After the first week at JUDE...

  • Moni-da's canteen ROCKS. It's not the food- the food is ordinary. It's just that one can't help liking the place, inspite of all the flies. It has a charm of its own. And Moni-da's canteen is always the first place we rush to after Hons. classes. (They suck the energy out of us! We need Moni-da's canteen to rewind!!) And not an hour has gone by this week when I have not mentioned Moni-da's canteen atleast once... (Much to the chagrin of Shreya and Pujarini!)
  • I looooove the ledge! It's the best place to just sit around and chat about random things.
  • It's strange, but I somehow feel I belong here. Does that sound weird? I've waited all my life to get here, and I walked in on the first day with apprehension- but it just seems so natural!
  • Looks like I'm going to enjoy studying in JU. To be very honest, I always thought the English standard in school was waay below me (except for certain texts like 'The Old Man And The Sea' and 'Arms And The Man'). Now when I look at the texts I'm going to be studying, I feel like I've got something I can sink my teeth into. Not literally, of course. I gave up eating paper a long time ago.
  • You know what I like most about JU? The whole atmosphere is so free! Everything's allowed! And no one gives a second glance. It's too chilled out for words. As opposed to other colleges where there are rules everywhere you look!
  • I thought I would let atleast a month or so go by before I bunked my first class. Old habits die hard, I guess. I bunked a class on Wednesday itself.
  • On a more serious note, the campus has waaaayyy too much smoke. There are cigarettes everywhere you look. "Thank you for smoking", it seems JU has taken it seriously.
  • Thought I would have trouble making friends. But it was nowhere as bad as I imagined. Shreya, Pujarini and I have already formed a little threesome, and apart from that- I've gotten to know a few others in the department. Not bad.
  • Yes, I love it here!

JU just seems to be the perfect home for everyone, u need not be a part of it Ju but once u enter u feel at home

i remeber one of mha frnds who came to Ju form xaviers told me it had such a filial atmosphere unlike the plastic one at their campus

The english standard at CBSE is the lowest compared to nething, i wonder what is the mindset of these people who set the texts

on a last note, monidas was mah fav hangout during the initial days for me too but now i divide time between milanda and monida, try them both

The freedom is beautiful, but you have to be careful or can slip. That aside, this place is heaven. Welcome aboard.
