Campus cult groups depend on the invitation
of new members to flourish. »
These groups take advantage of naivety and
innocence of the new students on campus.
Just like every other group like Christian
students association and Muslim students
association try to get the attention of the
freshers same way the cult group look out for
new entrants to increase their followership.
A lot of students were coerced to join the cult
group under duress because they were too
naive to recognise cult group movement
around them.
For admission seekers, congratulations if you
just gained admission into a higher
instittution. This piece forms part of the
series of orientation programs you'll attend in
your first month on campus.
So, to avoid being lured into cultism, these
five tips will help you.
Avoid bad company:
Freshers are quick to make friends amongst
themselves. It is fine to make friends and
socialise but beware of bad company. Do not
be carried away by the sense of freedom that
usually sweeps the minds of new university
entrants and lose sight on your primary
assignment in the institution.
And when you suspect your campus friend is
moving with some strange faces, keeps late
night and become secretive, it is better you
keep away rather than getting curious to
know what your friend is up to.

Mind what you wear:
Your choice of colour might endear you to
cult members. You might be seen as a
potential member if you don't know what
colour is an identity of what group. Your love
for a particular colour may drag you in. So
watch it.
Avoid attending parties of people you don't
know :
As a new university entrant, attending parties
in your few days on campus might be too
early and might expose you to being studied
by cult groups before they eventually
approach you to join them.
If you don't know the celebrant, there is no
point attending such parties.
Give your studies more attention:
Your primary assignment in the university is
not to make many friends and become the
popular student everyone knows on campus.
Neither is it to spend your time engaging in
activities that do not have any direct effect
on your academics.
If you cut the look of a serious student who
will not play with his studies, no cult member
would be bold enough to distract you from
your studies to invite you to join them.
Channel your exuberance to good courses:
One of the qualities cult groups look out for
in freshers is their exuberance. Your display
of energy and excitement could endear you to
them. When you are exuding your good
qualities, make sure you are channelling them
to good courses that are inimical to secret
cult activities.
