Do you remember your first day in the university? Well, I remember my first day I was waiting all the summer to enter at the university. I felt excited and at the same time I was very nervous because it was my first day in the university and I didn't know any person. My first day in the university was good.
I didn't know how to arrive to my classroom. I was lost and I had to ask one person about the building where I was going to take classes. This person was very nice and told me the right direction. I walked to the building, and when I arrived I saw some people and I felt strange.
I approached to one girl and I asked for the classroom and we discovered that we where in the same group and I felt less nervous. I introduced myself and She also did it, her name was Yuriko. We came in the classroom and the time to start classes began.
When we began our classes, all our classmates were quiet, nobody talked. the teacher arrived early. she started the class and after that we introduced ourselves. Then I saw my others classmates and I looked at two girls they were Greta and Eli.
I approached with them and I talked with Greta and Eli . I introduced myself, then they did the same and we began to know more about each other, like where we were from or what we did. After that, we spent the rest of the day together until we had to go home.
I am always going to remember that day because I had the opportunity to meet more people and the most important I met the best friends that I have ever had. Finally, I think that it is natural that on the first day we feel nervous, but the things always have a happy ending, that's why I say that my first day in the university was very good.
My university experiences thus far have been amazing. I have learned and experienced so many new things in such a short period of time, and it has gone by so fast. I am still discovering all the opportunities that university offers me. UNB is a very welcoming place, and from the first day, I felt at home here. I have made many new friends from many different backgrounds. There are Vietnamese and Singaporean students on my floor in residence and that has allowed me an insight into their cultures.
My classes are great and I enjoy every one of them, especially biology. The depth and detail of what we are leaning is far beyond my high school experience. It is just amazing to think that even the tiniest details on the subatomic level can have such a huge impact. My physics class is also interesting because it is physics for the Life Sciences. In high school we discussed mechanical aspects of physics, but now we are relating them to organisms and movement. It has made me realize how everything action is related to forces. That is probably the best part of university. It introduces so many new concepts that changes our view of the world. I am also taking introductory Chinese, which I greatly enjoy. Learning a new language is challenging but it is very rewarding. The course load is intense, so time management is key.
As for extracurricular activities, I am part of our house Glee team. It is an annual charity completion, within all the residences on campus. I am also in our house charity committee. Our house charity is Breast Cancer Research. Another thing a really enjoy on campus is going to the gym. I try to go at least four times a week.
Time has been flying by and it’s hard to believe that we have been on campus for two months already. Life at UNB is a great experience that I plan to make the most out of.
