"The Association of Faculty of Arts Students (AFAS) is the students’ body of the Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan, with membership strength of over three thousand."


The Faculty began in 1948 with temporary and make-shift buildings on the old site in Eleyele, a skeleton staff, and a handful of students reading for the B.A. General Degree, under the scheme of Special Relationship with the University of London. The original departments were Classics, English (which, from 1954, included a sub-department of Phonetics), Geography, History, Mathematics and Religious Studies.

In 1950, Classics, Geography and Mathematics secured recognition for Honours Degree courses under the Special Relationship scheme. Two years later, the same privilege was extended to English and History.

AFAS Review 2016

"AFAS Review comes to you with refreshing splendour and taste of creative voices, known and yet unknown. This is a literary kaleidoscope of inspiring and imaginative essays with deep intellection, a harvest of digestible verses that spread in petals of sensation, hinged upon memories and engagement with both the past and the present of human experience. The editorial team has done well in giving the opportunity to new and emerging writers to share same space with both established and international authors, thus fulfilling the spirit of the borderless beauty of creative birds flung across spaces... This is one good achievement by AFAS that is worthy of imitation and improvement."

AFAS Review (2018 - 2020)

“The second issue of the AFAS Review harmonises varied creative voices harping on crucial and somewhat negligible topics. The collection thrives on the versatility of contents exploring different genres of the arts including poetry, prose, drama and visual arts. This literary album takes on the flair of good music meriting endless replays amid unflinching following etched into the rock of time.

It is a miracle that the students’ body of the Faculty of Arts, University of Ibadan could, on their own, curate such a novel project saturated with mellifluous flavours of “the arriving” and “the arrived”. Again, AFAS Review exhibits the relationship between sepals and petals, in an auspicious manner.
