – you need it.   

Everyone on campus – staff, students, and departments – knows that now is a time for learning new things and getting oriented. If you are not sure about something, don’t be shy. Make sure to just ask someone.

Don’t worry, in a few days of your arrival on campus, you will be so familiar with a campus life that the campus will feel like your second home.
