Writer’s Workshop: Undergrad Years

Being a college student was something which I enjoyed back then in the 90s. It was a time filled with fun and excitement.

18 years ago while studying in Melbourne, Australia life was much simpler. There was less things to worry and stress about. I only needed to concentrate on my studies and was free to participate in any activities which I fancy. It was the first time that I didn’t have to worry about curfews and staying out late. It was okay to party till late if I wished to. I was only accountable to myself.

I enjoyed being able to make friends with people from different races and cultures.  Attending classes in lecture halls and not having to wear a uniform like when I was studying in Singapore was a really different experience for me.  It was really nice to be able to wear whatever I fancied. Actual lesson time wasn’t as long with only 3 hours slotted for lectures/tutorials per subject and I could study/revise at my own pace.

During my undergrad years what I loved most was the time spent off campus together with my friends. We would gather in each others house to have our meals together, play cards or watch DVDs on the weekend. Going for movies, dating and visiting different places around Australia during our term break. Those are times I cherish.

How was your undergrad years like?
