NCC’s “small-knit community” is what Enioluwa Aminu remembers clearly of her time at the school. Her NCC journey started with the school’s summer programme. “I was welcomed with open arms by the dorm staff and I immediately started forming relationships,” recalls Aminu. “The physical look of NCC was also very welcoming. I arrived during summer so it was such a fun time as there were so many outdoor activities like bonfires, sitting by the lake, and game nights.”
While Eni initially struggled with her English and using citations in her work, her teachers were more than willing to help her overcome her challenges. “I went directly to my teacher at the time for assistance. She helped me without making me feel like I was a burden,” she shares.
NCC’s English classes — among other classes like Biology and Chemistry — soon became Aminu’s favourite part of her life at NCC. “I enjoyed every bit of it: the analysis of the play Macbeth, the final project, and that the class was very small,” enthuses Aminu.
Aside from academics, Aminu’s extra-curricular activities kept her busy in all the right ways. She took on leadership roles in organisations such as the arts council, student council, and campus fellowship. “I discovered very early on that I derive satisfaction by improving the total happiness of my community around me, so the best way to do this was joining clubs that impact community life,” shares Aminu.
