These days, I can feel more energy around our campus compared to the last several months. It probably has a lot to do with the new faces entering university full of expectations and new hope. Just seeing their vibrant faces makes me happy. And I really hope these young people’s lives as freshmen become abundant with fruitful and interesting things.
At the start of my university life, I was so ill at ease because of the long gaps between lectures and the different way of teaching after high school. Meeting new people was also an awkward thing for me. The more I think about it, I have a lot of regrets from my first year at the university. It’s hard to live totally without regret, but you can do something to minimize it, and make the most of your time at university.
With this in mind, I want to mention some activities available for freshmen to enjoy. These are open to everyone. You might want to choose study, love, involvement in a dongari, or making great friends. You might try all of them once. Of course, it might be good to absorb yourself in just one of these things, like discussing life with your drinking buddies or getting one scholarship after another through the whole year.
But devotion to only one thing doesn’t seem like a very good idea, because if you are absorbed in only one thing you may miss out on other important things. People who spend their whole year drinking will worry about their grades when they become a senior; people who are absorbed in love feel empty of mind when they break up; people who just care about their grades regret their narrow personal relations.
So, in the first year of your university life, it’s important to enlarge your experience and extend your knowledge. It is a good experience to take part in all the events for freshmen that are held early in semester, and involvement in a dongari will also give you an exciting experience. So, thanks to your wise choices, next year, when you look back on your first year of campus life, you will regret your life as little as possible.
