How to knot a tie: the basics

Have you ever wondered why some men do not wear tie? It is not because they dsilike ties, but truthfully because they do not know how to knot a tie. Some ladies know how to knot ties more than the men folks. This video is a must watch for everyone, as it would give one the practical steps needed to knot a tie. We found a lot of videos on how to knot ties, but our choice for this video was determined by the greater number of views (29,268,210 views), likes (67, 648) and subscriptions (49,475) the video attracted over other related videos as at 31st October, 2016. Enjoy!

IYA UWA...Department of Theatre and Film Studies, UNN

Department of Theatre and Film Studies Presents "IYI UWA"

Welcoming the fresh students

We heartily welcome the first year students of the 2016/2017 academic session. We have found that most of these new students do not know their left from their right. This is because of lack of orientation. The orientation is coming soon and we hope our students visit the library often, especially after the orientation programme where our University Librarian would unleash our packages. We have a cosy browsing arena for all of you. You may wish to visit our library website: www.library.unn.edu.ng
