The Golden Life of Students in University
Student life is golden life; it is the moment of pure joy and happiness as their minds are free from cares and worries and they consider it as the most important part of human life.
In this period, the character of man is built.
The primary duty of a student is to learn and to acquire knowledge.
“In campus life, we must do all our work at the right moment and maintain punctuality and discipline. Personally, I know that if we become successful in our student career and our characters are built on a sound basic, we will be able to shine in any sphere of life and serve our societies and countries,” says Mike, an undergraduate in Makerere University, Kampala
A good student never waste his/her time fixed for reading uselessly. But he/she must not be a book-worm being always engaged in his studies. He/she should also be careful about his/her health and spend some time daily in some sports and games and have some quality time. Students need to also try to develop the body and mind at the same time.
Students are also the future hope of a country. So every student should try to be the best citizen in all respect, so that they may serve their countries as far as they can.
“As a student i try to develop my intellect. I also try to acquire some good qualities like obedience, dutifulness, respect on elders and love and sympathy for fellow man in the society. I think our duty as student right now is to obey our parents and teachers and respect the elders of the society and work hard towards not just making a difference but being the difference,” says Christine, an undergraduate in Cavendish University.
Many students enter college/University expecting good times, friendship and a good sense of direction. They soon find out that colleges/Universities come with challenges and struggles because of the great demands and expectations that are put on the importance of education. Students experience a great deal of stress many times. Thus, it is very important for them to manage a proper routine and stick to it. When things are hard, that’s when you know you’re doing it right. Students are the future leaders of a nation. The prosperity of a nation depends on its students.
“We have a responsibility to acquire proper education, maintain good character and live a respectable social life. Obedience, diligence, regularity and forbearance are the important parts of student life. We must learn perseverance; it is the root of all success. If we are idle and cannot move on according to time, we can achieve nothing,” says Ladu a student at St. Lawrence University.
In short, a student’s life is all about a lot of discipline, hard work punctuated by ecstatic moments of fun and enjoyment. Fun increase after real hard work and you tend to enjoy more than those who had been lazy and have wasted their time. I think this period of your life is most wonderful period – full of spontaneity, dreams and hope, not a care in the world, except for studying.
The campus life is generally a period of youth. All the students read in a spirit of togetherness. They forget their joys and sorrows. They read together, play together and sit together. In these days their minds contain some youthful dreams which come true as they grow in age.
School is the right place for the fulfilment of the youthful desires. Students take part in games and sports, drama, presentations, debate competitions and more. School also gives the foundation for the budding poets, scientists, writers, doctors, engineers, painters and musicians. It is in school that the students enjoy the affection of their teachers and Teachers act as the guides and guardians to guide them on the right path.
