My University is an educational institution which is widely recognized all over the world. It originated from Philippines and collaborates with PSBA (Philippine School of Business Administration). It has 2 branches in Jakarta which is located in Hayam Wuruk and the other one in Kelapa Gading. My University has been my first choice because I believe that it as the ability to provide me with quality education.
I got up early that morning due to an improper sleep during the previous night. It was due to the anxiety to start fresh with my new life. I was determined to be the best in whatever it is that I do, so that I would have something to be proud of in the pages of my life. Due to the fear of reaching late during my first day, I reached one hour earlier than necessary and decided to spend some time at KTC (Kelapa gading Trade Center) which is located right beside the University. I was hoping that time would move a lot faster because I wanted to find out about what was going to happen next. But it is a common fact that if we are anxiously waiting for something, time would seem to crawl a lot slower. When it was finally the time to head back to the campus, I hoped for everything to go on smoothly, just as how I expected it. I braced myself and went to meet Sofia, who was responsible for the new students, to inquire about my classroom. After being instructed on which room to go to, I started walking towards the class, the mixture of excitement and nervousness start to fill within me. I started to feel like standard 1 all over again where I was a little kid who didn’,t know where to go. I didn’,t know anyone in the class except for Diksha who is my childhood friend.
The unique thing about this campus is that each classroom is named after a quality. For example, the classroom names are Unity, Humanity, and Innovation and so on. Just like the classroom name, a confident teacher entered our classroom.
Miss Caroline was our teacher for the day, she was going to be our economics teacher and she seemed to be a very competent one. She smartly introduced herself to us and then requested all of us to say a few things about ourselves. When it was my turn to introduce myself, I felt certain that I wanted to make a good impression on my first day. Some of my classmates who had introduced themselves before me seemed pretty confident and I hope I was as confident as them. We had 1 hour break in between the class and that is the time when I actually started to get to know some of my classmates. I feel delighted to make new friends at my first day. It is normally a tough thing to make friends as adults but everyone here seems to be very friendly and that was certainly something I was glad of. I had made a few very good friends and I hope that as time goes on, we can continue to have a strong everlasting bond.
My first day went as smoothly just as how I wanted it. I believe that choosing this University is one of the best decisions I have made in my life and I hope that this campus is up to my expectation.
