My First Day at University
My University is an educational institution which is widely recognized all over the world. It originated from Philippines and collaborates with PSBA (Philippine School of Business Administration). It has 2 branches in Jakarta which is located in Hayam Wuruk and the other one in Kelapa Gading. My University has been my first choice because I believe that it as the ability to provide me with quality education.
I got up early that morning due to an improper sleep during the previous night. It was due to the anxiety to start fresh with my new life. I was determined to be the best in whatever it is that I do, so that I would have something to be proud of in the pages of my life. Due to the fear of reaching late during my first day, I reached one hour earlier than necessary and decided to spend some time at KTC (Kelapa gading Trade Center) which is located right beside the University. I was hoping that time would move a lot faster because I wanted to find out about what was going to happen next. But it is a common fact that if we are anxiously waiting for something, time would seem to crawl a lot slower. When it was finally the time to head back to the campus, I hoped for everything to go on smoothly, just as how I expected it. I braced myself and went to meet Sofia, who was responsible for the new students, to inquire about my classroom. After being instructed on which room to go to, I started walking towards the class, the mixture of excitement and nervousness start to fill within me. I started to feel like standard 1 all over again where I was a little kid who didn’,t know where to go. I didn’,t know anyone in the class except for Diksha who is my childhood friend.
The unique thing about this campus is that each classroom is named after a quality. For example, the classroom names are Unity, Humanity, and Innovation and so on. Just like the classroom name, a confident teacher entered our classroom.

Miss Caroline was our teacher for the day, she was going to be our economics teacher and she seemed to be a very competent one. She smartly introduced herself to us and then requested all of us to say a few things about ourselves. When it was my turn to introduce myself, I felt certain that I wanted to make a good impression on my first day. Some of my classmates who had introduced themselves before me seemed pretty confident and I hope I was as confident as them. We had 1 hour break in between the class and that is the time when I actually started to get to know some of my classmates. I feel delighted to make new friends at my first day. It is normally a tough thing to make friends as adults but everyone here seems to be very friendly and that was certainly something I was glad of. I had made a few very good friends and I hope that as time goes on, we can continue to have a strong everlasting bond.
My first day went as smoothly just as how I wanted it. I believe that choosing this University is one of the best decisions I have made in my life and I hope that this campus is up to my expectation.
In classroom studies, students take the advantages not only in the study and jobrelated areas but also in their daily lives. For example, in a classroom, studentsbecome friendly and ACCOMMODATING. In my opinion, these two things are veryimportant in life. If people have these two qualities then they can find success in lifevery easily, in each and every field. This is because sometimes we come in contactWITH good people and sometimes not. With these contacts people can know thedifficulties of life and get the experience of facing these difficulties. This is notpossible in self study. In a classroom, students feel joyful and get into the habit of competition as well. But in self study students are unable to make friends and lifeexperience in its true sense.All in all I would like to say classroom study is good as compared to self study.
Studying for a degree is personally and intellectually demanding. Some peoplecan tolerate a lot of stress, some can’t. Becoming more aware of your physicaland emotional reactions to stress and the effects of what you eat and drink inyour energy levels and mood will help gain greater control over your life – takingmore responsibility is one of the best ways to successfully manage stress.Our state of mind is constantly changing and responding to either positive or negative influences in our lives and the challenging and changing situations atuniversity can contribute to this. One view is that our mental health difficulties canbe seen as a ‘spectrum’ (or continuum). Most of the time, if we are lucky, positivefactors will be holding us near to the “well” end of the mental health spectrum.Sometimes, though, the negative factors start shifting us along towards the “notso well” end of the spectrum. If we are aware of this and seek help in time wecan shift ourselves back. Occasionally we may not be able to do this and mayfind ourselves near the “unwell” end of the spectrum.Pacing yourself is vital. Eating properly and making time to get a good nightsleep regularly is crucial for staying well and enjoying oneself.
