Finally, after the long wait of four months, the first day of college!!
The day started with the annual almOSAlan at the Copeland Gymnasium. There was a bunch of food everywhere care of the orgs, frats, and soros. We had no tray to hold our food except for our hands and that’s where the problem comes in. I was holding so much food and I kept telling the upperclassmen that I can’t take more but they always said, “No, take this,” and kept putting more food in my hands (and arms). I ended up giving some food away but I was full, indeed!
After an hour or so, the Freshmen Convocation began at the same place. There were speeches, awarding, intermission numbers and of course, roll calls! Our bloc was so hyper and noisy that our college chairperson told us that we bring life to our college. It was quite boring and hot though and at times, we didn’t understand what was going on. Some of us decided to leave early and look for a place to eat instead.
We ate at Chowking just outside of the university. It was a good thing there’s enough room for us, especially since it’s lunch time. There wasn’t enough time to hang around though since we had the department orientation at 1PM. There were speeches, awarding and org videos as well.
Unlike the others, we didn’t have a college orientation so the others headed home while the rest of us went to Moonleaf for drinks. There was a free wifi connection (yay!) and my blocmates decided to have fun with my Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. They changed my photos and posted random statuses. Well, I did the same to them. Haha!
I did a quick outfit change before heading to the Gym for the Freshmen Night. There were roll calls again, games and bands. We had our own world though and after the free dinner, we left early to hang out at a quieter place. We then headed home before 10PM (damn curfew).
Here’s to college life!!
