What I don’t Miss About JKUAT

I loved spending my undergraduate years in JKUAT. However, the first day of the semester was a headache. You had to contend with long queues, which quickly became uncontrollable crowds. You had to deposit school fees at the bank, then come with the deposit slip to the students’ finance office with it as proof of payment. From there you could then register for the new semester, book rooms, etc.

Fighting through the crowd to finally get to the cashier was not easy! Usually if you are a girl you gave a boy classmate to do the dirty work for you! And with heroic tactics, these guys were creative in finding ways to the front! This also happened just before exams, when you had to be cleared by the finance department before you can sit for your exams.

I’ll leave you with like three pics, see for yourself. I got the pics from FB, so if you’re the one who took them, thank you for allowing me to use them. You wouldn’t say no, would you?

Jack Bauer has nothing on this guy!

Here’s another one..

See what you can do with a little cooperation?

From another angle..

Oh those days!

  3. Very resourceful! — though I’m not sure I’d appreciate it if I were next in line after waiting a long time! As you say, it’s mostly men who enjoy such competition 😉

    frustrating esp if u were about to be served and the cashiers decided to go for lunch/ close for the day. They had an excuse for this ‘the network is down’
