The University began operation at the former campus of the Nigerian College of Arts, Science and Technology, Ibadan, in October 1962 with five Faculties, namely, Agriculture, Arts, Economics and Social Science (Now Social Sciences), Law and Science. The Departments of Botany and Zoology that made up the Biological Sciences section of the Faculty of Science moved (along with the Faculty of Agriculture) to Ile-Ife in January 1968. These two Departments were later merged and expanded to make the Department of Biological Sciences with programmes in Botany, Biochemistry, Zoology and Microbiology.

Over the years, different administrations have come and gone, batons of leadership have been passed from one generation to another — up to this generation. We have not so many difference with past administration, but we have one significant difference, “to make NAMS OAU better by far”.

Getting better is not just an art, but an act which must be carried out by everyone. Here in NAMS OAU, we are not just another set of Microbiology students, but Microbiologists with better differences who are exploring microbes for the well-being of humanity.
With us, the realm of Microbiology is about to GET BETTER!


Greatest Namsites!!! Articulate Namsites!!!

It is with great pleasure and humility that I write this speech and I want to open with a very common quote “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step”.

Not very long ago we took that step to building a greater NAMS by electing our leaders into office and we expect them to deliver on the promises made during their campaigns and one of which was the creation of a NAMS website which would serve multiple purpose of unifying NAMSITES, disseminating information, entertaining, help NAMSITES advertise their products and many other things. Therefore let us this platform to achieve the purpose of its creation as stated above.

Also, an administration that does not listen to its members might as well be called a dictator ship that is why we have added a feedback section to get your views, comments and suggestions that would better the affairs of NAMS.

To all students finding one or two things difficult and feel like they cannot make it remember that tough times don’t last but tough people, just put in effort, time and be consistent. Shout out to my friends in part 1, the journey might seem far but its really not that far, focus is the key to reaching your goals. Shout out also my friends in part 2 and part 3. To my classmates the “destacados“, I want to say the journey has been awesome alongside you guys, I look forward to our continued progress.

Let us not also forget that we cannot achieve our plans without your support and very importantly your DUES.Thank you for your time. You can also send your suggestions to my personal e-mail account by clicking here.
Long live NAMS!

General Secretary,
