Background of people is defined as someone's life experience, education, and training. It is the sum total of a person's social and cultural environment—the person’s place of birth, where the person lived and currently living and where the person was brought up. Often times, one thing or the other can trigger our curiosity to know more about a person. We are humans, so it is inevitable for us to lose the contact of information of a dear one, be it friends, colleagues, college lecturers. When this happens we do all we can to get their information details back. We end up trying our best to dig out information that will tell us more about the person whereabouts. The importance of running a background check on neighbors and professors can’t be overemphasized as it will help us relate well with them.  

Digging out the background information of fellow students, neighbors, and professors is done in almost all educational sectors—university, polytechnic, and colleges. This curiosity is mostly seen among college students especially when there are new students or college professors usually at the begging of a new academic term. The love to know about a new or old college mate or teacher is something students cannot stop doing. They end up asking questions to find more about the background of the person to know if relating with them is a good idea or not. The verbal results of their finding are always limited and mostly based on assumptions. No matter hard we try to get this information by asking questions, we will not get the correct details through this method.
