My First Day In The Univeristy

By - - [ Real Matter ]

My First Day in University was so terrible, because i was a pampered child so i thought i was going to be pampered the same way i use to be pampered at home.

When i went to the bank to pay my fees it was like big work for me, because my Dad said no one should escort me because am grown up enough, although i couldn't do the payment until i saw my uncle there who helped me pay my fees which i lied to everyone at home that i was the one that paid it.

My registration also, i was left to do everything which i couldn't do, i feel i cant do things without someone going with me or helping me, it becoming serious i think am the shy type i need advice and encouragement please.

Do you have similar experience? Are you a graduate? How was experience back in school day? Kindly share with us.

my advice is for you to out away the shyness because there are still manY things to do in the University than payment of school fee and all.. So try to practice at home..how to deal with the mass... So as to be perfect in doing things alone.. Because towards your final year. .You will be asked to defend your project and this would be at the front of your fellow mate.. So make changes now or never!!!

My first day was a really funny one,i was very ashamed and i feel inferior as i have a small stature then,i dont have much clothes while other students put on expensive and nice clothes. I raised my school fees late and was few days to exam before i could start payment process,even though i have nobody to assist me or put me through.. Each office i enter i received different abuse before they attend to me,i will even have to go on so many errands for them. But now i look back and thank God for my life.

Everyone's first day in the university is always a memorable one. All you need to do is to brace yourself up and be ready for the task ahead of you. You've to think for yourself and make decision for yourself if not in no time you will get people who would be making decision for you. So brace yourself up and be ready for the task ahead.

I remember my first day in the university like it was just yesterday. It was on a Wednesday and the school was busy, student and staff walking everywhere.  I was so shy cause I was with my big bag and everyone was just staring at me. I almost told my mum that I want to go back because of the stares but I thank God by this time next year I will be a graduate.

Well have never been in University before I don't have any experience about it, my advice for is to put your shyness aside and be you because there's alot to come your way being in University and you will have to face that your self your family will not be there to pamper you anymore so be wise and be you

First days in schools are mostly like that, my advice for u is to find a way to mix with good people who can help u do away with ur shyness and start attempting things by yourself because its gonna be a long journey and u need to prepare yourself for the future

Confidence is the key!

I'm also a shy person, but when it comes to matters that I have to socialize in order to get something, I do everything possible to suppress the shyness and be brief and precise as possible.

My first day in uni wasn't nice cos I almost missed lectures for that day cos I didn't know anyone there and I didn't even know the directions to take but I summoned the courage to talk to a man who seemed like a lecturer who told me what to do

Well i i won't blame you cause its the same thing that happens to most of us as well but i will advise you to try and be independent while doing things in order not to get exploited by some people. The University is like a very large house that has different people under one roof

The university isn't like a secondary school where things are being made easy. You struggle for yourself and you don't have to keep depending on people to do everything for tou. Your parents know the reason why they asked you to do your registration yourself. It's of good help to you dear, your parents won't always be around when you are asked to do certain things like this. So you better gather all the courage you need, put away shyness because the university is totally a different world out of the secondary school.

Well there is this statement my Dad always tells us,that if you want something done, you should do it yourself and stop looking for others to rely on. So that's just the plain fact, when you keep needing people around especially in the university, it will get to a stage where even your exams will be difficult for you to write on your own, doing things alone build your confidence, because before you graduate you have to present your seminar and defend your project in front of your lecturers.so self confidence is very important in all areas of your life not only  in the university alone but in all aspects of ones life.

To overcome shyness you need to engage in activities that require speaking to people, may be you can be an assistant course rep in your department, that will also help you to overcome laziness because if u remember you have duties to meet up with, you will have no choice than to stand up to your feet. I was a shy type, but been a course rep then helped me to be self confident and vibrant. Hope this helps you to

It's high time you start learning how to do things yourself as you're no longer a kid. If you keep on behaving like a pampered child in school, they will take advantage of you and ride. So be smart and do things yourself

My first day in the university was a memorable one, I left Lagos all alone with some huge amount of money on me, and did all my registration all by myself, non of my family knew anything about my well being but o had to act up like a man and be focused.

It's really a nice experienced being an otonfo in the university experience, met lovely people and it's really a good one.

My first day at the University was a tremendous day for me, it's a day I will never forget. I am a proud student of the university of Benin.I can remember how I was looking for my lecture hall for more than an hour, while the hall I right in front of me. Also I can remember how I entered bus from main gate to auditorium,I didn't know that the building close to where I entered bus is the auditorium. In fact my first day in school was so frustrated for me.

A little advise I have for you is that you should know what you went their to do and to take your studies as the main priority because no one are there to monitor your movement.

I own first day was not to bad.. Because I had some challenges in time of registering.. The busy man was angry with me in mood of dreasing... So I believe it still new.. Take everything and believe u over come it

Well, according to your story, i wouldn't really blame you since you were actually pampered as a kid. But what i want you to understand right now is that you're now in the universiy and there is no one here to help you run your petty errands and other stuffs. So you just have to man up and be strong.

I too fall in you shy type group....am in 100lv here in my university,I have no friends even my course mates ,I get too shy and end up secluding myself from everyone..I try my best to socialize but it just doesn't seem to work.

My advice for you is to overcome that shyness, shyness most times comes as a result of you being insecure about a particular or some things and you must learn to overcome it however way you feel is best for you. There are lots of things to do asides the fees and all, you can or may be asked to present projects and assignments, so you have to overcome shyness.

