Olu University Experience My name is Olu Fadipe, and I want to share my university experience. I started Solent University in September 2015 and I graduated in July 2019 with a 2:1. I would argue your time at university is when you grow the most as a person, I often look back at how I was when I first started and the person I have now become.

I have mild cerebral palsy and during my time at university I lost a large proportion of my sight. Alongside my studies I continued being a freelance writer and public speaker.

And this drove me to prove to society, and by extension, to myself, that I could achieve what able-bodied people could. I viewed university as my platform to achieving this.
