Today Kenyans have taken to the internet to give words of wisdom (or dumbness) to university students. These are the ones I found useful:
- Register as a voter
The cliché phrase, “the youth are the future” actually stands. Start the voter registration process as early as you can and make sure you participate in the general elections next year. Be sure to participate in making a change in Kenya.

- Be Innovative
When the going gets tough, get tough on the going. If you aren’t able to acquire a job find a way to survive and cash in some money. A degree doesn’t always equal a job.
#MyAdviceToUniversityStudents don’t .sit there waiting for a big company to employ you. start something on your own

- Your life is yours
Another cliché saying, “You came into this world alone and alone you shall leave.” Do not think even for one second that your fellow campus divas or goons will be there till you are 60. Comradeship is within university, after that you are on your own bruh.
#MyAdviceToUniversityStudents there is no comrades power when you go out there, landlord will deal with you

- Don’t bore yourself in campus
Middle life crisis is among the worst things to suffer from. Take time in your youth to explore and have fun (wisely). Let loose a little because it shall soon be over.
#MyAdviceToUniversityStudents There is life after years,not all about booze and shisha and go home an empty soul.

- I think this tweet below sums it up
Always use the gold-mine between your two ears in thinking rather than, the flesh btwn your two legs.
