Located in a suburb that used to be on the outskirts of Accra, the University of Ghana has grown into a vibrant community and hence studying here will not be a mistake at all. Life is made basically easy as a freshman at UG. In fact, you will feel on cloud nine as everybody is almost scrambling over to help a freshman. The university management make it a priority to give every freshman a hall residence. The halls of residence are mostly located right in the middle of campus and cannot be too far from the department where the student will be studying. Getting to the crust of going to the university which is basically academics, it is basically treated as the golden goose of UG. Mess with your academics and nobody will want to be your friend not even your shadow. The departments are well structured with state of the art teaching and learning equipment. Libraries are adequate and study rooms as well. Though, they do not seem enough when exams is around the corner. The lecturers are well versed in their areas of expertise and are able to break down the most complex courses for their students. They are committed to ensuring that the students only produce the best of grades. The downside about studying at UG is basically the unfriendly nature of the staff at the Registrar’s office. Throughout my four year stay at the university, I had three experiences at the Registrar’s office and they were all not pleasant. The staff are not willing to help students without whom they would not have a job in the first place. They seem to have prejudiced minds about students thinking them to be cunning and up to no good. In conclusion, the University of Ghana is not a bad place to study. In fact, it is one of the best universities to enroll in Ghana. The quality of training given here prepares the student well for any job outside of school.