Quote

My first day in the univeristy - By Onwa Matthew - 2019-10-04 20:13:27

Well, I didn't have the same experience with you. I hustle my way into University. I did everything on my own. My advice to you is that you should learn how to do things on your own with waiting for help from anyone especially your family because time will come when you have to do it without anyone help. When you married, you will have to take care of your family and family will not be there for you. So, come out from your comfort zone and face the World

It might seem difficult for you since all your life people help you do things but to help yourself out go out to public places more,being shy is quite different from being able to do things yourself because truth be told in life you only have yourself to lean on so start now do your own chores and socialise too

My first day at Higher Institutions. So terrible the first day when I enter my institution. It is so frustrated when I get  there. I thought it is like secondary school where am coming from. Until they ask me to sign ordinary Admission letter at our Permanent site and they asked me to pay money for signature. That is when I know why they named it Higher Institution.

It is like that for most people whom have similar home bringing. But the earlier you realize that the school is not home the better. Just fix your mind on the kind of person you aspire to be and take schooling as a process, you'll definitely come out of being shy.

Quote

My first day in the univeristy - By Nwosu Vincent - 2019-10-04 20:50:54

I was ones like that, despite I wasn't that pampered but I was ones a shy type. But in other for you to over come it, you have to believe that there's nothing you can't do as far as your mates are doing. Pick confidence within your self, that's all.

First day of school.. ​​​​​​☺ ☺

It was quite fun. Looking back now, four years ago.. I've never been to boarding school, I had to cope with staying alonr and with strangers at least while you're just meeting them.. But higher institution, gives you the opportunity, space and environment to pick up lifelong lessons ​​​​​​​​​ that will either make or mar one. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

My first day in school was really interesting. I was serious the whole day and I had lot of fun. You don't know the kind of friends you are gonna make on the first day, untill you get to know them and spend more time with them. But the first day is mostly he best day in school because you will have to see new places and meet new people.

U just need to be bold...m a shy type too, but once I notice the word "WHO CARES"then I became bold to take any step and if I make any mistakes or something I stand up again and try till it works for me ...things u don't understand u can easily ask grown up pple To Help u out and through that u will be able to forge ahead in life without being shy.. Remember the word WHO CARES... Cos it helped me a great deal

It's okay to ask to feel like you need someone to guide you through especially if you are not used to it. Being shy on the other hand might seem cute sometimes but it does have negative effects on your self esteem and you in general.

Oh my goodness

My first day was not awesome at all, I was a complete stranger to most of the facilities, in fact anytime I hear them say we are having class, I don't even bother to know the venue, but the moment I see group of students running, I will just join them to run, and most times they were not even my course mate, it was as difficult as that.

First day in universty is always a stressful one, expecially for the shy ones, am not yet in university, but I experienced it the day I went for my post utme, it was somehow tedious and stressful because I couldn't do things my own way, I don't want to be laughed at, but no worries the fears will soon be gone.

Mine was very uneasy during those days in my first year at school. I had to do my clearance, while also going for lectures and at same time doing some jobs to raise money to be able to clear some depart mental dues and I went through all of it myself and finished on time before the long queues.

My first day in the univeristy - By Ndukwe Ikechukwu - 2019-10-04 22:32:56

My first day was not really that rosy and all bread and butter. Registeration, clearance and making payments was all done on a cue and some were done under the great heat of the scorching sun. At some point I was already tired of the whole thing but then that was just the beginning of my struggles as a Nigerian student.

Hello my good friend, am not sure if shyness will lead you to any were on earth, more over I think your Dad is training to make you the real preson you alto to be, because your husband or wife will never be proud of you when he or shi discover that you can't make things right on your own 

So my dear think about it

Is just like we are from the same family... The same thing happened to me 

I started paying my school fees to the bank since my secondary school days, it was hard though because I was also a shy guy but with time I overcomed it 

Just keep trying!

My dear my advice for you is to forget the issue of been pampered because you are now in another part of the world where you will be faced with many challenges like tests, assignments, group and personal projects, examinations among others, so all you need to do is to put your home feeling aside and have sense of belong as a student and not a kid. Nobody will handle your life for you because your destiny lies in your hands

I don't have such experience cos am always outspoken with great courage to face crowd or any personality 

I think your main problem is lack of courage to address issue before you which you have to change from the habit cos it will affect your life progress if you don't change 

You have to learn to do things on your own eradicate fear you have for others

My first day in school was hectic because i was left to travel down to delta state from lagos state on my own  being the first child I saw it as an opportunity to be responsible for the first time without supervision from my parents and other adults. It wasnt easy because theh were situations where i needed guidance from an adult but by God's grace I've been able to cope and so far it has been a lovely experience

University is really a cool place to be, that has always been everyone dream aleast to go to the university .

It gives us open opportunities to doing things, so my advice is that you learn to stand for your self look right into people's face 

My first time in the university was also somehow but with time I fit in. it's just a matter of time.

We all feel the same way but you have to stand up on your two legs to overcome the stress in school. When you do it yourself you aqcuire experience and knowledge.

You're already grown up,so you have to learn how to start being dependent.

University life is different from secondary school life where your being pampered. Your parents won't be there for you everytime,You have to learn to make decisions yourself,you meet different people,you learn how to interact with different kind of people.

It's a new environment so you have to learn how to adapt to it...

My first day was quite cool. I didn't expect to be pampered maybe this is because I already spent 5 years in a boarding school. In fact I was expecting the worst. I made friends though, I also did all my registration myself. Today I'm in 400l and it's one memory I will never forget.
