The first-year degree students flocked to the green campus of Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College with excitement recently to start their college life all over again.The atmosphere in the college was quite euphoric.

Although everyone was quite familiar with the first day of college drill, many said they walked in with the same anticipation and nervousness that they had when they first joined college after their schooling.

The colourful atmosphere was a celebration in itself. The students of Bishop Cotton Women’s Christian College spoke to Metrolife about their experiences.

 “I have butterflies in my stomach but I really hope to make some friends soon,” said Monica Jain, who was highly enthusiastic about her college life.  Nivetha Iyyappan, who loved the campus, said she has joined the college because of the good reputation it has.

“It’s a great environment to study in, definitely better than my previous college which was just a building without a campus. The best part about this college is the love birds that are caged near the pantry. I can just sit there and stare at them endlessly,” she adds.

Many newcomers admitted that they were looking forward to enjoy themselves amidst all the anxiety and drama.  Farha Deebha, a first-year BCom student and her friends, decided to join this college to have a lot of fun.

“After graduating from school, we got admission in different colleges. But this time, for the degree course, we planned to study in the same college and all of us got through,” she exclaimed.

Although students loved the scenic campus, they cribbed about the very limited hang-outs in the vicinity.

“We don’t have anything outside college; we have to go all the way to Brigade Road if we want to have some fun,” complains Hajira Sayed.

Some students were seen turning nostalgic at the event. The orientation had reminded them of their Pre-University inauguration function in the same college.

“It’s exciting to come back to the same college for a degree. It feels like home to be back on the same campus, meet my friends and teachers,” said Chanchal N Jain.

Kunguma Keerthana explained that she was very comfortable with the college and its ambience as she had been a part of the Pre-University batch and knows her teachers and campus very well.  She said that she had even convinced some of her school friends to join this college to pursue a degree.
