Competitions ranging from sporting activities to intellectual activities are organized at local, national and international levels. At the school level, intra and inter school debates are organized, inter college matches are also organized but as an institution envisioned to be world class, the students are not groomed to be local champions alone in and around the school environs but to be champions at both national and internal levels. Hence, students participate in essay competitions and debate competitions outside the four walls of the varsity.
Keeping fit is a necessity for man, hence in SAU, both members of staff and students are encouraged to participate in various sporting activities like football, basketball, volleyball. To this end, different football matches have been organized for the female and male football teams.
To spice things up, football matches are organized between local football team and the school team for both male and female clubs.
Nigeria as a country is culturally rich and SAU as an institution located in Nigeria is filled with people from different cultural background. To avoid losing these cultures in our corporate world, cultural events are organized where traditional meals are prepared ranging from Oha soup & starch, Afang soup, pounded yam and eforiro, white soup and so many more. Students also dress in their colourful native attires and cultural songs become the order of the day to which cultural dance steps are performed.
In SAU, we do not groom students to be anti-social because it is our desire that our students are active social beings as much as they are academically sound. Hence, series of social activities are lined up for every semester such as student week, departmental association’s week like AMCOSS (Association of Mass Communication Students), NESA (Nigerian Economic Student Association), Chemical society of Nigeria to mention a few.
