RANDTS will last a thousand years.

- Albert


Most of us here at RANDTS are now well past that strenuous stage of our lives that we all know too well as the SPM, or Malaysian Certificate Examination in English. Studying nine or more subjects in two years was a feat in itself, and to top it all off, the only way to guarantee success in the days post-SPM (a place in a tertiary educational institution, and eventually, a job) was to balance academic success with co-curricular activities. More often than not, we immersed ourselves in the activities of Prefectorial Boards, monitorial positions in class, martial arts, sports, and the like.

Those days are long gone now, and the cheerful carefree nature of high school has been replaced by the slightly more important atmosphere of university/college. It was hard indeed to move away from home for some, away from the friends we cherish and love, and mummy's delicious home-cooked food.

Adjusting has been a tricky business, what with learning to adapt away from home. But after the initial period of settling down in a new place, mixing with new people, turns out university/college life isn't so bad after all.

Or is it?

Here's an optional topic for those of you still cruising along looking for one. Share with us your memories of first entering your university/college. Just how different were our experiences, adjusting to a whole new world? How did you find yourself when you entered it? Perhaps most of the things only differ in small ways, while others may not have any differences at all!

Some guidelines if you write about this topic:

  1. How did you come to choose/enter your university/college?
  2. What happened when you arrived at your new place?
  3. Making friends, living independently; did these things come easy?
  4. Studies and books; just how different is your education now from that of high school?
  5. Other differences between high school and university/college life.
Pictures are most welcome if you'd like to share them! In time, we may come to find that the problems that we faced are, in fact, something everyone can relate to.
