As for a first year student , i already knew few things in advance because my brother was studying there.
Since its first time in college everything was brand new. So much things to learn so many new people. Oh wait, there were few people i knew from school, which means not every person was new for me but anyways it was overall exciting.
Best thing about this college, it look exactly the same as in pictures or in our college prospectus.
Worst thing about this college there’s so many differences between the two streams (in my opinion) .
UNAWARE OF SURROUNDING
If you’re not that out going person being a fresher there , activities will happen around you in the college and you won’t be able to sniff it. ( Thats first year) You’ll realize such curriculum were happened until the annual day.
There’s no bullying or ragging in our college but there’s an intro/introduction which sound scary for an introvert person but it isn’t, trust me. Seniors take intro only for the reason of preventing freshers disrespecting seniors plus to have a friendly bond.
THAT FAVORITE SPOT / CANTEEN
I think every st thomas college student love this spot but if you didn’t, that maybe because you love to stay indoors( no offence). College canteen was in outdoors and i loved that idea because it was surrounded by trees and not surrounded by four walls. We mostly hangout with our friends there and eat lots of food.
Everything has its drawback
Being open, no roof our canteen wasn’t friendly for every season. Being surrounded by trees ,definitely leaves will fall according to Newton’s gravitational forces to our delicious food that we are suppose to eat.
If you’re really up for learning, st thomas college is ready to teach you every hour, every day. Teachers are always ready to teach. There dedication is 10/10. Its only on us whether we wanted to attend their classes or not plus it effects our attendance.
THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TWO STREAMS
From 8 o’ clock morning science stream have their classes and from 1 o’clock noon commerce stream begin their class.
Not only time , we can find difference in both the student of the two streams. To be honest you may find more fashionable, more rich students studying in afternoon class then in morning one
Day shift students have more freedom(in my opinion) then morning shift students. They can have a voice but science students aren’t allowed to or they are suppressed by the authorities ( thats how i felt) .
A BITTER HOSTEL LIFE
I don’t like it at all. I only been there for one year and i felt like i’m a criminal being prisoned( honestly). Yep, we weren’t allowed to go out of college ( our hostel was inside the college campus). But we somehow manage to go out during class hour.
We had outings but only in alternate Sunday, only at one place ( where everything is expensive) and with our wardens for only two hours.
Can’t it be more worse then this?
A small blast occured in hostel entrance which caused us in terror because the only way for running out of the hostel was on fire and then we came to know hostel fire extinguisher was expired. I’m glad that blast happened because it gave the authorities to improve the system.
There are plenty of them and you can participate all of them if you have time.
I guess you can judge by yourself now but nothing can be perfect right. Maybe we didn’t get that opportunity like other students does but it was a heck of an experience.
ANOTHER AMAZING EXPERIENCE
Making new friends and sharing all those moments ( good/ bad) it was all worth it because i think i learned alot from it and thats why we need to experience it.
