Engaging with International Students


Culture and Etiquette

Touch is encouraged among same-gendered friendships and affection is given very casually.

Guests aren't expected to bring gifts, unlike Nigeria's neighboring countries, and lateness to planned events is expected.

Nigeria is multicultural, having an ethnically diverse population with an array of spoken languages. Greetings outside of your ethnic group are generally in English.

The country is split fairly evenly between practicing Christianity and Islam. While very few practice the traditional religions, it's common to include aspects of traditional religion into daily worship.
