My first day at college was one of the beautiful days of my life. I still remember that day as if it were only yesterday. I have never been able to forget my first day at college. I still remember the day when after the declaration of my Matriculation result, I was planning to get admission to a college. Many excited and heated discussions took place on the choice of subjects and college. My first choice was Govt. College. It was the best College of not only our city but also the province. So, my family decided for it and I applied for admission to Govt. College.

“I was about to enter a new World.”

After a few days, the list of successful candidates was displayed on the notice board of the college and I was among the lucky candidates who were granted admission. I was allotted Roll number and I was proud of being the student of Govt. College. I will always be thankful to Allah Almighty that I got admission to a grand college like Govt. College. The college had a wonderful building, vast playgrounds and devoted Professors.

The grand traditions, good mannerism, and friendly atmosphere made a great difference to my life. My first-day entry in college always fascinates me.


My first day at college was a blend of joy, excitement, fear and surprise. I got up early in the morning, offered my Fajar prayer and recited the verses of the Holy Quran. I took breakfast, wore the college uniform and got ready to go to college. My father dropped me at the college gate. When I entered the college gate, it was written on my face that it was my first day at college. I had mixed feelings of fear and joy. I could not believe that it was my first day at college. It was all like a dream.

The moment I stepped into my college, an exciting environment attracted me. There was a great hustle and bustle in the college. The college corridors were crowded with the students. I found myself among smart and active boys. They were the senior students who had arrived early to make first year fools of the new students. Most of us got nervous. They greeted the newcomers with funny remarks. It was a special way of welcoming the new students to the college. The same had happened to them on their first day at college.

The first-day fooling was done in a mannered way. The new students were asked to sing songs, dance in front of the seniors and do funny things. Altogether it was an enjoyable action-packed day.

One of the most impressive traditions of the college was to arrange a welcome party for the new students. There was a grand welcome party. We had been invited by our Worthy Principal. It was a very emotional gathering. The Principal, in his address, welcomed the new comers. His speech was full of useful tips for a successful practical life. In the end, we were served refreshment and had an official photograph with the Worthy Principal and our Professors.

We attended some classes on the first day. In most of the classes, teacher-student introduction activity took place. We were guided about books and other matters. We realized that the college had very learned, experienced and devoted Professors. It proved true during my stay at the college. Gradually my nervousness and shyness decreased. I will never forget the experience of my first meeting with new friends and the teachers of the college. It was indeed an opening to a new life of freedom and pleasure.

At the end of the first day, I returned home. When I was returning home, all the memories of my first day at college came to my mind. It was like a film. It had fun and fear. I remembered all the happenings and reached home with a smile. I had entered the college to gain knowledge and wisdom and to become a good citizen. Thanks, Almighty Allah I got what I wished. I wrote my memories in a special diary as well.



the college life is an ideal part of student life. I was greatly inspired by my college

Professors. They developed in me a thirst for knowledge. They infused confidence in my personality. I learnt that in words of Helen Keller:

“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial

and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”

The time I spent in college was a very valuable asset of my life. Thus, my first day at college came to an end and left behind unforgettable memories.


In the end, I can say that college life is a bouquet of beautiful and fragrant memories. Right from my first day, every day spent in the college was full of colorful events. Surely,
