Transcript first day anxiety The annual blood drive was held on the first day of school to allow students to give blood in between classes and help out others. Photo by Pin Lim in theb epinnmi • • • • First Day of Classes Created, Anticipation, and Frustration, untkUv Students All students share similar memories of the first day of school. We gasp for air as we grab our backpack and jump out of our car. We are grateful that almost after an hour of searching for a parking space, we finally find one fifteen minutes away next to Wendys Restaurant. This does not include the hour we spent fighting the early morning traffic, on the way to school. Like any freshman starting fresh in this huge university, the day could only become more hectic. Already many changes are to be faced. Starting college means making new friends that could turn into valuable relationships. Tlie first day of classes can be frighten- ing .mil exciting at the same time. Emotions vary with Bach individual and according to each classification. "I'm very excited because I know I'll meet new people, and 1 plan to have fun and study hard!' Business Administration freshman. Yesenia Molina said. On the other hand, junior Samer Baba said, "It was pretty easy, same thing over and over because I just finished summer school:' While opinions and memories vary ^ among students, everyone shares something in common. One such commonality was getting lost at the university. To help students find their way on campus, faculty and staff volunteered in Cougar First Impressions to set up booths across campus to provide us with directions to our destinations. "One of the main reasons for me being scared was not finding my classes" Molina said. Also, Cougar First Impressions provided relief from the hot day by supplying students with bottled water, The first day of classes came to an end when students left to their homes. As we evaluated our day and used the walking made to and from our car as exercise, we thought how much easier it was going home without all the traffic and the hassle the early morning brings us. Of course, the next day would come, but hopefully many students have already adapted to college life and the fast pace it brings. "All students, including incoming students, are expected to be familiar with the campus within 24 hours;' Scholars community English T.A. Robert Vellani said. -Jacqueline Gil lOlStadent Life The cougar information tables provided a convenient opportunity for students to seek help on the first day of school. Photo by Pin Lim Many students wait until the first day of classes to but their textbooks. Luckily the bookstore is able to handle the flow of students with speedy customer service.
