Students come for Babcock over ‘no cooking in hostel’ rule



Students come for Babcock over 'no cooking in hostel' rule

One of the private universities in Nigeria, Babcock University, an establishment of the Seventh Day Adventist Church made few reformations to the institution’s handbook as a new academic session is about to kick start.

The new rules enacted have set off students of the higher institution, who are not finding it funny, and have taken the school to the cleaners on social media.
The new amendment reads:

Due to some visible hazards (near fire outbreaks in the rooms) observed by the University administration, the university has decided that henceforth:

Cooking is disallowed in the halls of residence as stated in the Student handbook. Indomie (raw and cooked) will no longer be allowed in the halls of residence. Food from home must be brought only in plastic containers. ONLY table top sized refrigerators will be allowed in the halls of residence.

Students on getting the news reacted negatively and voiced out their grudges and opinions all over social media.

Comments from students ranged from “they must be joking” to “thank God I’m done with Babcock… these rules no follow”.

On the issue of face caps during the summer semester, the ‘KDS’ has already started enforcing the rule on campus.

Speculations are that the rationale behind the rule is hinged on the fact that students hide unapproved hairstyles under the caps.
