Insight: Things You Can Do To Make Money On Campus


As a student, you tend to face so
many challenges, ranging from
tution fee, hostel fee and other fee.
Let me not even speak about those
ones now, because you tend you pay
for those ones once in a year But Do
you Know that the money you use in
Feeding and buying Materials Is
even more greater then the amount
you spend for school fees and other
fees and obviously, they are the ones
that tend to consume more cash.
What are these other challenges?
-Departmental dues
-Hostel Dues
-Faculty dues…. Etc
1. Photography: The Photography
business has grown from its state in
the days to a renowned profession
which people are making a fortune
out of. Starting this business in small
scale means youre not just making
money at the moment but securing a
strong financial future for yourself.
You know how students especially
the female folks love taking pictures,
this is the perfect time to make
maximum use of this opportunity.
you don’t need much to start, just
save a little money for a good
camera, with a bit of creativity and
you’re good to go.
Please note that doing photography
professionally requires just more
than the previous requirements
mentioned but this should be enough
to get you started. you can also take
passport photographs during school
2. Sale of Fashion Items: Interesting
thing about this business is that
you’d succeed no matter your
gender. Both male and female wears
rocks on Nigerian campuses and who
else will succeed more if not their
fellow students.
I know of a guy who is living
comfortably and paying school fees
only by selling men under-wears,
yes, Just men under wears, most of
the times he travels out to the region
where these boxer shorts are at a
very low prize, buys them and bring
them to his school.
He sells these boxer shorts for
virtually everybody in his region
ranging from his lecturers down to
his fellow students. I don’t want to
go into details on how much these
things cost, but its best you do your
home work.
3. T-Shirt Customization: This business
requires your creativity as a student.
looking around you, you’ll notice
students love fancy and funky stuffs.
learning the art of this business
means you’ll have fellow students
begging you to collect their money
for a t-shirt write up.
You can learn this simple business
during your stay at home/holiday.
You can start in small scale by doing
the write ups on your own T-shirt,
friends will like it and ask you to
even do for them. Just start
something. Remember the “My Oga
at the Top Saga”? you see those
custom t-shirts? Need i say more? –

4. Online Registration: Yes, if you have
a laptop and a bit of computer
knowledge, i don’t know what stops
you from enjoying both the pleasure
and money derived from this Job.
you can register virtually everything
Course Registration, Post-UTME
Registration, JAMB Registration, Job
Application, etc. You can even make
extra cash from typing assignments
and projects for fellow students. Do i
also need to tell you the thousands of
Naira made during post UTME
registrations? All the tools you need
to make good money are all around
you, you Just need to identify one
and work your way through it.
5. Website Design/Hosting: I’ll be a bit
biased on this one because that’s
what i do currently and don’t know
if its suitable for students or not. But
i can authoritatively tell you students
are taping into the hidden money
from this lucrative business.
It may take a while to learn the
entire concept of how this things
work but its something you can
easily do while you are home for
holidays. Website Design may sound
a bit complex so you might want to
manage the little you get from setting
up blogs for fellow students.
6. Selling Of Data Bundle: Many people
make lot of money from selling Data
Bundle, it depends on how you
package yourself, you have the notice
board for free advert. (Don’t dull)
This write up may not make sense to
you because you don’t know a thing
about website design, its why i’ll
advice you to learn under anybody
who is established in it already.
Look around your campus, there are
students who do well comfortably
with this business, it wouldn’t hurt
much to meet them to put you
