I thought it was about time to write something about how college is going.
One thing about college that has genuinely surprised me has been how busy the place is. I’ve been at college for 7 weeks now, and is feels like it has been about 2. I mostly have classes in the morning, which I can manage with a good coffee. But along with other various meetings and groups, the day ends up rounding out with some revision, some readings and then an assignment or two. Along with church responsibilities and other things, by week seems to be over just when it is beginning.
Another aspect of college that has surprised me has been the friendliness of the staff here at college. The experience is like nothing I have ever experienced at an educational institution before. This week I was encouraged by their genuine care for their students. I’ve had many random conversations with faculty where this care has been demonstrated.
Along with this care, college has still be quite challenging. Mostly because I have not studied formally in 5 years.
So far college has been brilliant, I have learnt heaps and I’m looking forward to what the next 4 years will bring.
