The idea of being promoted to a new year/semester usually excites students even though the friends they study with and the college they go to remain the same. After all, it means the beginning of a whole new set of experiences and learning with friends and teachers.
We talked to some college-goers to find out what they look forward to in a new semester/year.
Sabya Acharya, 16, Pentagon International College, Tinkune
When I joined my college after school, I was completely new to the environment. I didn’t know the teachers, and friends were also complete strangers to me then. But toward the end of my 11th Grade, everything started becoming familiar. Since I could open up with my friends, teachers and staff later, I was excited about Class 12. In Grade11, we were given a welcome party by seniors so I’m also excited to be organizing the party for the freshers this year. And in Class 11, we were just the members of various clubs of the college while in Grade 12, we get to be their board members. This is another fascinating factor of going to Class 12.

Going to a new semester is usually exciting. In our college, we are taken to field trips outside the Valley every semester till the third year. So what we usually look forward to in the new semester is the field trip. And we’re also given a new classroom every year, which makes our college days fresher. I enjoy being friends with the juniors who get enrolled in the college each year. Our seventh semester will start this week and what I’m waiting for eagerly this time is the internship I’ll have to get engaged with.
Neha Shakya, 21, Kantipur Engineering College, Dhapakhel
A new semester means an opportunity to study new and interesting subjects. At the beginning of every semester, I get this feeling that I have to work harder for better grades. Getting to meet new and inspiring teachers is another factor that makes the beginning of a semester exciting. However, when a new semester starts, I somehow always feel sad that my college life is approaching the end.
Aayush Joshi, 20, Modern Nepal College, Bag Bazaar
After the tiring final examinations of the previous semester, the following few months of a new semester aren’t that hectic. So I love hanging out with my friends during that period. This is the most exciting thing about going to a new semester. Also, I look forward to a new semester to gain knowledge on new things from friends and teachers.
Tohingsho Hang Rai, 22, DAV College, Dhobighat
Completing a semester and being promoted to the next gives me a feeling that I’m growing up. Every semester, I feel that I’m getting nearer my aspiration of finishing college and being financially independent. That’s what I find it more exciting about a new semester. As for now, since I’m going to the 7th semester now, I’ll get to choose Marketing over Finance, so I’m excited to study the subject.
