The Ten Mistakes of College Life
College life is the most beautiful phase of life. It’s probably like a Rollercoaster ride which begins with loads of excitement. And though it ends in the flash of a second, the thrill you experience in that one ride is something to cherish forever. College life definitely wins over school life in the matter of ‘Freedom’, where students undergo a complete transformation from head to heel. A transformation from ‘Nerds’ to ‘Studs’ and ‘Tomboys’ to ‘Fashionistas’.
But, as said, “All that glitters is not gold”, College life isn’t exactly as it seems. The more freedom you get, the more of an Outlaw you become, and ultimately the more of punishment falls upon you! Punishment, quite simply, is an act to penalize wrongdoing, which hinders you from doing it further. Punishment creates fear. Gone are the days when teachers used to terrorize us by those ’10 rounds of playground’ and ‘Write-it-100-times’ kind of punishments! A college-student fears only the following four things:
•Reproval by the HOD
•Complaint to Parents
Atleast inside the campus, one should keep a straight path and stay kilometres away from the things/activities which could lead to the above stated punishments. Here, let’s get aware and have a look upon “The Ten Mistakes in College which could lead to Punishment“.
If you’re thinking of bunking classes, or even bunking college, (if you’re more of a daredevil, and yayy! It’s Friday!!), please be assured that your parents will be thoroughly informed about all your whereabouts.
Taking a proper Intro is appreciable. Try not to go too far and cross the limit, only for a few moments of entertainment.
Everyone loves home. Some love it to such an extent that they don’t mind missing their college for days and weeks. Once you receive that ‘Wretched Call’ from the HOD, you’ll be dragged out. Then, you’ll be fined and you won’t be able to sit in your exams either!
4. Damage to college Property
Treating the college property as your own doesn’t mean you can break the glasspanes and the benches and electric boards and stuff. Doing this will get you into big time trouble, beware.
Why to involve HODs and faculties into petty issues when you can solve them out peacefully? Why to call for troops of your so called ‘Brothers’ to show off your power? Try sorting out your differences by yourselves to avoid any kind of mess!
6. Improper Dress-Code
Yeah, everyone likes to look like a Hero. But no, you cannot come to college any way you feel like. If you desperately want to be charged a fine, you may go ahead!
Never misbehave with the Faculty or the students or girls. Respect them. It would spoil your image too.
8. Never returning books
If you think you can escape with that book you issued months ago, and didn’t return, you’re mistaken. Go and return it as soon as possible to avoid the huge amount of fine charging.
9. Foul/Abusive language
Watch your language while you talk. Foul language can make a bad impression on the people around you. Maintain decency in your words to avoid chiding.
10. Illegal activities
Say NO to drinking/smoking/drugs and stuff inside the college to avoid restigation. These don’t make you look ‘Cool’, you look like a ‘Fool’ instead!
As is said, “With freedom, comes responsibility”. Why to regret things when you can prevent them right away. So, understand your responsibilities and make use of your freedom wisely. Be wise and act wise.
