First day at college? Umm, mixed feelings, right? We know that you have been excited to hit the college life and be more happening and all… but the feeling is just not on point now.
Don’t worry! It happens to everyone. We have been there and can feel you. No matter how excited you are for this day, we all want to escape it for all the possible reasons. But hey, don’t do that!
The first day of the college is really very important and you must attend it. If you are worried about how to nail the first day or make the most out of it, then continue reading.
Yes, we are that good to help you with everything possible. *wink*
Look dapper to the core
As they say, the first impression is the last impression, so take this seriously. Dress like you are going to see your worst enemy (can be your ex’s present) or like you are going to impress someone (maybe the cutest guy in the batch).
Lovelies, the point here is to dress in an amazing outfit, look your best and leave a mark. A good personality does make an impact, gals, trust this holy piece of advice.
Explore the campus in style
Yes, just like Alia Bhatt’s sassy style from SOTY or even the OTT style of Poo from K3G. It is okay if you don’t have your friends with you on this day. You can manage it all alone.
After all, you are already in a dapper outfit and you look confident. So, instead of standing in one corner and looking at people, go out and explore the campus. You will know a lot about your college which is eventually going to help you out in the next few months.
Don’t hesitate to make friends
First things first, everyone is as nervous as you. Everyone will hesitate to make new friends but everyone wants that. So, you can be the first person to shake hands with other people and make friends.
You cannot pass your college life without friends and this is for sure. So, leave your ego, your shy nature and everything of the sort behind and go shake hands with everyone. You never know who your comfort partner is.
The first day of the college is all about giving an introduction and exchanging conversations. So, be very active in this. Be interactive with your fellow mates. Be super interactive with your professors and let them know your name. Also, answer their questions, take part in the conversations and basically do everything rather than just sitting and staring from a corner.
Make plans to catch up at the canteen
One of the best ways to break the ice during the first day of your college is making plans to catch up with all your new friends at the canteen.
Look out for groups and activities
Chances are high that you would be asked to join various groups and clubs for the extra-curricular activities. Make the most out of this opportunity. It is a good chance to make more friends, make your college life interesting and be in the good deeds of the teachers.
Exchange your contacts with friends
This is essential. After all, you need to decide the number of lectures to attend, to bunk and how to manage the attendance and so on. Take the initiative and exchange the numbers with your good friends that you think you have made on the very first day and take this friendship to the next level with them.
