New boy in Town!

Freshman are the most attractive and the demanding kids from the seniors of the high school or colleges because these are the people that seniors want to play around with them for a while and make them to do various activities like to sing in front of everyone, propose a girl/boy, do something stupid and stuffs like that, today I am a junior now in my college and since this fallwe are going to have number of freshman this year, so at first I was planning with my friends what to make “Freshies” do for us this year, making sure we are within the limits and then I felt pitty for them as we once a freshman too, so I decided to blog about this topic especially for the “freshies” so as to what to do during their initial stage at college or high school.

Make Friends
Make Friends

As you know guys this fall/spring you all going to be living and leading a new turn in your life, many obstacles and surmountable things are going to be coming in your way but you should always keep in mind “To Believe in yourself”. Not all the things are bad in your college/high school life sometimes these situations and circumstances has to be there to make yourself more confident, better and more educated!, always take these things in a positive manner and let the beauty of the life be preserved.

These are the things a “Freshman” must do when he/she joins his college/high school and must keep in mind that these are only the initial steps to be taken, rest can be handled by their own


Since you just joined your professional institute, make sure that you make your friends at first day, I am sure I sound like impossible but trust me there are a couple of other kids who also wants to make friends like you and make their first day special too. Even make friends with your seniors, as they can be very helpful for you during your stay.


Ok, now this is the most difficult part for the freshman I am going to ask them to do, “Enjoy Ragging” of yours and others, don’t be scared because the seniors won’t eat you, they are just a regular normal kids like you who wants to be friends and want you to talk with them. They want to know you who you are, where you came from and etc.


Zero week or the first week at the college is considered to be the hectic and crucial time for the freshman, as he has just entered in the institute and trying to understand the culture of the college, people and ofcourse teachers!.Don’t worry if you didn’t pay attention to your first lecture or didn’t make the friends yet, you can race them back and be punctual from the next week.

Social Networking
Social Networking


Ah Yes the Societies!, for the freshman to join societies is the most important thing for them , not joining the societies won’t effect them much , but they could be deprived from

New Senior friends

Up coming events in college/high school

Personality development

Resume impact, being an active member in the society

and much more. So it’s cruicial for the freshies. Don’t just be drawn in the sea of assignments and pop quizzes but also take some for your self development, in which societies play a very vital role.

Now all the Freshman out there keep in mind that you are now entering in that life in which all the things shall be accountable on your behalf, you will be questioned for each and every thing and make sure to make the most of the time your spending there because at the end of the day, when you filter all the things from your experiences you are going to get something which would be your strength for the rest of your life! here I am placing a video which will definitely be helping you a lot before you start your new year and will not let you end up in the situations in which you can't help it like a "Drop out" or getting bad grades and etc. Enjoy reading my hub =)
