Get involved in campus life
During O-Week, you will see a plethora of societies, organisations, and events vying for your attention.
At first, the array of activities dazzled me and I held a rather reserved attitude towards signing up. My rationale was that I did not know how rigorous the course was going to be, so I did not want to overcommit and find myself cursing my extracurriculars in the stressful days before exams.
However, during the second semester of first year, I signed up for more groups and became involved with campus life. I saw how rich my university experience was compared to my first semester. Join in the activities that capture your interest.
Even though semester two was more academically challenging (courtesy of anatomy), I was more organised and engaged than in semester one. Of course, don’t overcommit yourself to social activities; be sure to leave enough time to do your assignments and study.
