    Abstract:
    In the face of bizarre challenges, many Nigerian higher education students are surviving out of sure doggedness and determination to succeed. Out of improvisation, deprivation and sheer hard work, many students have attained graduation with outstanding qualities. This study employs autoethnography to report the author’s personal narrative of graduating in mathematics education in a public university in Nigeria. Reflective writings from three graduating students of mathematics education added voices to the autoethnography. Emerging themes deduced from the reports indicate a general mixed expectation for higher education, Students’ tenacity in the face of a tense school climate, and a productive social interaction as constituting broad experience of graduating students of mathematics education in Nigeria.
