College life: What do You Miss From Your Campus?

College life: What do You Miss From Your Campus?
  • Opening Intro -

    From a college friend of mine:

    Campus is the place I really miss.

    A place full of fun and regrets, where all the loose characters are left untamed, a place where people build or kill their dreams.

-------------------------------------

For most of us who had gone through it, it marked the point where we felt the full ownership of our lives. It was an opportunity we earned. We would practice and cultivate all the suppressed, overgrown seedlings of our teen dreams.

I miss living in the hostels; the “teen Disney World” as I pegged it, was what described the look and transformations in most of the rooms. It provided the perfect refreshing den to retreat after that mind boggling paper our professor gave us. I liked it for the proximity advantage it gave me as I would rush to the campus library or visit my professor anytime I had something to check up, a waiver the off-campus students never enjoyed.

With the number of foreign students and random selection of different personalities from around the country and the world, you get to interact with persons of different cultures and characters. Hook up with a religious and prayerful friend from middle- east, funny and self-composed freestyle guy from the hoods, and the charming and self-principled friend from the beautiful Africa. This at last teaches how to appreciate one’s self whenever self-consciousness kicks confidence out of the skin; it taught me.

The school team was the most possessive part of it all; no one would face the fact of being a loser. It makes everyone a patriot no matter how much you hated the administration. I miss the morning workouts and the dictating words of the coach we all took with respect and submission. The crazy press-up punishments we would happily take without questions. I wasted my voice cheering for the teams I would not dare join (football specifically). I always admired the roughness involved, clapped at the opponent tossed in the air (as though he abandoned his right to humanity when he changed to gaming gears). What I never understood was the magic that would turn all the beautiful cheerleaders I had admired during the game to ugly faces.

I feel like going back and add more effort to bring the As’, the medals, and the crush I always feared home. I want to go back and give surprise to my lab technician with more microscopes, and give the administration I always brushed shoulders with, dozens of MacBook computers for the computer laboratory. I want to renovate that old campus chapel through which I always received blessings. With all the memories of campus, I wished I like it more than I miss it now. How do you remember yours?
