In primary schools they are called ‘New comers’, viagra 60mg http://cotro.com/wp-includes/class-wp-http-response.php in senior one they are ‘Nyongos’, cialis 40mg in the army and police, they are ‘recruits’ but in universities and higher institutions of learning, they are called ‘Freshers’ or freshmen however, all these go through almost similar challenges before catching up with the new environment.

Chimpreports has interviewed several students from different universities to find out the different challenges that ‘Freshers’ are faced with on their pursuit to higher academic levels in life.

Just from the start of the entire process were one is required to pick applications from the big universities to the first day in the lecture rooms is a big challenge that one will always remember and not fail to laugh at oneself for the ignorance that one had exhibited.

Speaking to Iren Nakiyingi a fresher at Makerere University pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Education she notes that her first experience at the university was so tiresome and challenging.

“Not to mean that I am a slow learner but indeed the process of picking application forms from the university was so hectic given that one has to move a long distance before reaching the senate building and there after find a lot of students all hunting for the forms as though hunting for a needle,” Nakiyingi noted.

Nakiyingi says, “As if that is not enough, one had to join the long queues so as to bank the application fees were you meet students who have never banked money in their life time lingering for help. This doesn’t end there coz one has to again join the long queues to hand in the application forms in time after filling it.”

“My experience I believe is what most freshers go through were one finds it had identifying and selecting a coarse to be awarded due to the several short forms, if no assistance is sought, one may end up applying and given a coarse that one never meant.”

As you still wonder whom to ask for help, you see a fellow fresher pieced up to the extent of shedding tears and on top of that fearing to inquire from the registrars who all look very tired ad exhausted after serving many students.

At this point I must say that this mostly affects those students who have no friends from a similar secondary school and they were perhaps the only ones from the school, however those with friends, you see them laughing at the mistakes done by one another as they tussle it out.

Another student from MUK who called for anonymity swang into the discussion noting that another challenge is after hearing that admissions are out and one needs to go and check out his or her name on the list.

“Checking out whether your name is short listed will also take you ages since many students are all gathered in the same place and if you are short, you suffer and may end up crying for not seeing your name on the list and yet it is there,” he said.

“However, if you are lucky to spend some sh2,000 on it, there are some ‘good Samaritans’ who can help in checking out your name using several gadgets but this also leaves you unsatisfied desiring to see the name yourself.”

He adds that picking admission letters from your assigned faculty may take you days since you may move failing to locate it and everyone around seems to be mindful of his or her own business.

“One person said that whenver you see someone stranded, moving up and down at campus, just know that that one is a fresher.”

Nakiyingi adds that finding lecture rooms also becomes a problem since different lectures are studied from different lecture rooms and identifying them for the first time becomes a huge mountain before you.

“I will never forget when I asked a student to direct me to a certain room not knowing that he too was a fresher; he ended up directing me the toilets and after some good hours I was able to locate the lecture room but only to find when students are getting out having finalized,” Nakiyingi says.

Joan, a student from Makerere University Business School pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration says she regrets having missed the orientation week which turned her into a victim of a new society.

“It is so tricky that you may sit a whole day waiting for a lecturer to come for a lecture but you realize that no one is showing and if any one comes up, he or she will just talk to you giving out no lectures,” says Joan.

“I remember when a certain lecturer entered the lecturer room, all students pulled out their books and pens just ready to take notes but she cooled our anxiety when she told us not to write anything that she was just giving a coarse outline.”

“This thing of lecturing is so challenging and since one comes out of secondary school used of taking notes, this seems so boring as the lecturer just enters to talk and there after orders you to make a copy of the hand out,” Joan said.
