How do you enjoy University life?

I have just completed my degree, and it has left me thinking about all of the things that I loved about University life. One of the things that I liked the most was being able to see all of my friends whenever I wanted to, because we were always on the same classes so we got to see each other every day. Another thing that I liked was being able to have my independence away from home, so that I was able to do whatever I wanted at whatever time. What was your favourite thing about life as a student? Would you want to go back to them if you could?

Things in my life have changed way too much for me to ever be able to go back to my college life, but if it wasn't for the changes that I have been through in my life, I wouldn't question it for a moment. I loved the fact that we didn't have every class every day and that we were really able to pick which classes that we wanted to take and also who our professors would be. I liked living on campus because I had a lot of fun and made really good friends and I also liked the fact that I had independence for the first time in my life.

I enjoyed not having to go to class every day as well. Whereas in school, the only way that you would be able to do anything is if it was holiday time, you could get a lot more done outside of class time, and this is something that I enjoyed a lot. I lived on our campus when I was in my first year as well, and I loved being able to stay in bed for such a long time before I had to leave to go to class. I lived away in the other years though and the journey in was more than two hours long, so I certainly made up for being so lazy in my first year.

I am still a sophomore student now,on one hand I also hope that I can graduate and have my independence too,on the other hand I worried about my job amd afraid that I can't find a content job.So I am very confused now.

Getting a job at the end of your course is something that might not be as easy as it may have been at some points in the past. However, I don't think that you should be worrying about this at the moment because there is nothing that you can really do about it. The best thing that you could do would be to try and get the best grades possible in your course, as this would mean that you would have a better chance of being able to get a job when you finally finish your course. The only thing that you can really do is to try your best and hope that things go well along the way.

Thanks for sharing this discussion. Like u i too completed my degree this year and it was a great 4 years of experience that i would carry with me all through my life. i have had my share of ups and downs that has taught me many lessons in the process. We started off as newbies and ended up as being a senior and this was nothing less like a journey of a child to being a veteran. I have many fond memories that i will cherish forever. What say?

I think that the lessons that we all learn as a student are the things that make our lives better in the long term future. One of the things that I learned was how to interact with people professionally rather than just as a friend. This meant that I was really able to look forward to the future knowing that I would be able to do this. It is not just the education that you have to worry about, but how you are going to cope with getting to know all of the new people who are around you as well. It is a good lesson to learn, and one that is incredibly important in life.

I enjoy most of my College days, i never regret going to College despite the difficulties that i was experiencing be it financial, peers, subjects, etc. I love the fact that College life gives you the freedom to choose which path are you pursuing, It is the stage in life that will make or break you, because I believed that College is undeniably the battleground for you leap in the real world. My advice on how to enjoy your life in the University? Well, it's simple! Don't get pressure and don't be serious in all of it! Enjoy it while you are young, Explore things that you never had experienced back in your high school life, Because at the end of the day, These experiences helps you mold who you are and what you wan't in life.
