Freshmen Year: The time of your life
Are you heading to university? Finally having grown up and taking your first step towards planting the roots for the rest of your life! This is an important phase but more importantly it is an exciting time, a time where you can collect the best memories of your life! Especially if you are a foreign student, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to explore a new culture and mingle with people who are so different yet so familiar to you. There is no better time to enjoy your university life than your freshmen year when academic pressure is nominal and the opportunities are plentiful. Here are a few tips on how you can make your first year in university truly awesome!
1) Explore your interests!
University is like a clean slate, a place where no one knows you. None of the neighborhood drama, only strangers waiting to be your friends. The best way to make friends in University, especially those who have similar hobbies and aspirations as you, is through joining societies, clubs and sororities. That may seem like conventional advice but that is the very reason why a vast portion of freshmen students avoid these student bodies. They seem too ‘lame’ for ‘new college kids’. They are never lame, in fact, they are your one-way ticket to popularity. Not that popularity is important, but it does allow you in to many parties, meetings and all sorts of happenings around the campus.
Figure out your interests and pick the student bodies you love and you will naturally communicate with people who have a similar taste. It is highly advised that you seek education consultants in Karachi or anywhere else around Pakistan in order to know exactly how your freshmen year should be like.
Making friends is not a piece of cake for everyone, but it does help you in more than one way. Not only do friends make your social life a little brighter, but college friends are especially helpful. Interacting and befriending people with a similar professional field as you presents various opportunities to you in the future. Think of it as an investment for your professional career. By networking, i.e. talking to new people, students from your age of even your seniors, can be a massive aid to you. By the end of it, you will be in contact with professionals in all sorts of fields. There is no better time to network and establish a persona around yourself than freshmen year. If you’re a foreign student, networking and increasing your circle and social influence is a must! Even during the immigration consultancy services phase, educational consulting agencies stress on the significance of your freshmen year!
