“Hey, which college are you from?” Now, isn’t this one of the questions asked when you meet someone?

Well, as it is pretty obvious, your college is very important. For some people, it even becomes a matter of prestige! But college days are perhaps the most vital days in a student’s life; a phase that helps in shaping a student’s personality and career. College is definitely a big step for any person. It’s surprising how we get accustomed to it. Waiting becomes a habit.. in lines, at the library, at the canteen… But something you don’t really hate. Making new friends is no longer a difficulty, as long as mutual respect exists. Two of the most important things that occur to one’s mind when we talk about college life are ragging and bunking, classes obviously being last!

Though ragging is now thankfully a punishable offence, a little bit of interaction with seniors, or ‘breaking the ice‘ is not harmful. In fact, it turns out to be very helpful in the long run. Seniors first appear as devils with horns and pointed tails, but once you get along, they can be amongst the most friendly people around. Checking out people around us, making new friends is just the beginning. Then starts the real fun! From attending classes to eating in the college canteen, there’s always something stupid yet memorable that happens, which you realise years after college days are over. Priya Kothari, a first year student of Microbiology from St. Francis College for Women, says, “These are the days we can get our childish nature back, and when we recollect these days in our old age, they are amongst the most cherishable moments.”

There are so many things happening, even in just a day, that you get the thought of making a scrap book of memories!

Masroor Nishath, a final year student at Sultan Ul-Uloom College of Pharmacy, says, “SUCP is quite popular for its peaceful surroundings. Especially, during the mornings, students of the college say that the soothing view of the abundant trees and the chilly breeze makes them feel enthusiastic and this is the driving force behind them going to college everyday. As the saying goes, ‘All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy’, one has to also consider the fact that, though studies lay a foundation to one’s future, having fun also is very essential in a student’s life. And when the college you belong to is SUCP, the first thing that comes into mind is the amazing canteen located just a few steps away from the entrance of the college. The canteens are not only the perfect hide-out for the students but also a place where one can find delicious food items like the famous ‘veg-manchuria’, ‘chicken 65′, ‘chicken burger’ and so on. The ‘college lawn’ has been an all time favourite place for students to chill out after the regular lectures. Bunking has always been on my schedule ever since I was a junior and when you are in a group, the place doesn’t matter at all, we anyway have fun. Bunking the college doesn’t only mean having fun with friends, one can also spend time with seniors. All the latest gossips, trends and everything else that makes a student’s life interesting play an important role in boosting up one’s confidence level and eventually helps in developing a positive attitude towards college life.”

Once you join college, you’ll be as busy as you’ve ever been. But on the other hand, you get equally spare time. There’s always a lot to be done; from practicals to lab records, from journals to projects, and from taking notes to sitting in the library and studying from those big fat textbooks! Everything seems like a huge load on your back but you get adjusted within a semester.

Ubaid Ahmed Khan, a student at the University of Nottingham, Malaysia, says, “Life in college is way tougher than high school to be honest. I believe one’s actual character is seen in this life-testing phase. It will just show how determined you can stand on your objectives and how easily you can deviate away from it. You have to manage your budget, take care and guide yourself (both physically and mentally), motivate yourself and lastly excel academically. I’m not trying to scare my juniors but only advicing them to be prepared for a tough life where every decision is your own and the outcome will show your success or failure in this stage of life.”

Even social life undergoes changes once you get into college. Friends, hanging out, partying, group studying, there’s something different about it. No matter which college you go to, there’s always a heap of activities to do. The oppurtinities at college are tremendous; no matter how big or small, but there’s something or the other good about each of them. Be it a fest, or a sports week, there’s enjoyment at some point of time in the academic year, whether you are a medical, engineering, or even a graduation student.

College fests are always fun. This is where one’s leadership and management skills are tested. Apart from that, fests also mean innovation, interaction, and a lot of socialising! These fests also provide platforms for students who want to get their talent recognised..be it singing, dancing, acting, painting; just about anything! There are sports weeks too. Football, basketball, cricket, throwball, volleyball, badminton, tennis, chess, carroms, table tennis..there’s a long list of outdoor and indoor games played by both boys and girls. All the excitement, cheering is worth all the effort put in. To participate, you don’t even have to be a pro at it, because having fun matters more than winning.

Syed Jaffer Ali, a third year student of Sultan Ul-Uloom College of Pharmacy, says “Sports week at SUCP is the best time of the year when the actual essence of college life is established. It is a source of interaction between the seniors and juniors away from the exalted definition of ragging in present day colleges. An equal platform for both the valedictorians and the average students is established to perform and excel. The concept of ‘fun’ too gets a better meaning and appreciation. I feel every college should have a similar annual event.”

Mohammed Adeemul Khader, a third year Computer Science Engineering student from Muffakham Jah College of Engineering and Technology, says, “College life teaches a person about friendship, about respect, and least but not least, about being yourself. A person realizes his power of responsibility in a society, his innumerable talents which help him grow and strive for the best in life.”

Mubassir Shah, an Electrical Engineering student from UCSI University, Malaysia, says, “College is like a fountain of knowledge, and the students are there to drink! The first two years of college are vocabulary lessons. The next two years are spent learning who to ask and where to look it up.”

Truly, college days are memorable for everyone. Once this phases passes by, you’ll miss the freedom you had and the oppurtunities that came to you. Those friends, being with them all day long, having fun, getting into trouble, facing challenges, overcoming hurdles, celebrating, and moreover that feeling of satisfaction at the end of it is truly amazing. Leaving college isn’t the end of the episode, the experience gained goes a long way in paving way for a successful life. Remember, after one chapter in your book of life, the best is yet to come!
