8 Things That Happen On The First Day Of College

1. Campus Darshan


The college institution feels like TARDIS. A small obscure gate through which you enter and then inside you see a full blown building with grounds vast enough to land a UFO! The first thing you’ll make sure you know is the location of the canteen, because, food.


2. Classroom confusion


Because it’s your first day and you don’t know your way around the place and no one hands you a map, you’ll find yourself running like a headless chicken across the campus trying to find the dratted room.


3. Teachers’ orientation


Even before you know who your fellow classmates are, you’ll know who’ll be teaching you via the orientation. And you’ll try your best to be attentive because you don’t want to get into trouble.


4. Self introduction

The first time a teacher asks everyone to introduce yourself, you are slightly nervous because you have no idea what to say. So, this happens.


5. Endless introduction


Once you successfully (sort of) introduce yourself, you get highly distracted and don’t pay much attention. Everyone becomes automatically forgettable, except those who catch your eye.


6. Break-time bonding

There you are, trying to find sitting space during break in the canteen. But then you accidentally eavesdrop on a conversation, casually drift over to the group and before you know it, you have bonded over books, music and that obscure YouTube video of a dog pooping on a baby.


7. Settling with the class


Post-break, you’ll find yourself calmer, happier and you re-enter with more people than you’d left with. You’ll also find it easier to not pay attention during lectures.


8. Relief that DAY ONE is over

Exchange contact information, promise to send friend requests on Facebook and Instagram and you whiz out the college gates, with a sense of reprieve. You feel better now that you have people you know and a more concrete sense of what’s coming.
