What You Expect Your University Social Life To Be Vs What It Really Is Like

By Momina Mindeel | 22 Sep, 2016

Some of you will be starting your first year at the university, pretty soon while others may be in the throes of a serious crisis during your first ever university semester. Your social life and its dynamics, contrary to your expectations, are going to take a 180 degree turn and you’ll have no clue what it’s going to be like. Apprehensions encompass you all day, every day and the panic attacks may be getting more frequent.

Well, we could have easily helped you get over your concerns but we would rather go with further aggravating them. So, let’s present you with some of the popular expectations of university social life – versus the reality, in case you were getting too carried away while thinking about all the freedom that awaits you. Pfffft!

Reality: This is how you will communicate with most people on your hostel floor.
