First Year University October 14, 2011

Posted by jennienorgaard in Uncategorized.

Life at the University of Regina for the first month has been really hectic, stressful and frustrating. I find it to be really hard to be living 5 and a half hours away from home. I live in dorm and don’t have a kitchen so I find it really inconvenient in that sense. But living on campus also has its plus sides as well such as you don’t have to get up as early because classes are just a 5 minute walk away. You don’t have to plan for traffic in the mornings, parking is convenient because its close and you also don’t have to drive around campus looking for a parking spot when you live on campus. Classes have been confusing, frustrating but enjoyable as well. Lately,however, homework has been piling up with assignments due all at the same time and midterms being in the same week. So trying to balance my time to do all of my homework has been really frustrating. But as time goes by and as much as I don’t enjoy it, it is getting better.

Thanks for your post! I think you would find the majority of University students would sympathize with your situation. It’s hard transitioning from high school to post-secondary but stay the course. Things will feel more familiar as you move forward 🙂

I agree with Dan (again) Jennie. I found my first year of university very overwhelming…as time goes on and you become more accustomed to university and life away from home it does get easier, and you eventually enjoy it too :).
