CAMPUS LIFE: ATTRACTTIONS AND DISTRACTIONS Proverbs 4:13.

Daniel 12:4, Proverb 4:14-19 According to The New Penguin English Dictionary, Campus is the grounds and buildings of a University especially or the grounds of a school, college etc. The campus community is a faithful copy of a large society but in a more complex and dynamic way. It showcases the different latent talents, characters, tendency as well as belief of diverse human beings who come under its influence and tutelage. It is usually an enclosure which usually has all required basic life necessities. Its quest for relevance in the field of every human endeavor endears it to all. The students live on a residential Campus with academic and non academic staff. The level of social life on campus stands out. There is absolute freedom almost without limit on campus. This can easily overwhelm an unstable soul. I. CAMPUS LIFE: POSITIVE ATTRACTIONS
