My name is Israel Segun OGUNDELE, one of the pioneer graduates of the internationally acclaimed and prestigious University (KWASU). I am also a pioneer M.Sc. graduate from the same institution and I am currently working on my Ph.D. at KWASU, Faculty of Education, Department of Business, and Entrepreneurship Education. My experience at KWASU over the years is nothing short of awesome. The university is known for its community development and voluntary services. This offered me the opportunity to engage in voluntary services in the Department in the year 2015 when I returned for a master’s program. The voluntary services include teaching, helping senior lecturers, and professors in the department in several areas including research. The university also provides an avenue for me to volunteer and work with the Alumni (KWASU Alumni Association) in various capacities, such as Chairman for Grants and Scholarship Committee, KWASU Alumni Association. All these spurred me to develop more interest in working and contributing positively towards the development of KWASU at large.
KWASU has really contributed a lot to the wealth of knowledge that has been garnered. Morally, mentally and academically, KWASU has consistently illuminated my paths. Kwara State University has granted me several opportunities and I consider it a great privilege to serve in these capacities. While on the M.Sc program, KWASU offered me the opportunity to serve as a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) and as well worked as a Graduate Research Assistant (GRA). This also gave me the opportunity to work directly with the Pioneer Vice-Chancellor Professor Abdulrasheed Na’Allah as the Coordinator for Abdulrasheed Na’Allah Internship Program.I must admit that I am a proud KWASUITE and I am glad for being retained as an academic member of staff, Department of Business and Entrepreneurship Education, Faculty of Education, KWASU. KWARA State University is an Institution with a lot of potentials and highly sought after talents.
