College is Just Another World

College, possibly the twilight years of a youth’s educational experience, is also regarded by some as a “honeymoon” period. For me personally, choosing one was not a walk in the park, which a lot of my peers would agree with. You get bombarded with questions when choosing one. What am I going to pursue? Where can I go for that? Is it recognised by the MQA?

BEHIND THE SCENE SEMINAR

Being a second-year diploma Journalism student, one of my subject requirements under Public Relations was to attend events for exposure on event management. Initially, I was reluctant to attend one seminar called Behind the Scene as I felt the idea of spending three hours listening to a talk would be a waste of time. But how wrong I was! It turned out to be the best seminar I have ever attended.

Till We Drop!!

YES! I decided to go to a well-known private university — Asia Pacific University(APU/APIIT). It is such a diverse university. Attending this university gave me a scare at first as no one else from my high school was with me and I had this feeling that I was totally going to drop!

Here, is it a requirement for each scholar to fulfil a community service project during our foundation year. My team decided to proceed to an orphanage and an old folk’s home in Perak

My freshman year

I can say for sure that college is definitely not what I was expecting it to be. Let me tell you about my college experience. Being a sub-science A-level
student in Sunway University, life is no bed of roses. I arrived for my orientation on March 31, 2014 for the accelerated version of the A-Levels course which means 15 months instead of 24. We were a relatively small intake but it was fun nevertheless. We had insightful talks by our lecturers and on the final day had a Treasure Hunt activity that really brought us together as a group.

Actuarial science student

People always say that studying abroad is the best thing in the world. You get the chance to travel with friends and explore other parts of the world. But rarely do they mention all the difficult parts about studying abroad, like the lack of halal food (for Muslims) and the extremely cold weather in winter. Oh, and not to mention the homesickness too.
