So the ongoing final year brethren week popularly called FYB week came with a full package. The final year week is a time for jubilation as the graduating students are leaving the university. For most departments, it usually features a costume day and we saw some unique costumes that blew our minds.
This year, it would seem the FYBs carefully chose their costume as we saw; "The Marlians", "The dead bride" , "Parte after Parte" "Tenitheentertainer", " La Casa de Papel" and so much more. Most of which were gotten from movie series and some other from popular celebrity outfits. Some students were very creative in the selections of their costumes while of course, some outfits were below the expectations of the students.
The final year week which holds on the last week of lectures annually is for the purpose of creating a memorable experience for the graduating students.
According to an OAU student, "Some FYBs were not able to accurately get the cooperate look but most them worked really hard in gaining the attention of not only their mates but the other students of Obafemi Awolowo University at large. It was really nice".
The costume day is usually the highlight of the FYB week as all students look forward to it and are expectant of which costume rules the day.
The Jersey day is also a memorable event as that is when the graduating students dance around the halls of residence of the Obafemi Awolowo University as they are being drenched with water. This is a way of showing our joy and partaking of their jubilation. The sign out day: the final year students all wear a white top or shirt on either a trouser or skirt and their fellow graduating students sign out on their white tops even until there is no more space available for any writing. The purpose of this is to reminiscence on their past time in school after they must have left the school for their different paths in life.
