Here Are Some Reviews From Students, Aspirants and Prospective Candidates Of Lagos State University.
A student of the university, Solomon Daniel
The university community usually witnessed an increase in students and there are always traffic jams whenever the post utme was conducted.
He further stated that, the scarce number of candidates taking the examination generates from the astronomical increase in the raise of tuition of lagos state university.
However, the campus marshals and security outfit, who usually had hard time controlling the crowd and traffic in previous years.
But now, (which was yesterday, monday 18th june 2012) candidates’ turn out is low, and you wouldn’t blame the candidates.
You will notice, that last year, up to 5,000 people were offered undergraduate admission but due to the high raise in tuition fee, not more than 1,000 students accepted the admission offer.
So, if the management board and lasu senates, don’t do anything about the tuition fee, lasu future will be just like we post above, because the fees are just beyond the reach of ordinary Nigerians.
Just think of this, how can you see an average students paying N348,000
[Three Hundred And Forty Eight Thousands Naira]
in a state-owned institution.
While, the lowest fee is paid by non-science based faculties, and the whooping sum is N190,000.

Baiyewu stated that’
I wrote the examination on Day Three of the exercise 2011 and students, aspirants turn out, which is a number of their population was so large compared to what i am seeing now.
This increase in lasu tuition fee has caused this huge decrease in population, because not everybody can afford to pay such an amount.
