2018 Batch C orientation Course has been scheduled to hold nationwide from Thursday 15, November to 5 December 2018, while swearing in ceremony for the prospective corp members will take place on Monday 19 November 2018 by 10
Information has it that there are about 2,250 Batch C prospective corps members posted to Kaduna. Congratulations to you guys. I served in Kaduna (2017 batch A). Kaduna is a good place, you will enjoy it.
But here are few thing you need to know:
1. Cold North
This is especially for those from southern parts of the country. You may have heard it before, but let me just reiterate it here: the Northern parts of the country are usually colder than the southern parts during Harmattan .
Also, the orientation camp is a typical camp, as expected. So, expect that the cold will be felt there pretty much.
What you need to do is get your sweater and whatever gadgets for shielding yourself from Harmattan cold.
2. Get your documents ready.
First days in camp, you will go through series of registrations and verification. But that is not all. There will be other occasions when you will do one registration or the other. SO make sure you go to the orientation camp with all the documents you are required to come along with.
Note that list of required documents may vary, but here are the documents I used in Kaduna NYSC Orientation Camp.
3. The orientation course
The orientation course itself involves series of activities. I’ve already shared my own experience in my previous article. Please do read it here: What is NYSC Orientation Camp Like?
Enjoy your service year!
