BRIEF HISTORY OF THE DEPARTMENT

The University began operation at the former campus of the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology, Ibadan, in October 1962 with five Faculties, namely, Agriculture, Arts, Economics and Social Science (Now Social Sciences), Law and Science. The Departments of Botany and Zoology that made up the Biological Sciences section of the Faculty of Science moved (along with the Faculty of Agriculture) to Ile-Ife in January 1968. These two Departments were later merged and expanded to make the Department of Biological Sciences with programmes in Botany, Biochemistry, Zoology and Microbiology.

from the president

To many that trusted me with this mantle; in the journey of life this I must let you know that whatever thing that will happen in years to come would be as a result of whatever thing(s) we do either correctly or wrongly today. This I surely know, generations to come would talk about whatsoever we do rightly today and as well talk about things we didn’t lay our hands upon or ignored due to our level of ignorance. The study of microbiology in OAU has brought different tribes of us together for a primary purpose of academic excellence out of which many of us will depict our main area in life, well, all for the COMMON GOAL of...

from the secretary general

Greatest Namsites! Articulate Namsites!! Let me start by giving all glory, honour and adoration to the great architect, the one who designed the whole universe. It is also very important to appreciate the support from the PRIMAS my colleagues (GANADORS) and the BRAINIACS, those who worked tirelessly to make this possible. It is indeed a great privilege for me to be given the opportunity to serve as the General Secretary of the Nigerian association of microbiology students (NAMS) OAU chapter...

To many that trusted me with this mantle; in the journey of life this I must let you know that whatever thing that will happen in years to come would be as a result of whatever thing(s) we do either correctly or wrongly today. This I surely know, generations to come would talk about whatsoever we do rightly today and as well talk about things we didn’t lay our hands upon or ignored due to our level of ignorance. The study of microbiology in OAU has brought different tribes of us together for a primary purpose of academic excellence out of which many of us will depict our main area in life, well, all for the COMMON GOAL of making impact in life and ensuring a betterment for our environment.
Few have I witnessed under the mantle of the 2015/2016 parliamentary year led by BABALOLA kabiru(Babs), also the mantle of the 2016/2017 parliament year led by ODUNOLA kolawolu(Don.k) #get better crew and also to my immediate boss mantle of the 2017/2018 parliamentary year led by DUDUYEMI paul(De-paulinho) #redefinition crew, the meaning of leadership in so many practical ways by these set of leaders. Journey with us while the COMMON GOAL CREW unleash that which they have in stock for NAMS as a whole.
Here in NAMS OAU CHAPTER, we are not just ordinary microbiology students, but microbiologists with common differences, with the aim of EXPLORING MICROBES FOR THE WELL-BEING OF HUMANITY. With us, the class of BRAINIACS, the class of GANADORS, the class of PRIMAS, and the class of our newly admitted students, the realm of microbiology is about to be better by far with a COMMON GOAL! Permit me to leave you with these three statements of mine

  1. 1. Paresis ut prosis ne ut imperes.
  2. 2. Non scholae sed vitae.
  3. 3. Service to humanity is the best work of life.

Greatest Namsites!
Articulate Namsites!!
Let me start by giving all glory, honour and adoration to the great architect, the one who designed the whole universe. It is also very important to appreciate the support from the PRIMAS my colleagues (GANADORS) and the BRAINIACS, those who worked tirelessly to make this possible. It is indeed a great privilege for me to be given the opportunity to serve as the General Secretary of the Nigerian association of microbiology students (NAMS) OAU chapter.. No one is perfect, but he/she can still turn impossibility to possibility regardless, but with team work towards a common goal. It is on this note that 2018/2019 executives(common goal crew)saddled with this responsibility to make many of these impossibilities possible for everyone of us to witness and enjoy the unique privileges under this present leadership of the association and make NAMS better by far. Assisted by the grace of God, We have achieved a lot in this short period in office and we'll still keep it rolling for more till our last day in office all by his grace. In the course if this administration, we plan to accomplish the following project:

  1. 1. Equipment of Internet connection
  2. 2. Initiating an E-secretariat
  3. 3. Equipping Namsites for life after school
  4. 4. Organizing writing workshop and seminars
  5. 5. Uploading PDFs to websites
  6. 6. The use of social media to promote our association.
At this juncture, it's pertinent to appreciate cooperation of all executives and committees that will work tirelessly for the administration. I implore every Namsites to be good ambassador of this great department and this great citadel of learning and culture. On a final note, I will use this opportunity to charge students and everyone reading this to put their best in everything they are doing most especially in the pursuit of academic knowledge and other endeavours because whatever is worth doing at all is worth doing well.Success awaits you!
Long live NAMSITES
Long live Faculty of science.
